What is Belleek Pottery?

Belleek is one of Northern Ireland’s oldest potteries and 2017 marks their 160th anniversary. The Belleek headquarters are still located in the original building used for the production of the first pieces of Belleek in County Fermanagh in 1870. The company was originally intended to give employment to many affected by the Irish Potato Famine. No one could have envisioned it would grow into the worldwide success of today.
Each piece of Belleek Pottery is individually designed and crafted using techniques which have been passed down from generation to generation throughout the last 160 years. Each piece of pottery passes through 16 pairs of talented and experienced hands before it is shipped out to its new owner. To ensure only the highest quality of finishes, the entire process is meticulous with pieces being confined to the scrap heap for even the tiniest of flaws. The Belleek name embodies a worldwide reputation for craftsmanship and quality and each piece produced by the historical company does not disappoint.
