Irish Walking Sticks

For those of you who like to stay true to origins, you are sure to love our authentic Irish walking sticks direct from our partners workshop in Ireland. For anyone looking for a truly authentic Irish walking stick you are sure to thoroughly enjoy these types of walking sticks.

These are one piece Irish walking sticks from a very wide range of wood species including Alder, Ash, Birch, Blackthorn, Elderberry, Gorse, Hazel, Hawthorn, Holly, Ivy, Privet and Rhododendron. All of these walking sticks are sourced locally in Ireland and finished by hand in a real rustic woodshop. Each stick is a unique piece, individually crafted and with its own handle as nature produced it.

Each walking stick is produced from naturally grown shanks so the size and quality can vary significantly. Each handle has to be shaped, the shank is heated for some straightening (not a lot), then follows much boring sanding and, finally, several finishing coats are applied. Very few sticks will turn out to be blemish free. This is to be expected and natural cracks and colour variations must be accepted as normal characteristics.

Our slogan ‘Created by Nature – finished by hand’ accurately describes our sticks. We avoid the temptation to straighten them like billiard cues or to hide natural imperfections or other little idiosyncrasies. Instead we concentrate on shaping a comfortable grip on the handle. Once this is achieved we shave, sand and finish the shank to enhance whatever color and grain that nature has given the stick. The end product is always a stick with its own unique look and character… one that you the owner can establish an affinity with knowing that you will never see a copy with anyone else.
