The Sheep’s Head is home to a vibrant community of craft producers: artists, potters, sculptors, feltmakers and blacksmiths to name but a few
And there are many reasons why so many artists and craftspeople choose to make their home along the Sheep’s Head Way.
This is a landscape that changes at every turn in the road, and with every change in the light. It serves as a wonderful inspiration for our potters, blacksmiths, painters and craftspeople, and the wonderful work they create.
Visit Dunbeacon Pottery, to see Helen Ennis who produces her acclaimed work in Durrrus. Or call to Cronin’s Forge to admire examples of Celtic-inspired metalwork. Bantry’s Craft Shop is a great place to pick up a memento of your visit to West Cork.
And at Sheep’s Head Producers Market in Kilcrohane you’ll find local jams, chutneys and seaweeds alongside the work of local craftspeople, stone carvers and jewellery makers. It’s impossible to go home empty-handed!
