In preparing our trip itinerary for Ireland, I searched on TripAdvisor for an original Waterford craftsman (or group) who had made a success of producing their own true Irish crystal following Waterford's decision to source standard production off-shore. We decided to put Dingle on our list and visit the highly-reviewed Dingle Crystal. Bingo!! Bulls-eye!! The store is filled with exquisite... More

We stopped in to see this beautiful crystal, having been told about it from some other visitors, and it was even better close up. A friendly family business that uses old method of cutting deeper to make crystal sparkle even more than what the bigger factory is using these days. What a lucky find. A true gem of Ireland.

This was the #1 place on my list to see while in Dingle and it did not disappoint. The Crystal is amazing and beautiful and you can tell that Master Craftsman Sean Daly definitely puts his heart and talent in to each piece. It was hard for me to choose which beautiful piece to buy, but his very helpful son... More

We went to the shop in Dingle and were delighted by the story and the the quality of the crystal. While purchasing some gifts, Adam (Sean's son) was so helpful, knowledgeable, and just a delight. We ask about visiting the shop for a tour, and he said unfortunately Sean would not be in until later that day. Disappointed we continued... More

Years ago, I began collecting Waterford Crystal. Beautiful, hand blown, signed pieces were the norm. Then Waterford fell apart, and I stopped buying it. Thank heavens for master cutter Sean Daly, and the rebirth of gorgeous, carefully blown and hand etched crystal at Dingle Crystal in the old Waterfor Tradition. I love it, I will go back and I will... More

Stopped by the store, and fell in love with the crystal. I only bought two pieces, and wished I had bought more! Definitely, my favorite scotch/whiskey glasses, and will buy more on-line, for special occasions.

Enjoy crystal hand cut by Sean Daley (former Waterford Crystal craftsman). He has 6 patterns with a full crystal service of each. The crystal is deeply cut and heavy to lift. Beautiful shop and exceptionally made pieces. Definitely worth a stop! He will mail to US for a reasonable shipping fee. Pieces are made to order so you may have... More
