We left Belfast yesterday morning, heading west to Mayo and Connemara. We drove first to Enniskillen, where last year’s G8 meeting was held, and had a quick lunch, then on to the Belleek pottery site for a strategic strike on the gift shop. The factory and museum is situated on the banks of the river Erne, in County Fermanagh. They have tea room, the museum, and a nice showroom/gift shop.
In the museum was the piece of Belleek shown below that is one of the most breathtaking pieces of craftsmanship I have ever seen. It was exhibited at a Paris exhibition and is composed of hundreds flowers. Exquisite.
