Wedding rings
Feb 2020 • Couples
Desmond is a fantastic person and a silversmith. He made my and my husband a beautiful and unique wedding rings we all designed together. He took his precious time to do it. When we go to kilkenny we always make some time to go and visit him. Thank you so Desmond and we are looking forward to come back and get my eternity ring designed for my 5year anniversary. Thank you from all of my heart xx

Des is a gem!

Please, please go see Desmond if you are looking for a unique piece of silver jewelry. So much more rewarding to buy from a true artisan who loves his craft and enjoys sharing the details of his works with you. You will not de disappointed and you will feel good about supporting a local artisan rather than a company that mass produces pieces.

This is a man who loves his craft! He will spend the time it takes for you to select your piece of jewellery. He's a gent and I can't recommend this silversmith enough.

Awesome experience
Aug 2019 • Couples
Des helped my wife and I pick out a ring that he personally designed. He was very helpful and just the kind of place we wanted to buy from while in Ireland. The whole design center next to the Kilkenny Castle made for a lovely day. We would highly recommend a visit to see Des. Not many places like this exist today.

Excellent Workmaship

The gentleman was very friendly and helpful. I bought 2 rings here 8 yrs ago but 1 got worn down due to wearing it during renovation work. I brought it here and he was really helpful and re designed the ring with a unique pattern. He also done the second ring to match. Love the design and very reasonably priced

A wonderful craftsman and a pleasure to deal with.

I’ve bought a number of items from Des over the past few years, some for me but mostly as special - and not always very expensive - gifts for friends. He is a lovely man, skilled and honest and dependable, and his work is first class craftsmanship. There cannot be very many people who have received nothing but five star reviews, seventeen out of seventeen so far. Here’s another one!

Fantastic Shop and Even Better Businessman
Jul 2017 • Family
We recently visited Ireland and I just happened to find Desmond's shop tucked in the back corner of Castle Yard. I found something I liked (men's Celtic ring) but he didn't have the correct size on hand. I left my contact information and (no kidding) the ring arrived a couple of days after we got back to the United States. I hadn't paid a cent. Of course I've since rendered payment...but this is the way I wish business was conducted. Desmond is a first class, old world craftsman. Don't miss him on your visit to Kilkenny.

What a charming Kilkenny shop and silversmith!
Apr 2017 • Solo
After reading other reviews, I decided to wait to buy silver gifts until I got to Kilkenny and could visit Des's shop. What a find and what a charming talented silversmith! He happily will show you how his items are created, and absolutely no pressure will he put on you to purchase. I bought several gifts and a very special silver box that he decorated to my liking in a few short hours. I will certainly treasure this! His silver is all hallmarked and fairly priced with many unique designs. Located across from Kilkenny castle in the courtyard - Definitely worth a visit if you like silver!

After sales service

I bought some daisy stud earrings in 1997 and they have been favourites of mine ever since. Last year I lost one. However I still had the small card that Mr Byrne signs and gives you with your purchase and last week I rang him up to ask if he could make me a replacement. His response was amazing. He has sent me a new stud and has charged me absolutely nothing. What wonderful service!

Delightful shopping experience
Oct 2016 • Couples
Based on other reviews and sought out the shop. The silversmith, Des, was a delight. He has an array of items, both traditional and contemporary. He said that current preference is for traditional items. But we preferred the unusual contemporary items from the Kilkenny Design School. We were on the verge of purchasing a ring and he told us to explore the other stores to make sure that it was the one we wanted. We did a little alternate shopping but quickly came back an purchased it. He is a skilled craftsman and worth seeking out.
