nice products. We had a tour of the crystal cutting process. Harley the pup was present and a joy to see. The candles are gorgous and they ship for you to home.

Great tour and intro to crystal making. Didn’t realize it was such an art. The family business is so professional. Definitely worth a visit.

I have been bringing my tour guests and friends and family to visit Dingle Crystal, for over 15 years, and everyone always enjoys it.
It is great to be able to connect with Sean and his family, authentic Irish craftspeople.
An excellent visit

Actually visited their manufacturing location just outside of town first. Family run small business was so friendly and accommodating. Introduced to owner and watched him, over his shoulder, apply his unique skills to transform glass into a beautiful crystal design. Easily on par with Waterford, they have full line of glassware and patterns. With so many things to see in Dingle, this was will be one of our top favorite memories.

We were lucky to visit the factory to see Sean, the owner, and his team making stunning crystal pieces. Wow!
There is a shop in the town of Dingle, too, but we were able to shop the showroom at the factory. They’ll ship directly to you for just 35 euros — and that’s well worth it when you are purchasing one of a kind, stunning pieces which will become heirlooms. A fabulous one of a kind centerpiece bowl will be heading to me in just a few weeks!
This is a must see/visit. Sean trained with Waterford Crystal and his skill - and that of his team - is truly a treat to be able to see in person. It gave life to ‘hand cut Irish crystal!’

We found Sean’s operation when visiting Dingle in 2016, when his son, Adam, coordinated our demonstration at the “old” factory. That led to purchasing a few items at their shop, then a few more via the web-site over the years.

Visiting Dingle in July, 2022 stopping in both were high on our itinerary. The people at the laundry (the old factory location) were most pleasant giving us directions to the expanded factory around the corner.

Meeting the rest of the family (Sean and Adam were not in town that day): Bella (and “friend”/apprentice Jonathan), Stephen, and Shane at the factory, plus Rebecca later at the shop (where additional pieces were ordered), filled in the blanks for us with his family. Meeting and chatting with all of them made us wish we could have met Liz - as she must have been special to have raised this fine family.

Dingle, and Dingle Crystal, has become special to us. Hopefully we will be blessed to return again.

I had the pleasure of touring Ireland in April of 2022. How I missed a visit to this shop I'll never know...but somehow, I discovered their online shop! I am a crystal collectors with a large collection of vintage Waterford. Of course I was intrigued and had to purchase some Dingle pieces. All I can say is this may be the most beautiful crystal I now own! I'm hooked. It is weighty, which I love, and deeply cut. The polish and finish is second to none. Will definitely be purchasing more and WILL NOT miss stopping here next time I'm in Ireland! Thank you Sean and family.
