A wonderful stop on a whirlwind tour of Ireland. What started out as a pit stop and coffee break ended up a mini shopping trip. I could have easily spent a small fortune in this place! Oh wait I did! I ended up purchasing one of the whimsical masks hanging on the wall. Great piece to remind me of the... More

this is a wonderful place to stop along your tour of the Dingle peninsula. The pottery is beautiful, and comes in a variety of colors. I purchased a couple of pieces to use in my kitchen. The pottery makes a great gift.....for yourself or someone else. I thought the prices were very reasonable.

Louis Mulcahy Pottery - Excellent Pottery! We made a stop at the Louis Mulcahy Pottery store and shop on our way from Dingle. We purchased several pottery items and my daughter made her own pottery in the workshop. Just Excellent!

Beautiful pieces in a range of colours, "Guinness like" black and cream, blue, green and red and brown from small tea light holders to 3 feet feature vases, lamps and even sinks! Worth a visit, there is also a small cafe and book shop as well as a range of "Bog Standard" soaps and beautiful linen napkins.

Our tour stopped to eat at a restaurant that had these great candle holders. The restaurant told us where they bought them and our guide, Mark, from Driftwood tours, knew the pottery shop. It was a great stop because we bought the candle holder and looked at the wonderful assortment of pottery on display. Now we have a great memory... More

Hi, we were in Dingle on a misty windy day. During the drive around Slea Head we went into Louis Mulcahy. Even though we had not booked and the lady who does the pottery making with the youngsters was due to finish she very kindly stayed on to fit in our two(12 &10). They really enjoyed it and can't wait... More

We loved Dingle and happened on this potter. There is always something special about bringing home a handmade piece of art. There was a large inventory, lovely designs and everything was well displayed. Something here for every pocketbook. If you don't want to hand carry back a small piece, there is shipping available. Want an even more original piece, make... More

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.
