Belleek Pottery, County Fermanagh

The flamboyantly-decorated Parian ware made at Belleek, a tiny village in south-west Fermanagh, since 1857 has become world-renowned. At the pottery, visitors can see the production process for themselves, including the hand - crafting of the basketware designs that characterise Belleek and the hand painting of the designs.

The museum, with its classical style columns, has mant examples of Belleek pottery made since the pottery's foundation, including earthenware which was produced for its first ten years. A presentation in the audio - visual theatre completes the tour. Shop, restaurant.
