Many National Trust places across Northern Ireland have their own gift shops. They stock a broad range of gift ideas, including books, videos, CDs, clothing, jewellery, craft and children's items. All are at surprisingly affordable prices.

Every pound of profit generated by our shops helps the Trust's conservation work - caring for our coast, countryside and historic buildings.
