We were recently in Kilkenny and I saw a gorgeous vase in a shop window. It looked heavy and I didn't want to carry it home. My husband contacted Kilkenny Crystal and had it shipped in time for Christmas. It is the most beautiful vase I own!! My husband said that the owner was lovely to deal with, I would definitely recommend purchasing this crystal artwork!

Kilkenny crystal produces beautifully hand crafted crystal that will be passed on for generations. My mother purchased our families first Kilkenny crystal close to 50 years ago, and our family has continued to collect this beautiful crystal over the years! Richard, the owner, gave us a personal tour of the production facility, and explained the very detailed process in producing this high grade crystal. While visiting in May, 2019, we purchased additional crystal for my nephews wedding, and Richard, as always, assisted us through the entire process to assure that our gift arrived in the US in a safe and timely manner. Richard is so committed to providing outstanding customer service with an added personal touch. We were fortunate enough to meet Richards father many years ago, who was the founder of the company, and Richard has continued the tradition of excellence started by his father! We cant say enough about this business, the quality of its products, and the outstanding customer service which is always provided.

We were heading out of Kilkenny for Cork when we saw the road-side sign advertising the Kilkenny Crystal Factory Shop. We decided to check it out, half expecting there to be queues of tour buses and throngs of people. But no! There was no-one else there. Instead, we were met at the door by a friendly dog and once inside were greeted by a very friendly and most informative member of the Clancy family. He gave us a guided tour of their workshop, changing the way we'll think about crystal forever. It was a lovely discovery. We bought a beautiful bowl and headed on to Cork with very fond memories of this experience. Thank you!

Richard, one of the owners went above and beyond to make sure that my package arrived to me in the United States before Christmas and he gave me information about the Claddagh as I was so intrigued w this design. And, the crystal pieces are just so beautiful and wonderful additions to my home. Have received so many compliments already. I’m glad I stopped in on my way from Kilkenny Castle!

Beautifully crafted, hand engraved crystal. Richard the owner showed us around and shared his vast knowledge. A shop in Kinsale displayed a vast array of their gorgeous items. They also sell online and ship to all destinations.
