Connemara Celtic Crystal is situated in the Irish language speaking region of the Connemara Gaeltacht in the village of Moycullen in County Galway.
Just 12km from the city of Galway, this producer of fine crystal is located on the site of the old railway station, which formed part of the famous Clifden line. The family run business has been pioneering the incorporation of Celtic designs and Gaelic motifs on its ornate, exquisitely crafted Irish crystal for over 35 years.
Today, this traditional Irish craft is continued by the company’s talented and creative team of young Irish artisans, who reproduce symbols of Ireland’s proud culture and heritage on crystal pieces.
Visitors to the factory are invited to join a personally conducted tour of the showroom, which includes an informative and entertaining talk on the historical and cultural background of the uniquely crafted designs, such as the Claddagh Ring, the Brian Boru Harp and the Tara Brooch. This is followed by a demonstration of the art of glass cutting, where visitors can witness the creation of a unique piece of crystal by the master craftsmen.
The visitor centre also features a refreshment area and a large Irish gift and craft store that carries a large range of premier Irish brands. A sizable parking area for cars and coaches is also provided.
