Arklow Pottery was a pottery founded in 1934 and formally opened by Seán Lemass (Minister for Industry and Commerce) 29 July 1935 in South Quay, Arklow, County Wicklow, Ireland. The company produced many decorative earthenware goods and general table crockery. It was taken over by Noritake but following financial difficulties ceased production in 1999.[1][2]

There is an Arklow Pottery cup and saucer with Tiger strips, designed by John Ffrench around 1950, held and exhibited by the National Museum of Ireland. Arklow pottery is now closed.[3]
