Definitely eat at the Salt Restaurant. The wraps and desserts were very good. Do some shopping and have your items shipped home.

They had a great selection of crystal and the prices were pretty good. They also shipped everything for us and they guarantee safe delivery or they will replace. The shipping and the money you get back for tax even out so shipping was basically free.

A nice selection of Galway Crystal which is every bit as nice as Waterford without the hype. Some beautiful things were on sale. Wish the lamps were wired for the US.

Stopped to use the bathroom but spent time wandering through the display room. There are a number of worthy items to purchase and for crystal, the glasses of various assortments are worth looking at. Too bad I wasn't in the market to buy because the...More

Even though this is no longer a tour, I would recommend going just to see the stunning chandelier and the shop. The staff were very helpful in getting our purchases shipped to Australia.
