Blackthorn and Willow, in the centre of the historic village of Glenarm, is a craft shop specialising in kitchenware. We stock a selection of beautiful and functional locally produced goods: jugs, mugs, bowls and jars from local potters; willow baskets; bread and cheese boards; pure Irish linen tablecloths, runners and napkins; felted tea cosies and table runners; quilted throws and cushions. We also keep a small range of locally produced foods: jams, chutneys, oils, biscuits, teas and a choice of Irish sea vegetables. In addition, every Saturday there is a selection of ‘Blackthorn Breads’ on sale – artisan loaves made from the finest of ingredients.

Blackthorn and Willow is just a few minutes’ walk from Glenarm Forest so for those who are heading that way we also sell beautifully carved walking sticks, made in the village. (We also have a few Glenarm Forest Bears!).

Finally, we display a range of original artwork – much of which depicts local sites and scenery.
