Belleek Pottery was established in 1857 and holds a special place in Ireland's cultural and commercial heritage. Located in the quaint village of Belleek in Co Fermanagh on the banks of the River Erne, it is home to Ireland's oldest working fine china pottery. The skill and craftsmanship has been passed down through the generations, keeping the art alive over the last 160 years. Each piece of pottery passes through a special process that touches 16 pairs of hands to get to the final product. The factory produces more that 100,000 pieces of pottery a year.
