Founded in 1969 by Patrick Clancy Kilkenny Crystal is Ireland's oldest Family-owned Crystal Studio Workshop. Our use of traditional techniques means that our crystal is likened to antique quality. Each piece is deeply cut by hand and then polished with care to retain a fine finish. We create many original designs and unusual pieces and due to the limited number of pieces produced each year many items become valuable collectors items. Our product range and full history of Kilkenny Crystal can be found on our web site.

Got some cute stuff but don't see why it got 5 stars. If you are looking for crystal wine glasses or pitchers then great! Not the best representation of the shopping in Kilkenny. Go to the Design Center, too!More

Our visit to Kilkenny Crystal in Callan was amazing. We were treated to a demonstration of how the crystal is hand cut. In the shop were beautiful examples of crystal items made by this family-owned company. There is also a shop in Kilkenny. If you...More

Drove in off the highway from Clonmel, rang bell and got a very friendly impromptu tour, beautiful gifts reasonably priced. Waterford crystal business is closed but this tiny handmade crystal business is still going. Shop also located in downtown Kilkenny. Gifts can be shipped overseas.
