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.

Kinsale is a lovely little town and is lucky enough to have its own family-owned hand-cut crystal shop. The glass is hand blown in another Irish town but the cutting is done in Kinsale. The quality is excellent and the prices are very affordable. The staff is _very_ friendly and definitely not overly pushy about buying something. I think they're just happy to chat.

We bought a 'Harmony Collection' decanter and had it shipped back to the United States-- shipping was reasonable. We asked that they not ship for 10 days as we didn't want it to arrive while we were still in Ireland, and they were happy to oblige.

An hour later we were down the street a bit at a woolens shop and my wife liked a small light wool blanket. Not wanting to carry it with us and not wanting to pay another shipping fee, we walked back across the street to Kinsale Crystal and asked if they would ship it with the decanter. They of course agreed and, so, we got the wool blanket.

The decanter, in bubble wrap and then wrapped in the wool blanket, arrived undamaged a week after we got home.

I expect to buy myself a couple Harmony whiskey tumblers for Christmas.

This simply stunning crystal is cut here in Kinsale by master craftsmen. The owner apprenticed with Waterford crystal and this shop and company is a family affair. Fun fact — he is also the brother of the man behind Dingle crystal, which is also stunning. I have a beautiful piece of each brother’s work coming home to me and I am thrilled, both with the pieces and the fact that each fabulous shop/showroom is part of the same family.
Your pieces will be hand signed which makes them even more special. If you’re in Kinsale do make a point of stopping in.

Really interesting variety of hand cut crystal, including scotch tasters and many other glasses and carafes, all very reasonably priced and shipping is cheap.

We stopped in to look for some on the rocks glasses and were thrilled to see the had glasses with varying rim thicknesses to chose from. They also deep cut their crystal so it has a very nice feel to it. After we were told all about the process of making the glasses we purchased two and they wrapped really well so we could bring them home in our carry ones. They made it with no problem and have been used several times so far!

LOVE Kinsale Crystal. After a chat on the phone which is a delightful way to place an order when you are in lockdown, some beautiful tumblers arrived this morning. They were very carefully packed which was a relief as some things just don't make the distance to Australia. Superb quality ... we will continue to build up our collection.

We have bought several pieces from Kinsale Crystal both in the Village and online. ALWAYS reliable and we get exactly what we want. One piece arrived broken and they quickly and happily sent a replacement. Will definately keep buyng this QUALITY product. Thanks to the Daley Team for continuing the Family reputation - a typical Irish traditional experience.

Went to Kinsale crystal heard the story about how theirs is the way it use to be, had some shipped home it came on time all prefect. We then went to Waterford and saw the difference, Waterford is not what it once was. We ordered some for Christmas and again it came prefect. Couldn’t be happier, awesome product the martini glasses are huge and impressive

Love to visit Kinsale but can’t get used to the Irish way of shopping. Have waited on many occasions for Cities to open, Singapore for example doesn’t get going until 11 am and San Francisco 10 ish,but Kinsale Crystal is anyone’s guess. On both occasions we have visited the shop to make a purchase it has been a question of hovvering until someone turns up to open up. I hate to say it but a very unEnglish way of doing business. But the goods are lovely and worth the wait.

My wife and I only had two days left on our trip and we were having breakfast before we headed to Dublin. I had yet to find a gift for my mother and really wanted to get her something of and Irish gift. I did a quick google search of gifts from Kinsale and Kinsale Crystal was listed. The shop was walking distance from our hotel and we walked over just before they opened. We gave a knock on the door and were greeted by one of the shop owners who welcomed us in and showed us around and answered all our questions with knowledge and beamed with pride when he told us the story of how the shop came to be. What made the gift even more special was that my parents also had a small shop in our hometown where people would stop in and visit and although not at the same level some were visitors from around the globe and some still call and ask my mother for items to be shipped to them.
The shop is filled with beautiful pieces and after a short time we decided on a beautiful piece. In a nod to my my father, who used to take pictures of the various customers who would stop in at their shop and put the picture the wall, I asked the shop owner if he would pose with my wife and the chosen crystal to put it in with the gift. Which he did without hesitation. A funny note, while our purchase was being packaged my wife noticed a package on the counter waiting to be shipped to the US, the address was about a mile from our house.
The beautiful crystal, the family story, the welcoming feeling all made it more than just a piece of crystal.
