Overview
More
At his studio/workshop in Clogher, Ballyferriter, on the Dingle Peninsula, Louis Mulcahy designs and makes the very best Irish craft Pottery in robust stoneware and exquisite fine porcelain. Louis Mulcahy has been potting for over forty years. The last of the big potteries making all their pottery exclusively in Ireland, his workshop and its sister companies in weaving and lampshade decoration have grown from his and his wife Lisbeth's original two-man operation to employ over twenty people. Pottery Experience At our pottery we have an area dedicated to those visitors who wish to experience the craft for themselves. A professional thrower can be seen going through the daily routine of throwing pots. This person will deal with all the questions that may arise pertaining to the process and even allow visitors try their skill at making a shape. Learn how the pottery is made from start to finish - during the Summer (July & August) we offer fully guided workshop tours. (Pre-booking essential). This gives visitors an interesting break on their Slea Head tour. “Brilliant service & make your own pot experience was excellent” - Sara Marcozi, UK

Wonderful pottery with a great cafe and delicious food. Exquisite pottery for all tastes. Parking available. Located just a few miles away from Ballyferriter on Dingle Peninsula Co. Kerry. You can watch and also learn how to make the beautifully designed pottery.

Wonderful stop on our trip along the Dingle Peninsula! The artistry is stunning. The pieces are well-made and the glazes are beautiful! Wish I could have taken more pieces home.

Could have spent the entire day browsing through the showroom, however it was a short stop on our drive through. Found a beautiful set of cups and saucers! Alas, the cost of international freight far outweighed the desire to own them. Didn't want to chance...More

Wonderful shapes and colours but the highlight must surely be the opportunity for children to get "hands on" with the one-to-one guidance of a patient expert tutor. The coffee shop is very good too.
