Dingle is n area famous for its rich heritage of craft and tradition, Sean took inspiration from his new home and transformed it to create a breathtaking collection of crystal giftware using Celtic themes.

Visitors to the Dingle Crystal shop on Green Street, Dingle can view a stunning array of glassware from bowls to glasses, from candlesticks to vases, be it a personalised and exclusive wedding gift, a special present or simply a luxurious souvenir of your trip to Kerry, Dingle Crystal is a treasure trove for all.

My Driftwood tour took us to Sean's workshop to see him cut crystal. He used to work for Waterford Crystal. He handcuts the crystal. We then went to his shop. The prices are high which you would expect for handcut pieces. His wife LIz helped us understand the different patterns and helped us decide which pieces would work the best for us. After seeing how the airport dealt with baggage we opted to pay 20 euros to have them ship to our house. You need plenty of time to shop and decide because if you are paying 200 euros more or less you want to make sure you love the piece you are buying. Anything you buy is something that you will pass down through your family as a memory of Ireland.

It was a pleasure to meet Sean, Adam and Liz Daley. Sean is a true artist. It took quite a while to choose what pieces we wanted. They were all beautiful. No problem shipping to USA. Well packed. All pieces are done by hand unlike Waterford. Can't say enough good things about Dingle Crystal!

My friends and I were leaving Dingle but wanted to stop in to shop for crystal. We showed up at 10 am when the website says they open but they did not show up until after 11. We ended up having only a few minutes to shop and therefore didn't buy anything. The crystal is beautiful and they ship to the US a lot.

If you want genuine Irish crystal that is hand-cut be be sure and visit the Dingle Crystal company. Sean Daley and his son, hand cut every item in the store. This is unlike the big names like Waterford, where most items are machine cut. There is a big difference between the methods and go there to see for yourself. Prices are reasonable and they ship to the US.
