A visit to Mullingar, Co. Westmeath
Mullingar PewterOur visitors receive a warm welcome upon arrival to our Mullingar Pewter Home & Gift Gallery. One enters the foyer and is immediately immersed in our Experience. The Home and Gift Gallery provides a broad shopping experience for the home and includes many Irish producers. The Pewter Gallery, just off the Foyer to the right, provides our showcase area, where we present our vast Pewter product area, and behind this we have our production area. Mullingar Pewter is handcrafted by skilled workers on site daily (Mon - Friday) and one can visit the production to see it for yourself, though we do recommend prior notice be given as it is subject to availability.
To the left one finds The Pewter Café which produces quality food to satisfy all tastes. Our menu is vast but includes all day breakfasts, quiches, wraps, salads, pastries, and other delicious treats.
Our location allows us to be a must go to destination for those exploring the Royal Canal Greenway which runs almost alongside our building at the Downs Bridge along the newly developed Greenway.
