About the Gallery

Caffreys Gallery is located in the heart of Ballina, Co. Mayo, specialising in Irish made craft and design. Ranging from jewellery and ceramics, to original oil paintings and wall prints, we are proud to house a collection of some of Ireland’s best contemporary artists.

Situated on the Wild Atlantic Way, we have access to some of the country's most talented craftspeople. The assortment of art, craft and design showcased in store makes Caffreys one of the most unique retail outlets in Ireland.

Caffreys Gallery is run by Ernie and Miriam, a father and daughter team. Ernie, a successful businessman, Miriam has had a successful career in ceramics, and it is her love of art and design that has really allowed the business to flourish into what it is today.

The Family Story

The family business and home house has been located on Garden Street, Ballina for over 100 years. Over the past three generations, the family have been involved in the running of various businesses including a pub and a hardware store!

Caffreys Gallery was founded by Ernie and his late wife Phyllis, whose love for art and design meant that her passion for the arts would live on through the business.
