My wife and family along with many of her brothers ans sisters and their families joined us in a 10 tour of Ireland. This was one of the few places that my wife stated we MUST visit. It is well worth the time and expense if you love Waterford crystal. The "factory" tour was a very nice experience. Even though many of the crystal pieces are now machine cut based on templates that are designed by the craftsmen it was still very interesting to see the process in place. However, what was really nice was to see the individual and unique pieces that are done. For example, both my son and daughter had the privilege to hold a smaller version of the United States college Football Bowl trophy that is designed and cut by Waterford. To be able to take photos of the various pieces is truly an experience well worth the time. But why was it my most expensive? Because Waterford, like all other tours, ends the tour in the showroom of their product. In this case, my wife saw a piece that was just cut this year by Waterford. Realizing how many years she has put up with me in our marriage I felt lucky to be able to give her a rememberance of our time at Waterford. Plus my Christmas shopping is conveniently done already. :).
