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!

We were staying in Dingle and did the Slea Head drive. One of our friends who had vacationed in Dingle had told us that we must go to Louis Mulcahy Pottery and have our daughter make some pottery. 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.

This is a gem of a place visited after a long day of photography at Smerwick, Kinard and Clogher. Conditions were rough, but superb for photography. The cafe serves first class food, not over priced. The staff, I thought, were a little stand-offish at first, but by the second cappuccino they had warmed up, as had I. I had a... More

I think there is nothing quite like driving through the countryside and actually coming across a pottery place or an art gallery or shop dedicated to art. Thats what I love about Ireland and of course Co. Kerry in general. And to stumble upon probably one of the best known pottery shop in the country made my heart beat with... More
