Loved this little stop to see all the wonderful pottery. I got the cutest cream and sugar cup/bowl that sit on one another. Very unique! Nice lady who makes all the treasures. One of my favorite souvenirs.

Looking for the ideal wedding present for our friends while traveling through Ireland, we stumbled upon Coolavokig Pottery. We found the perfect vase. Definitely worth a visit on the road from Cork to Dingle N22, near Macroom.

Robb and his wife are very talented potters. They have beautiful pieces that are very functional. Robb was very kind to my friends and I. Great hours and great service. Couldn't have asked for a better find.
