Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Recently visited Busy Bee Ceramics with my best friend and our mums on our annual day out. We had the best time with Brenda who filled us full of confidence with her positive vibes and anecdotes. She broke everything down and supported us first timers throughout! We cannot wait to get our works of art in the post, if you can call them that… 😉

I was brought here for my birthday and had the best experience making our own pots at the pottery wheel with the much needed help and expertise from Brenda and Antonia who made our time there not only instructive but great fun too. I am really looking forward to seeing the finished products and would love to do it again. I cannot recommend Busy Bee enough.

Myself and my 4 sisters came here as part of birthday celebrations for one of us. Brenda and Antonia were fantastic! They made us feel very welcome and comfortable, but not only that, joined in with our fun and made it very special.
They were also very good instructors and gave us confidence with the clay and in trying to make and shape things.
This was a fantastic experience and we would all highly recommend it.

We visited busy bee ceramics as a little treat for my mum’s 50th birthday. It’s safe to say the experience was everything we hoped for and more ! We were guided through the process of forming our own mugs, bowls and basically whatever we wanted to created .... Such friendly staff who were so patient and down to earth ! They were great with the youngest (12 years) to the oldest member of our group. I am so excited to return in the future - couldn’t recommend this more to anyone considering a pottery experience. Also this little studio is set in a gorgeous little village !

This is such a lovely way to pass an hour or two with a partner or friend. We had the place to ourselves and it was fabulous. We were taken through a demonstration with the clay and boards and then left to it, I asked for help as I wanted the perfect mug haha and it came out so well. You have the option to paint the clay but we left ours au natural, our final products will be shipped out to us in a few weeks. 35 euros each (plus 5euro pp post to north Ireland) and you can make a pot or a mug (they do the handle for you). Overall I highly recommend this unique and lovely experience!

We had a really enjoyable time in the pottery pour deux class with Brenda, she made it easy to get going on the wheel and gave great advice throughout the lesson, would definitely reccomend it as a unique day out!
