Irish Lace


A recent article in Ireland of the Welcomes magazine about Irish lace lamented that there is no “dedicated textile museum where collections can be viewed.” But in a sleepy little town near Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh is the extravagant Sheelin Lace Museum.

Layer upon layer of antique Irish lace is artistically showcased among elegant displays of jewelry, embroidery, feathers, satin and crystal chandeliers. Some items are for sale, while the more precious permanent collection is archived in glass cases.
