A well set out museum, showing how craftsmen used to work and what life was like many years ago. Then browse the local jewellery shops nearby.

Excellent factory tour. Worth booking in advance. Made so interesting by our tour Guide BRENDAN. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Will recommend to family and friends. Very reasonably priced....worth getting ART PASS. In which case it is free.

Not knowing what to expect, I found it interesting but not inspiring. Good to see the working conditions of a jewellery maker but no real jewellery on display. Knowledgeable staff.

We were shown around by Brendan, our volunteer guide who was extremely knowledgeable and amusing, making this visit memorable and one which I would highly recommend.

The exhibits of the museum are very poor and we were very disappointed. Especially you can learn the process to make jewellery.
