Nicholas Mosse Irish Country Shop

One of the best reasons to venture out from Kilkenny city to nearby Bennettsbridge is to visit the Nicholas Mosse Pottery in their old mill which is located in a lovely rural setting on the banks of the River Nore.


The restored mill is beautifully situated and very spacious, with two floors of pottery, including a large seconds area where some great bargains are to be found. The full range of products is wide, including glass and table linens, blankets, quilts and home accessories - as well as acres of the famous spongeware.


Their café is on the first floor, overlooking the river, and a lovely spot for lunch or teas; the food offering has been widened of late and you can now choose from a concise list of about ten appealing savoury dishes including ever-popular cottage pie and lasagne, quiches and a salmon and asparagus pie; served with good homemade breads, salads and chutneys, these make a tasty meal, and wine is now available too.


But good home baking has always been their big thing, including cakes and desserts like sticky toffee pudding and chocolate brownie - and, of course, delicious freshly-baked scones made with the local Mosse's flour, and sold with good coffee or tea.


Parking is easy and free and there's a lift in the store, also friendly staff who are always pleased to help. Worldwide shipping is offered, also mail order, gift wrapping, and a wedding service.

Seats 35; Cafe opening hours: Mon - Sat 11am - 5pm; Sunday 1.30 - 4pm. Children welcome (high chair, baby changing facilities); toilets wheelchair accessible. Closed 25-27 Dec & 1 Jan. Amex, Diners, MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
