Originally my knowledge was that Waterford Crystal had closed down. Indeed the original factory remains closed. Since then the Waterford business community/council reopened at a new downtown, most modern facility. There is a production line for many items in Waterford, but we were told much Waterford product is produced in Europe - albeit still to Waterford's exacting standards.
The tour is well worth while, expecially to watch selected craftsmen at work producing trophies and other items. The showroom has a substantial "mouth watering" display of crystal from table ware, through chandeliers and trophies.
One cannot leave without acquiring something, if only to possess a fine and reputable product(s).
