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 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
