Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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.

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.

Made purchase while on vacation tour. Was in hurry as bus was getting ready to leave and I was last in line. MY MISTAKE! Purchased:bracelet (120. Euro), bottle opener(25 euro) , pendant (100 euro). I signed credit card slip (TOO QUICKLY) as young lady was chatting with me and wrapping and bagging up items. Threw the slip in my bag and I dashed back to bus. More stops and back to the hotel. Pulled my charge out and found I was charged over 300 euro AND no itemized receipt in my bag. Called credit card company that night while in Ireland. 6 weeks later I'm saddled with almost $140. US dollars THAT I DID NOT SPEND. CONNEMARA MARBLE sent only a copy of the same charge slip I have. No itemized receipt. My word against theirs. Again, my mistake for getting caught up in the moment. BAD BUSINESS. BUYER BEWARE.

I didn’t know what to expect here. It turned out to be an amazing place! The presentation on the different types of marble was fascinating. It was awesome to be able to see them all right there in one place. Staff was so knowledgeable. It was also very interesting to see the jewelry being made. The hardest part of the visit was picking out what I wanted. So many beautiful things! The history and the pictures were also wonderful .You could spend a very long time here.

Went with a tour group. It was an interesting five minute lecture on local marble. I saw people on trip advisor complaining about the prices??! It’s very reasonable. Necklaces for 25€. Bought a cute ring for55€. The staff members were friendly. The young man who spoke with us seemed very passionate about his craft.

We stopped here on a tour. I thought we were visiting the mine area, so I was a bit surprised. The gentleman who told us about the marble was very informative and had an interesting presentation. I purchased a few souvenirs,but they were available other places on the island. Nothing bad, but not certain I would stop again.

We stopped at Connemara Marble as a part of our Gate 1 tour. Stops like this are often built in to stretch your legs, use the loo, and perhaps a bit of shopping. The visitor's center includes a quick informative bit on the different types of marble, a walk through the workshop, and a lovely shopping area. I was hesitant to make a jewelry purchase so early in our trip, but I'm glad I bought my marble ring as I saw nothing else like it for the rest of the week there. Restrooms are located in a neat little historic building across the busy highway and they provide help to assist navigating the traffic. Definitely worth a visit if you are passing through the area.

Our tour director took us to this little shop and had he not, I doubt we would have come across it! It was a lovely little place where we learned a bit about the different marbles in Ireland and where they come from. The best was seeing all the hand made goods and jewelry with a nice selection of things to bring home as gifts!
