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.

The warmest of welcomes from a father and daughter team, who loved to chat and adored our dog. It’s our second visit here having such a positive experience last time we came. The father started his glassmaking as a late career switch to doing something he loved doing. Beautiful colourful glass pieces on sale (made in the back room which is visible through a hatch). We bought presents for friends here. This shop enhances the town of Clifden. Definitely visit if you want to come away uplifted.

Beautiful shop filled with the most beautiful glass items. You won't leave without buying something. Ben and his family are most helpful and will do all they can to help you find ( or create ) your special piece. Well worth a visit.

This review is long overdue, but our experience with Connemara Blue was SO AMAZING that I had to come back nearly 3 years later to say something about it.
My husband and I were on our honeymoon, looking for something to do in Connemara on one of our “unplanned” days. I came across Connemara Blue on Trip Advisor, and had always wanted to work with glass. The prices for an hour-long glass workshop, and the promise of a memorable, hand-crafted keepsake to take home were all too tempting; and I promptly booked the session.
After a lovely scenic drive into town, Andrew and I walked into the colorful glass shop with hopes running high, and were warmly greeted by Ben Crow, whose witty humor and amiable personality made our session all the more enjoyable. He expertly explained the techniques behind his craft, and guided us as we chose our colors of glass and constructed our pieces. We went back the next day to pick up our pieces and were BLOWN AWAY by the beautifully changed shapes and colors that had come from the tiny shards we had pieces together the day before. Each piece was carefully packaged for safe shipping, survived the long flight back to the U.S., and are now hanging in our living room window as lovely reminders of our amazing time on the magical Emerald Isle.

If you ever have the chance to take a glass workshop with the folks at Connemara Blue, you’re in for a treat. My husband and I recently took one and made colorful suncatchers of our own design/choice. Ben and his talented staff guided us through every step of the process and were wonderful instructors (and extremely patient with novices).
We were so pleased with our finished products, and so happy that we decided to do this workshop. If your schedule permits, we would definitely recommend visiting Connemara Blue.

This is a great holiday activity. There was a friendly and enthusiastic atmosphere, and we were made to feel very welcome and part of the family. As total beginners we both finished a piece of artwork made from fusing glass under the excellent tutelage of Wendy, who was a talented and inspiring teacher who took us through each procedure stage by stage. Neither of us had worked with glass before, but with Wendy's guidance we both created a piece of glass that we were thrilled with, and will treasure as memories of our holiday in Connemara. We would highly recommend these glass workshops, and the shop itself is a great inspiration. Go to it!

Cliftden is a marvelous little town in the heart on Connemara.
Being a fellow fuser it was lovely to see such a successful and thriving
shop right downtown (you cannot miss this place, bright pink building).
While I was there the owner took us back to his work area where he had
been in the middle of teaching a class. Everyone looked so happy, I wish
we could have stayed to play with the glass in his shop. Next time :)
