We had a wonderful time at this shop! Our daughter was given a pottery lesson and made her own piece, which was later glazed and shipped to us. It was a real treat to open the package after our return to the US. The cafe upstairs is definitely worth a visit. And the pottery is just beautiful. Don't miss this... More

A rainy windy day, Scenery obscured by the mist so we stopped here. A very pleasant surprise as there was so much very fine pottery - something for everyone from candle holders, dishes, vases, and every sinks! Lovely colors and very fine work.

A wonderful place to stop for lunch on the Slea Head Drive. The pottery is beautiful and there are woolens there made by his wife who has a shop in Dingle Town. The busses weren't stopped here so it was a quiet lunch and the food was very very good. Highly recommended!

I was expecting a small workshop and not much else. Boy was I surprised and delighted when we drove up and went... More

He has made so many pieces that the place is packed with dinner services, vases, plates and huge urns. They are beautiful. He's been very busy! We saw people having a go on the pottery wheel and it looked fun. The cafe was very relaxed and we enjoyed tea and cakes there. Worth a stop if you're driving round Slea... More

If you are on the Slea head drive a visit to the pottery is well worth while. A great selection of table ware, lamps, shades available to choose from. The fuchsia emblem on the craft pieces is well worth having as a memento of this great area

We stop here every time we are on Slea Head and its such a pleasant place to relax and enjoy good coffee in mugs which are made on the premises which is nice if you plan to purchase some pottery. Good food and great pottery.
