This yard was once a farmyard, stables and kitchen gardens which provided the fresh produce for the Wandesforde family and many who lived and worked on the estate during the 1700's.
It is little surprise that visitors to the yard are forever in awe of the quality Irish craft on show here. Some of Ireland’s most innovative craftspeople are based here and they all craft on site.
From potters to ceramicists and jewellers, each studio shop offers an opportunity to meet the maker in what is a refreshing and eye opening experience that will delight any craft enthusiast. It is also part of the Castlecomer Discovery Park.
