Campbells of Ardara

About Us

Campbell’s of Ardara was established in 1963 by Jonjo and Philomena Campbell as a family business sourcing locally the finest tweeds and knitwear for sale in their small store.

Starting a small business in 1960’s Ireland was quite a challenge but through perseverance, courage and true grit they succeeded in building a business.

A shop that attracted visitors from across the World not just for its beautifully crafted merchandise but for the fun and banter that went on with every sale.

During those formative years Jonjo and Philomena raised their young family Marie, Hugh and Niall in the house attached to the shop and taught each of them  the art of running a business and having fun at the same time

The business is now run by Hugh Campbell and by holding to the Campbell’s core values of quality merchandise, excellent customer service and a sprinkling of good humour on top of everything, thankfully the business is going from strength to strength. 

Campbell’s of Ardara is a modern twist on the traditional tweed and knitwear shop, offering our first-rate knitwear, tweeds plus arts & crafts products. We have built this website to allow our friends from across the world to have the opportunity to purchasing our unique products on those times they can’t come and see us.

We hope you like what we have created and that it mirrors the experience of your visit to us in Donegal.
