Throw a pot - Experiences to Savor on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way

Out at the very edged of Europe, the Wild Atlantic Way stretched 1500 miles alond Ireland's western seaboard. From Malin Head in Co Donegal to Kinsale in Co Cork, through regions like Connemara, Galway Bay and Kerry, it's the longest defined coastal drive in the world!

Here is just one of the experiences to savor on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way:

Throw a pot inspired by the wold Atlantic: At the far end of the Dingle Peninsula, on the scenic Slea Head Drive, is the workshop of one of Ireland's leading potters - the renowned Louis Mulcahy. The low building - with its studio, factory, shop and cafe - folds into the fields, mountains at its back and the tumultuous waters of the Blasket Sound below. This is the setting that inspires Louis's wonderful work: he talks of the rapid changing colors of the light and the sea - from greys to blues to light greens...the purples and browns of the heather and shadows on the mountains...and the roaring red sunsets. Come in the summer months, meet Louis, take the workshop tour and try your hand at throwing a simple shape, inspired by the wild Atlantic on the doorstep. You can take the raw simple pot away with you or have it glazed, fired and delivered to your door.
