Welcome to the historic grade II listed Bloomvale House, home of the award-winning Ballydougan Pottery, Gift Shop, Restaurant and Coffee Shop, Pottery Workshop & Courtyard Cottages.

At Ballydougan Pottery, the tradition of excellence is carried on to this day by highly skilled potters. In the workshop each piece of pottery is thrown and decorated by skilled hands to produce a comprehensive range of kitchenware and giftware items. Each piece is designed to be used and enjoyed and is as strong and reliable as it is beautiful.

Take time to meander through the historic 18th Century gift shop, where the full range of Ballydougan Pottery and other quality gifts are on display. Then relax in the restaurant & coffee shop and enjoy fine home cooking at its best, freshly prepared in our kitchens using the finest local produce....breakfast, morning coffee, lunch or afternoon tea.
