We have found that "Dingle Crystal" is not only the highest of quality crystal but it is also one of the more enjoyable shops to visit in Dingle. Sean and his sons are truly a delight to talk to about crystal, Dingle, and Ireland. I look forward to every trip and make it a point to visit the shop. Give it a try if yo are visiting Dingle, it will add to the enjoyment of the town.

Dingle Crystal is a must-see in Ireland. Sean is a master craftsman plus a pleasure to meet. We stopped in and I couldn't control myself! Started my daughter's crystal collection and bought a beautiful bowl for myself. I have a lot of future purchases from them. Be sure to stop n the pub next door!

For the fastest, most information-packed lesson on hand-cut crystal, visit Sean Daly's workshop in Dingle. With only the most basic guides marked on a bowl or glass, he creates intricate, original cut glass creations while you watch. You can't buy his work in the workshop, so visit his shop in Dingle. If he is there when you make a purchase, he will sign it for you if it isn't signed already. Remember, he does his own work (nothing shipped in from factories elsewhere) so is very busy. Don't be off-put if he isn't willing to chat endlessly!

We bought some crystal creations and took some home and had some shipped. The prices are a bit high, bit the products are well worth the expense. Unique crystal shop and we liked it much better than those other crystal tourist traps in Ireland (you should know which ones I refer to).
