The village of Shanagarry where the internationally acclaimed Stephen Pearce Pottery is now operates as The Shanagarry Design Centre (Part of the Kilkenny Group) and is well worth a visit.
The Shanagarry Design Centre alone is worth visiting to see and purchase the wide range of decorative ware they produce using using local clay. Also in Shanagarry is Ballymaloe House, Gardens and Cookery School, an internationally renowned guesthouse and restaurant open to guests all year round. For anyone who loves food Ballymaloe is an absolute must do.
The original home of William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania, is also located in the area.
