Stunning jewellers, a must see!
Jun 2021 • Couples
A lovely jewellers with unique, beautifully handcrafted pieces. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I chose a stunning Celtic inspired necklace and couldn’t be happier with it. It will always remind me of an amazing few days in Dingle. Would highly recommend a visit, I will definitely be back!

High quality exquisite custom made Celtic jewelry
May 2021 • Business
I would like to take a moment to thank John Weldon for the excellent customer service and jewelry. John Weldon Jewellers has stunning designs of high quality and craftsmanship. I love my necklace and it truly exceeds the beauty seen within the picture. I also bought a beautiful custom gents Celtics overlay ring for my husband. To my delight it too exceeded the beauty seen in the picture. I bought this ring for my husband for Father's Day, I cannot wait to give it to him. The timeline was a little tight (my own fault) shipping over to Canada and I was worried it wouldn't be in. I sent John a message asking if it was possible to have it in just before June 20th. He was fast in his response and went out of his way to ensure it arrived in more than enough time. I am impressed with both his work and customer service skills. I honestly look forward to future purchases from his collections.
Thank you so much from one happy client.

Never Fails!
Mar 2020
We always, and I mean always, stop in at John Weldon's when we visit Dingle. Why you might ask? Well, if you are looking for unique pieces of jewelry, then Weldon's is a must. He has some really unique, exquisite pieces in the shop that he never fails to create. My wife, and some of our friends we have brought pieces back for, are stopped and asked where they got a specific item. "Oh, this is a John Weldon creation" to which they hear, WOW, that is something else. Shopping here is quite an experience for as unique and beautiful the pieces the staff at Weldon's is simply terrific. They know their product and somehow they have a knack to know just what their customer wants and are extremely helpful in assisting their customer to find that perfect piece. Go, you will not be disappointed and you can treat yourself to something special just for you or a friend.

Your relationship doesn't end when you leave the shop
Apr 2019
Are you like me? I enjoy the idea of a quality souvenir, but my budget means I am not always ready to lay down a lot of cash when traveling. John Weldon's shop carries a lot of high quality, inexpensive items. But we found a very special ring that cost much more than we were prepared to spend at this point in our trip.

Dear Clodagh put absolutely no pressure on us, though she could easily see that my wife really loved the ring. It would not have been difficult for Clodagh to lean on me a bit to make Kim happy, but she wanted us both to be absolutely comfortable with our decision.

So, instead of plunking down a sizable sum right then, we took her business card and waited until the right time. I wrote her directly months after returning to the US (the Trip Advisor WHEN DID YOU VISIT prompt wouldn't let me select the actual date over a year ago), and Clodagh fixed me up with a custom-sized ring at an incredible price. The ring reached us safely and fit perfectly.

Clodagh's communication was friendly and helpful throughout the process; I feel like I was doing business with a personal friend the whole time. I'll definitely be doing more online business with these wonderful people.

Best Little Jewelry shop
Sep 2019 • Family
We went in just to browse but quickly fell in love with several unique pieces. This was by far the nicest store we had been in since we arrived in Ireland. Prices are reasonable and the sales lady was fabulous. Glad they have an online store or I would have gone broke 😉

True Craftmanship
Mar 2019 • Couples
I've reviewed John Weldon's before and I will continue to do so as long as I keep going to Dingle and John continues to produce unique, exquisite pieces. A true craftsman and a credit to his profession. His pieces cannot be matched. He captures the soul of the Dingle peninsula and reflects it in his various pieces. So, if you are looking for that unique piece that people will praise and want and your in Dingle, treat yourself, stop in and select. The staff is very professional and friendly and can assist in finding that piece that is you.

Jul 2018 • Friends
Friends, and myself, were looking to purchase jewelry and John Weldon Jewellers was recommended to us. We were not disappointed! There were so many lovely pieces, including many custom designs that you won't find anywhere else. The service was very attentive and helpful. All three of us bought beautiful necklaces, and I also bought a delicate, gold ring. They sized it in an hour, and it's so perfect, you can't even tell. I've worn it every day since. Recommend this shop without reservation.

Incredible Service
Jun 2018 • Family
While visiting Dingle, I purchased a beautiful necklace from John Weldon Jewelers.. A few days later, while we were in Cork, I had a minor problem with the necklace. (The problem was in the design- not the fault of the jewelry store.) I called the shop and was asked to mail the necklace back to the jewelers and where they would repair the issue. I did so with some trepidation. I should not have worried in the least! Mr. Weldon sent me an email upon receipt of the item and within ten days of my putting it in the mail, I received a replacement- all the way back at my home in the USA! Mr. Weldon knew that I would probably never return to Ireland yet he gave me service and consideration usually reserved for highly-favored customers. If you are visiting Ireland and want a keepsake, I strongly urge you to visit John Weldon Jewelers. You will have a wide selection from which to choose and you can rest assured that you are dealing with a reputable company.

Nice shop!
May 2018 • Couples
having looked at the stores website before my trip, I knew what I wanted. I couldn't find the items, but the shop clerk helped me out. It seems most of his shop displays other jewelry, and only one display case was dedicated to his very original, hand made pieces. I found what I was searching for, at prices a little below the other jewelry in the shop. I secured three beautifully made hand crafted Ireland themed necklaces for my girls back home. I was very happy with my purchases, would go there again, and highly recommend the shop to everyone. Just be sure to ask to see Mr. Weldon' s creations!

Thank you so much for all the compliments about our original designs and glad you looked at the website and found the items you were looking for. We just would like to rectify what it looks like a misunderstanding, maybe one of our staff pointed that all the jewellery in the showcase was our own design and what it meant was that every single piece in that showcase in ours but also in the other showcases there is a considerable amount of our original pieces just they are mixed with other designs by other Irish jewellers, they are displayed more by theme like all the Celtic crosses are together or all the rings are together and so on. We also normally explain that everything that is ours is in a box that says "Handcrafted" by John Weldon and the other pieces they are in a box that says John Weldon Jewellers as is the name of the shop, we apologies this was not explain to you, and we really appreciate you favourite our creations.

Made with care
Apr 2018 • Couples
We were window shopping on our short visit to Dingle and decided to walk in. I was looking for a white gold claddagh ring for myself that had some weight to it but was reasonably priced. A lot of the other stores had such things but were very thin and flat. This was the first store that really had a ring with substance. Also it was very nice to see John Weldon himself walk out of the side room where he was crafting more jewelry. I found a ring I liked a lot but with only being half was through our 11 day honeymoon I didn’t want to spend a few hundred euros just yet. The sales woman was so nice when I told her that and didn’t push or try to persuade me. She gave me a card and said they do international shipping, smiled and thanked us for spending some of our time in the shop. She was extremely friendly.

Thank you for your review and to mention the substance and reasonable price of the ring that we can offer as most of the jewellery is made in the shop. We have a very successful website also because many customers buy online once they go back from their holiday or come back to us to buy more. Glad you remembered our jewellery and our shop.
