Purchasing Waterford crystal

I am travelling to Ireland in Aug-Sept. and want to buy a set of Millenium goblets for a relative who has broken one of her set . Her goblets are Waterford crystal. I am planning to be in Dublin for 3 days; Galway for 4 days and Killarney for 6 days. Does anyone have any information about where I could go to purchase this? Any tips would be appreciated.

Maybe, this place in North Carolina, featured in the weekend Travel Section of The Washington Post might be able to help out with finding the missing goblets:

I love Waterford crystal and when the millennium glasses came on sale I didn't just buy a pair I bought three pairs (6 toasting flutes) of each of their designs. This was from their old site at Killybrack (I think that is what it was called). I enjoy using my crystal, I'm not one to save things for "special occasions", every day is special to me.

Fran, if I see these glasses I will let you know too and send over to you.

We have a local car boot sale each Wednesday and sometimes I've seen Waterford (Edinburgh, Galway) crystal for sale.

Not to hijack the conversation, but is going to Waterford to purchase crystal anything special? I know the most Waterford crystal is made in Belgium and elsewhere.

Bryan, why are you so dismissive? The OP wants to replace a broken glass from a set that is special to them.

Just because you don't consider it special doesn't mean it isn't special to the OP.

Bean, my apologies for coming across cold and dismissive. That was not my intention. I was seriously asking if the Waterford Crystal factory in Waterford is a tourist attraction/worth going to? I know it isn't the main factory today, but seriously inquiring. No disrespect OP.

Bryan, I personally prefer Dingle Crystal.

Its made by a former Waterford Master Cutter and the "old" traditional cuts are still there http://www.dinglecrystal.ie/

And if you want glass thats not cut glass but very different and also less expensive but very beautiful then check out Terence McSweeney of Kerry Crafted Glass http://www.irishkerryglass.com/
