Nicholas Mosse Pottery and Mill Café is a beautiful studio set in a former flour mill in the picturesque village of Bennettsbridge, County Kilkenny. Browse the range of intricately detailed pottery, linen and glass, and enjoy food and drinks in the upstairs café.

Master potter Nicholas Mosse crafts fine earthenware from Irish clay. Decorated with traditional motifs inspired by old Irish spongeware, his work is loved by people across the world. Browse the huge range of pottery over three floors of the charming flour mill, or join a guided tour to see potters create these works of art by hand. Tours must be booked in advance.

Explore the studio and learn about the history of the mill and after, visit the upstairs café that overlooks the River Nore.

The food in the café is made from local ingredients and the flour used in all the baked goods comes from a nearby mill, relax over a coffee in this scenic place.
