This is one of two "Crafts' Shops" on the Cliff Road, on the way down towards Ardmore Village, from the wonderful "Cliff House Hotel" (for some inexplicable reason, "The Anchor - Art & Design" is not yet on "Trip Advisor", despite our best efforts to get it registered). As their name suggests, they're big into Pottery here : some they... More

This outlet is a short walk form the fabulous Cliff House Hotel and is a treasure trove for Wall Art and pottery and even little gifts. A charming Owner adds the Icing to the Cake!

We visited Ardmore, walked along the beach and then decided to see where the road led. We walked along the front with the sea on our left and up a slight incline. There did not appear to be much along here that was open but then in the distance I spotted a sign for a gallery that was open and... More

This craft shop is close to the sea just up the road from the car park. It has a very good selection of various crafts from makers in Ireland, all top quality. It's ideal as a place to buy exclusive presents. I bought two beautiful Irish linen scarves at very reasonable prices and was tempted by much else which I... More

Fantastic choice of both craft and pottery both made in store by the pottery and by other master craftsmen. I always use it for wedding, birthday and Christmas pressies super for little things out of the ordinary. The pottery that is made on site comes in different patterns which is fab. The owners and shop assistants are always charming and... More

I picked up a painting of the cliff walk in ardmore to remind us of our mini moon and getting married. Staff are working away... More

I love visiting this shop. So many wonderful craft works. Love Mary's pottery and one always gets a very warm welcome plus a cup of coffee. Her shop is a super advertisement for the Irish craft industry.
