Nicholas Mosse Irish Country Shop

Ceramics in Bennettsbridge

Housed in an old mill across the river from the village, this pottery shop specialises in handmade spongeware – ceramics decorated with sponged patterns – which is exported worldwide to retail outlets such as Tiffany's. Short audiovisual displays explain the manufacturing process.

The cafe here is the best choice locally for lunch, with a range of soups, sandwiches and hot dishes, plus its renowned scones.
