Duiske Glass Gift Shop on Graignamanagh’s High Street in County Kilkenny stocks a wide selection of traditional and modern gifts.
With four generations of family heritage in crafts, Maureen and Harry O’Shea founded Duiske Glass in 1974. Inspired by the work of the Cistercian Monks of Duiske Abbey, the largest and perhaps the finest of the 34 medieval Cistercian abbeys in Ireland, they revived the age old intaglio method of engraving glassware. Duiske’s best loved grapevine cut wine glasses, crystal and giftware are sold exclusively here.
The O’Sheas are happy to personalise glassware purchased in the shop for any occasion by engraving logos, club crests and corporate awards. Further the shop’s product range extends to many of Ireland’s distinguished designers such as Belleek Living, Tipperary Crystal, Newbridge Silverware, Aynsley, Genesis Fine Arts, Mindy Brownes Interiors and Galway Crystal.
One hour from Kilkenny city, a unique urban centre with a lively town atmosphere, the Graignamanagh area offers many popular pursuits such as meandering through the lovely Barrrow Valley and traversing nearby Brandon Hill or fishing, swimming and kayaking on the River Barrow. Maureen and Harry O’Shea are always happy to provide a warm welcome at Duiske Glass Gift Shop.
