A small group of us were hosted by Adrian at Kinsale Pottery for a corporate retreat and we thoroughly enjoyed it, the environment was perfect to help us achieve the outcomes we needed and the teambuilding pottery was great fun and has continued to generate discussions among the group 6 weeks later

What can I say? I'm not a shopper! I walked in here and an hour and a half later had bought a painting, gorgeous, (you should see the color!) tea/coffee cups as well as jewelry. Lovely to walk into a store which not only holds your attention, but offers unique and beauiful products!

The afternoon workshop was a fantastic experience. Participants who were initially apprehensive returned full of enthusiasm. Adrian and his team provided a wonderful educative experience for the whole group, including some young children. Highly recommended. Advance planning of the event with Adrian was excellent with clear concise and timely communication throughout the process.

To anyone who ever thought of doing pottery as a hen party activity this is definitely the place to come! We had an absolute ball! It definitely brings out your creative side. It's great for mixing the group up and getting people talking to each other. Adrian, is fantastic. He's so well organised and brilliant to deal with. Highly recommend... More

My daughter who was 7 attended 1 week summer camp and thoroughly enjoyed it. She did lots of different arts & crafts and brought home everything she made which is still in tact surprisingly enough!! She met lots of kids and had a great time. On leaving she said she wanted to do it again next year!

The facilities were comfortable and the setting was beautiful. Unfortunately there was a problem with the firing and our original pieces were lost but the... More
