The notable pottery produced in Belleek has been produced for 150 years. Tours of the factory get you up close to the craftspeople as they work.

The clip above offers a great introduction, and this episode of Ireland’s Countrywise takes an even closer look. If you’ve got a piece of Belleek in your home, you might enjoy visiting Belleek’s website where you can date the mark on the bottom.
