We are regular visitors, we love it. Sometimes service is a little slow, but we're not usually in a hurry when we're in this very pleasant cafe.

Cute inside but the food... More

Great place to relax and enjoy wonderful home coked food. We have been there several times and always call in there every time we are in Kilrush. The Wedenesday evening Irish classes are a great way to learn the language.

Receive a warm welcome from Aisling and staff at the Potters Hand Cafe and a lovely mug(in my case) of coffee. What you notice first upon entering the Potters Hand is that there is a nice relaxed atmosphere inside.
