Owner description: Originally founded by George and William Penrose in 1783, Waterford crystal is world-renowned for quality and beauty. Have you seen someone blow molten crystal into a vase? Check out the factory tour. Visitors are guided through the factory to see experienced craftsmen at work, creating new crystal pieces. The factory is open to tours, contact the company for details.

Our tour guide was very pleasant and helpful and the tour of the factory was good, but the craftsmen weren't very helpful if you asked them anything...

Really enjoyed our trip to the Waterford Crystal factory, definitely left with a new found appreciation for the work the goes into every piece. Yes it is expensive, but now we know why. In saying that, we did purchase 4 champagne flutes for 40 euros. Loved the factory tour, well worth the money. We were impressed by the staff and the time and attention being paid to the job they obviously enjoyed. Also very happy to answer our questions, would highly recommend.

Loved it but was way too pricey to buy anything. Nice to see what 40,000 euros can buy you! A must for all visitors to the area!
