At his studio/workshop in Clogher, Ballyferriter, on the Dingle Peninsula, Louis Mulcahy designs and makes the very best Irish craft Pottery in robust stoneware and exquisite fine porcelain. Louis Mulcahy has been potting for over forty years. The last of the big potteries making all their pottery exclusively in Ireland, his workshop and its sister companies in weaving and lampshade decoration have grown from his and his wife Lisbeth's original two-man operation to employ over twenty people. Pottery Experience At our pottery we have an area dedicated to those visitors who wish to experience the craft for themselves. A professional thrower can be seen going through the daily routine of throwing pots. This person will deal with all the questions that may arise pertaining to the process and even allow visitors try their skill at making a shape. Learn how the pottery is made from start to finish - during the Summer (July & August) we offer fully guided workshop tours. (Pre-booking essential). This gives visitors an interesting break on their Slea Head tour. “Brilliant service & make your own pot experience was excellent” - Sara Marcozi, UK

Wonderful shapes and colours but the highlight must surely be the opportunity for children to get "hands on" with the one-to-one guidance of a patient expert tutor. The coffee shop is very good too.
