Stopped in for lunch & a look around & as usual wasn't disappointed. Beautiful furniture & nick knacks for your home. Have purchased 2 sets of duvet covers in the past & the quality is super. Lunch was tasty & the staff very obliging. They couldn't help us enough. Definitely will return when doing up my house.

Scarves are delightful and always affordable. Blankets and throws are, in my opinion good value for the quality and design. One can often find seconds and discontinued lines... More

The thing about Foxford is that, like many other such establishments across Ireland that originated as factories of some sort, almost nothing in the expensive shop here is now made on site. The visit is pleasant, the shop is gorgeous and the cafe very nice, but the over-riding feeling is that the place is way too expensive and, considering how... More

I was surprised to find such a nice little shop in such a small town. The coffee shop on the same premises has some of the best cakes and coffee I've had in some time.

Nice place to visit to see what workers experienced and how manufacturing was done. Tour was good. Did not use cafe so can't comment. The articles for sale were pretty expensive so not one in our small family group bought anything. Its touristy so be aware of that, we were able to tour just before 2 big buses arrived so... More

A well worth visit to this retail mill. It is very upmarket feel as soon as you go into the shop. The woollen goods they sell is expensive but they are very fine in quality. You only get what you pay for. I would go back again and if you like finer quality woollen clothes, blankets etc give this place... More
