We went there for the glass making tour, we red in the Dublin 2017 guide that the tour was still present. Sadly the tour stop years ago, and now there is just the shop.

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 price was right

This is a lovely building even from the outside and it doesnt disappoint on the inside. Glass of all shapes and sizes are displayed, and the staff were extremely helpful, some lovely China as well, we needed a gift and we had a great selection to choose from well worth a visit.

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.

Upon arrival, we were under the impression that they were still providing tours to look at the crystal making process, but they were discontinued years ago. Despite calling themselves a "heritage centre," they have no exhibits or even placards discussing the histroy and heritage of Galway crystal. Their products are very nice, but the name is misleading because all that... More

Galway Crystal does have a very nice tour of how the glass is flown and cut. They also carry Aynsley and Belleek. There are always many things on special and the regular priced things are very good value. The real treat is the staff. They are there to help and are never in the way or try to push things... More

We had been looking for a suitable trophy when we happened to pass the building. The inside of the building is very grand however the shop looks impressive with many items on display. We bought our piece of crystal and was impressed by the sales lady who took our order. I would recommend a visit.

There is crystal everywhere and it is just gorgeous! right down to the very large crystal umbrella holder...Only thing not crystal was the wooden sailboat in the front window. Up stairs are display cases of beautiful crystal... More
