“Great site to tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

This is a great place to tour and buy crystal. We thoroughly enjoyed the factory tour and the gift shop is great. We purchased gifts for family and friends at a very good price. Friendly staff!

“Great place to shop for Galway Crystal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We visited the show room @ Galway Crystal and found all the clerks to be very helpful.We wanted to purchase the Crystal Decatur with 4 brandy glasses. At 1st glance we decided the shipping box/w the set was too big to take on the plane, but the clerk (Ann) showed us how it could be re-packaged(all new individual packaging) to fit in our carry-on. We quickly reviewed the glasses and they were re-packaged. After we got back to the states, we noticed that we overlooked that one of the glasses had a small issue. I e-mailed Gallway Crystal explaining the problem and Ann responded after reviewing the pictures I sent, saying a replacement was being sent to me.That says a Lot about Galway Crystal and their employees. Great Showroom__ enjoy shopping!

“Good Value”

We stopped in to see the crystal and pick up a few items. This is very nice quality glass. Staff was helpful and we were able to bring home a few pieces.

“Small sales area and no tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We visited this centre thinking that there would be a tour and plenty to see in the shopping area. Disappointed as very small sales area, staff were more interested in talking to themselves about their weekend than serving the 3 customers that were in the area. Prices were no different than in the shops that sell Galway Crystal, only a few specials available. No tours to take. If you compare it to Waterford Crystal experience, it is well behind it.
