Fodor's Review

For generations the name Belleek has been synonymous with much of Ireland's delicate ivory porcelain figurines and woven china baskets (sometimes painted with shamrocks). Belleek Pottery Ltd. is the best known of the producers, in operation since 1857. The main factories are in Northern Ireland (which is why their prices are quoted in pounds sterling, not euros) just down the road from Ballyshannon. Watch the introductory film, take the 30-minute tour, stop by for refreshment

in the tearoom, or just head to the on-site shop. The factory-museum-store is near the border with Northern Ireland. Company products can also be found in the shops of Donegal and Sligo.

5 ***

That was supposed to be 5 stars and I'm trying to see how I can edit them....I was also trying to delete the review and start again but I can't seem to do that. It's a beautiful place to go in Ireland. Also the pottery and China is gorgeous. I used to buy Belleek online where they sell it at www.thewishlistgifts.com and then eventually got to come to the home of it. Absolutely stunning product. I'll be back in the near future.
