Big Mill, Bennettsbridge, Kilkenny, Republic of Ireland
Vist the actual pottery where the distinctive Nicholas Mosse range - one of Ireland's best known craft items - is created by hand. Set in a former flour mill in the picturesque village of Bennetsbridge, just off the N9 and near the 'Marble City' - Kilkenny.
Nicholas Mosse has been a potter since he was seven and a visit to his riverside shop in Bennettsbridge, County Kilkenny will explain why.
Nick's earthenware is made from Irish clay, fired with home grown Irish waterpower and decorated with traditional motifs inspired by old Irish spongeware. Its universal charm and appeal have made it loved and sought after throughout the world.
Visitors can browse among a huge selection of Nicholas Mosse pottery, linen and glass, over 3 floors of the store.
Finally, end your visit in our cafe which is housed upstairs in the attractive mill which is the home of Nicholas Mosse Pottery. It provides splendid views of the River Nore and the magnificent multi-arched bridge from which the town gets its name. Lunch is served daily.
