About your host

Hi, my name is Conor and I'm the owner of Kilkee Forge! At Kilkee Forge we create bespoke artworks and teach the ancient craft of blacksmithing! This is a family business spanning 5 generations of blacksmiths and dates back to the mid 1700's. Conor has been practicing his art for over 10 years and holds a degree in Product Design along with a City & Guilds certificate in forge work.

What we’ll do

From the off you'll immerse yourself in the world of Thebes's blacksmith! After taking you through some health and safety procedures, Conor will give a quick demo of some of the basic techniques of a blacksmith. Then you'll try your hand at forging a piece that you can be proud to bring home! Each class is tailored to you and we can work at whatever pace is suitable. Individuals will be brought…

What I’ll provide

Safety equipment and Creative supplies
We will provide safety equipment including safety glasses, ear protection, gloves and aprons. All necessary tooling will be provided also.

What to bring

Cotton clothing and old shoes / boots

Where you'll be

Our forge is situated only 2km from Kilkee and is 50 metres from our original family forge which dates back to the 1700's. Our current forge houses two large anvils from which you will forge your items.
