I had a really happy experience in your shop this week. I dealt with a lovely gentleman by the name of Max who was extremely helpful, kind and pleasant. He gave great advice regarding ring size and choice, etc. Top class customer service from start to finish. I'm delighted with my claddagh ring. Thank you very much.

I was so excited to visit the store. There was a large selection of Irish jewelry, including the famous Claddagh ring. I could choose amongst silver, 8K, 14K, and 18K. The salesperson was knowledgeable and helpful. Also there was a craftsperson on site. Overall it was a very interesting experience.

It's a small shop but if you want a piece of Irish jewelry, you will find it here. I'm very happy with my ring. Very nice.

I was in the store on October 6, 2014 and ordered a yellow and emerald claddagh ring. Aideen stated that there had been a rush on "emergency engagement rings" and that I would for sure have the ring shipped to me in 2 weeks. We are now January 12, 2015 and NO RING. I have left several voice messages and emails with NO returned messages. I did manage to talk with Aideen once and she said she would get right back to me - never heard from her. After reading other comments, it looks like I'm not the only one to pay for a ring and not get it. This was to be a special anniversary gift - sooooo disappointing. NO NOT SHOP here!

This was my second trip to Galway in 18 months. I specifically went back to this store because I could not get my mind off a wedding band I found there. I ordered the ring on October 17, 2016 and STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED MY RING! I spent over $500 for two claddagh rings and the wedding band. I was PROMISED the jeweler would be making my ring the following week. It would take several weeks to receive it. After about three weeks I contacted them. I was informed there was a family death and the jeweler needed to go to the states for the funeral services. I waited. I was then told the ring would be sent and I would receive the tracking number. Never arrived. Called again and told the "box was damaged and returned to the shop. As soon as it arrives they will send it back out." I was told the ring arrived back at the shop on a weekend and they would ship it out on Monday and I would receive the tracking number. I waited. I contacted them again and this time Lucy told me they have had a business change and she would be helping me. I emailed a copy of my order and receipt. I have contacted them several more times by phone and email. Still nothing. As the travel season is beginning I decided to write this to warn other travelers not to order from them.

Called at the shop and ordered and paid for a ring for my daughter, as we were looking for a gold-plated Claddagh ring they promised they would post it on to me in England.
The ring never arrived and it is impossible to contact the shop, the phone number listed kicks straight into a voice-mail and emails are never replied to.
Not happy that a shop on the main tourist street can operate this scam but looking forward to calling in with my receipt to hear what they have to say when I next visit Galway.
Don't trust this shop to send items in the post.
Wish I had read the other reviews before giving them my money

We bought and paid for 2 claddagh engagement rings to be shipped to England as they didn't have our sizes and we wanted engraving done. We never recieved them. This ruined our engagement and are very upset. Unable to believe people can be so heartless, this has ruined our plans and cancelled our engagement party. Please do not buy from these people

I left a deposit on a wedding ring for my busband. It was to be 're- sized and shipped in the next few days. That was at the end of August. A month later and nothing except one voice email which said that I would be contacted again when the ring was ready to post. I only live up the road in Donegal. Shame on you. You are taking money under false pretence. I am embarrassed that a business is ripping of tourists in this manner. I will be taking this matter further.

I spent 5 weeks in Ireland this summer with my mom, and the whole trip was AWESOME. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Galway as well. My mom and I spent a lot of time at this shop and money also. We both ordered the Trilogy Ring with solid gold charms rather than gold-plated so they had to be "custom made" and would be shipped to my residence in the U.S. We agreed and paid for ALL of our purchases, including the ordered rings.We were SO EXCITED that we would be getting them when we got home!!! Well, we've been here for a month now, have sent e-mails to several e-mail addresses, called and posted on their FB page (more than once) with NO RESPONSE. I will be contacting the Galway Chamber of Commerce and any other organization I can think of to inform them of the fraudulent activities of this "Jewelry Supplier".

I was in the shop in person in May of 2013. They were incredibly nice and had a fabulous collection of unique designs. I paid for a ring but they didn't have my size, they kindly offered to ship it to my home in the US, Aideen offered me free shipping and said it would arrive in 4-6 weeks.

It has been a year and I have not received my ring.

I contacted them via all email addressed I've found but only ever received a response from their webmaster saying he could not help. I called and left messaged at the shop. I've tried contacting through social media. If you look at the reviews on their facebook page it seems that this is a very common issue.

They were so nice, however I definitely seem to have been scammed.

It's especially sad as I've wanted a Claddagh ring since I was a little girl and I searched long and hard for the perfect Claddagh ring from Galway. I just want my ring :(
