Royal Tara has been a top producer in exquisite fine bone china and giftware for over 50 years in the charming city of Galway, Ireland. Their luxury ceramics are delicately hand-painted with some of the most beautiful Celtic designs and often feature favorite Irish blessings. Perfect for a special gift for anyone with Irish roots or missing Ireland! When you buy Royal Tara bone china, you’re not just buying a mug or plate. You’re buying a piece of Irish history. Galway has been a commercial center in Ireland since at least the 16th century when it was ruled by 14 cooperating merchant families, so it’s no surprise that that heritage continues in today’s Royal Tara company. Today a bustling city with a thriving university population and heavy tourist draw, Galway offers something for everyone, and since the 1960s, Royal Tara has been there to provide all who pass through with quality chinaware, metalwork, and plaques to remember their stay.

Royal Tara Fine Bone China Selection

Every piece of Royal Tara merchandise features a symbol of Ireland, whether the trinity knot, Claddagh, harp, or even a sheep. All are crafted with the highest commitment to quality, ensuring that your gift will last years. Their commitment to functionality and originality leads the ethos of Royal Tara, ensuring that items as simple as mugs and plates are visual beauties with a complexity not often seen outside a long tradition of Irish and Celtic art.

Royal Tara Tableware

Many designs used by Royal Tara come directly from the Book of Kells, a medieval Irish manuscript that has become the most famous illuminated book of the time period in Europe. With classically Celtic designs like interwoven animals, letters, and human figures creating a tapestry in the paint on the parchment, the Book of Kells has inspired generations of artists. Royal Tara seamlessly integrates such designs into their line of tableware, including cups, saucers, mugs, plates, and more.

Royal Tara Shamrock Gift Mug Set- these mugs are made of hand-painted Bone China and feature one of the most famous and lucky of Irish symbols: the shamrock.

Clara Woolly Ware Tea Bag Holder- this cute tea bag is both stylish and convenient- made of durable ceramic and is designed in the shape of a black sheep with white wool

Royal Tara even offers tea sets that come with multiple cups as well as a selection of classic Irish teas.

Celtic Stained Glass Panels

Stained glass in Ireland also has a long and noble history, with some of the best-stained glass artists of the 20th century coming from the small country. People like Harry Clarke and Evie Hone helped create a contemporary style of stained glass that moved beyond the traditional gothic use of color and light and a uniquely Irish style. Royal Tara’s line of stained glass panels called back to that history with panels that you can hang in your window, on your porch or patio, or even on a plain wall. The panels are beautifully rendered in greens, yellows, blues, and reds, featuring Celtic knot motifs and coming in a variety of styles. Some feature full-length Irish blessings, while others feature Irish words like Sláinte, or “health” (what the Irish use for a traditional drinking cheers), or Fáilte, meaning “welcome.”

Royal Tara Celtic Wall Plaques

Royal Tara also offers a collection of Celtic bronze plaques in similar styles for a more austere design. By far the most popular Irish symbol is the shamrock, and you’ll find it just about everywhere on Royal Tara’s selection of products. Legend has it that Saint Patrick used the shamrock to teach pagan Ireland about the holy trinity—one stem connected to three leaves, representing the idea of one god with three parts, the father, son, and holy spirit. Since the conversion of Ireland to Christianity, the shamrock has become as inseparable a symbol for Ireland as glaze from a kiln-fired plate. Today, it still represents the trinity, in addition to being a symbol of good luck and fortune to those who believe.
