"Tinkers (sometimes known as..." Killarney Local Custom Tip by feline01

Killarney Local Customs: 9 reviews and 14 photos


Tinkers (sometimes known as gypsies) can be found alongside rural roadways in Ireland. They're like everyone else, just trying to make a living. Many times, they sell or do handicrafts that are beautiful and much less expensive than in tourist areas. Stop and look around, have a chat and maybe make a purchase.
