My husband & I visited Connemara Marble with our Gate 1 Travel tour group. This is a family run business and our lady guide took us into the work area where she briefly described the various raw materials that were on display and showed us how they were cut and made into numerous products. We then strolled by the guys that were either polishing some of the marble pieces or grinding and smoothing them. Next, we went into the gift shop where everything made from marble is on display. You name it and it is made of marble! I purchased 3 of the sterling silver bracelets that have 5 different marble stones. A surprise gift for my 2 daughters and myself! Also, I purchased several of the green marble clocks...gorgeous, I might add for some of my friends back home. Finally, we ventured across the busy street with the help and guidance of our coach driver to the antique store to use the restroom and browse also. There were several rooms filled with various antiques and memorabilia. This was an excellent stop along our tour through Ireland with Gate 1 Travel. I highly recommend it.

Our coach stopped here for a comfort stop on our way back to Galway. It is a small family business making gifts from Galway marble. We had an interesting talk first in the factory and then browsed the gift shop, I was tempted to purchase a bracelet, no refreshments there, but toilet facilities are in their building opposite.

We stopped here on a bus tour. Much better than expected. Very small but very nice family and employees. Marble gifts in any price range. I got a lovely Marble & Amethyst bracelet for 15 euros.

I bought some Connemara Marble pieces when I was first in Ireland more than 40 years ago, and they are still lovely. So, when offered a chance to visit the actual "factory," I jumped at it. We got to tour a small workshop, see the many kinds of raw materials they work with, watch an informative video about marble, and they we got to shop the finished products. If you're looking for some authentic Irish souveners for folks back home, this is a great place to find them. Everything from inexpensive tie tacks and key rings to very expensive and very lovely jewelry. I picked up another sterling silver Cladaugh ring to go with my antique one, this one made with a type of amethyst being minded from the bay. Lovely people, very proud of their work and heritage.
