An old mill on the riverbank is home to one of Ireland’s best-loved craft workshops, Nicholas Mosse Pottery.
Explore its history, watch the ceramics being formed and decorated, browse through the extensive Irish Country Shop (filled with all sorts of necessary items and gifts for country lovers!) or book a tour to get up close to the action.
Going strong after 40 years, Nick and his team of local craftspeople use an old Irish technique called ‘Spongeware’ to create their charming range of pottery.
The pottery is also famous for its use of ecologically friendly processes, from hydro electricity to recycling and upcycling every bit of material. The café, the riverside seating and even the goats make this a must for visitors to Kilkenny.

‘Your Daily Adventure’ is loved by visitors. There is so much to enjoy, we’ve had to create six regional editions to cover every part of Ireland.
Each FREE edition is packed with up-to-date information on all there is to do, see and enjoy around Ireland. Watch out for them in your travels, or ask for them by name ‘Your Daily Adventure’. They are stocked in most places visitors’ frequent – particularly visitor-friendly accommodation!
