Beautiful glasswork in a variety of styles. Really helpful people, caring and considerate. Well worth popping in! They also run classes which I may well sign up to in the future, build a trip around it!

We stopped in while visiting Clifden and we really impressed with the beautiful artwork. The glass pieces are vibrantly colored and come in many shapes and sizes. The staff is very welcoming and it is worth a stop.
