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. 

Visitor Centre 

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. 

Excellent Service – loved the pottery making.

Café na Caolóige 

At our Café we aim to serve the best of locally produced food, so why not savour a taste of West Kerry, on your stop at our workshop. Our menu includes Dingle Organic Smoked Salmon, Dingle Peninsula Cheese platters, Smoked mackerel pate with local brown bread or our own seaweed bread, homemade soup, Paninis and a selection of cakes and scones baked here in the café – all served on our handmade pottery. 

We had been through Clogher many times over the last 18 years, but not stopped at your shop. We will be sure to visit, again. Also worth mentioning … we had an absolutely delicious lunch in the café. Thanks, again.   The Smiths
