sean and his fellow co workers could not have been more professional, enthusiastic and passionate about their artistry and the customers whom they serve...the love and dedication which they possess in their artwork is one which, we all as parents, hope that our children will strive for. thank you for sharing that passion with us...it is a lifelong passion that everyone should experience...

Went in to buy a personalised crystal glass for my wife and ended up getting one for my brother too.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Crystal glasses were engraved by a master cutter whilst I waited and watched.
Great experience.
Great presents.
Will do again

we loved this-it makes you understand why crystal is so expensive!! they take you through the whoel process and we actually talked to one of the craftsmen while he worked, it was very cool and well worth the money and drive, the area was nice too to walk around and grab a pint or lunch and shop

The tour was fantastic, very educational and interesting, the pieces are beautiful. Our main problem however was their insistence on putting Waterford Crystal made in Slovakia in the shop.... in order to get a piece made in Waterford, you have to ask. Staff were very friendly and overall it was a lovely trip.... the coffee shop was also very nice with some lovely things on offer.
