The Irish use very colorful glazes on their pottery. The favorite colors seem to be blues, maroons and browns. The glazes are almost iridescent, so if you have a blue glaze, you can see greens and purples in the color. Most of the pottery features some sort of Celtic symbol - Celtic knots for example.
The prices here were a bit pricier, but fair. They took great care in wrapping your purchases so you could take them safely on the plane back with you. Or, they offer to ship your purchases home (small fee.)
I bought my kind cat-sitter a wonderful coffee mug - big enough to hold three cups for sure, and it cost me around 15 euros. I could've bought out the shop, but I didn't. My credit card would've yelled at me. Phone 091-566110
