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.

We found this great little pottery store hideaway on the road from Cork to Dingle N22 - near the town of Macroom. Follow the blue POTTERY signs. Gorgeous handmade housewares - fired in a wood kiln. Definitely worth a stop!

If you are a potter lover this is a great find. The owners are both potters. The pieces are very nice and functional. Great gifts and good prices.

Pretty little gem located in the beautiful Cork countryside near Macroom. Went with our family (30s) and we all bought cups, pitchers and vases. Worth a trip!
