About
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. 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.

Expected a great variety to cater for visitors/ tourists but found the floor stock quite pedestrian. Good location with a small coffee shop attached

Not my favourite place
Sep. 2019 • Friends
Unfortunately, my experience wasn't the greatest. Staff were very disinterested in service, lacked smiles and personality.
It's a shame, because the pottery was exquisite and we were going to purchase more, however decided to leave instead.

Lovely stop on Slea Head Rd
Jul. 2019
We were suggested to visit this pottery shop. The drive there from Dingle is just beautiful. Shop has lovely pieces, a little pricey, Bought a beautiful mug for $20.

Beautiful shop- Need to stop
Jun. 2019 • Couples
If doing the Slea Head drive this is really worth a stop.If going to the Blasket center or the ferry to Great Blasket its just past them both. Great selection of pottery you know is made there and not in China. Compared to the quality we did not find the prices ridiculously high and they have plenty of small items (my wife bought 2 egg cups) and they can ship. Shop is very airy with helpful staff on each level. We did not use the cafe other than to take a bathroom break

LOVELY CERAMICS....

The Cafe was closed unfortunately, as we heard it was a great place for coffee and scone. Ceramics are lovely. Some unusual and all quite expensive, tho' when you see the work put into their creation, you have to understand. The staff were lovely and friendly. Do visit. Worth a look. ENJOY!

Well worth a visit

This is a surprisingly big shop to find in Ballyferriter, bang in the middle of some of the greatest scenery in the world. There is a wide range of superior - and relatively expensive - pottery on display on two floors, and a very pleasant cafe with a choice of snacks and cakes. I particularly liked the huge amphora, some of which are displayed in the garden outside.

Good quality pottery in very attractive designs. Wished I had been able to make something, but time didn’t permit.

Beautiful location. Visited for the umteenth time but it never fails to impress. My daughter tried her hand at the kiln and made a little bowl. Well worth the €9.90. Lovely helpful staff! Pottery is stunning but expensive although you can find something small to take home. Lovely cafe aswell with great coffee!

Monday’s well spent

Visited Louis Mulcahy Pottery and Café today. Had a look around the shop- expensive but unique. No place for small children as shop is tight for space & expensive objects could easily be broken. Shop & café very clean. Treated ourselves to coffee and a slice of cake. Coffee available in Mug or Cup sizes. Pottery from the collection used to serve customers. Prices of cake and coffee very reasonable . Didn’t have time for lunch but saw what was being served and it looked delicious. Side door can be opened in hot weather to allow air and views to be displayed. Staff polite and friendly. Will return and would recommend if passing through Slea Head drive.
