Discover Jerpoint Glass Studio in Thomastown, County Kilkenny and watch as skilled glassblowers turn molten glass into internationally renowned Jerpoint pieces.

Experience Jerpoint Glass Studio, a true family business. Set up in 1979 by the Leadbetters, they passed on their skills and passion for glass to their four children who are experts in their field.

Take a trip to the glass studio where each piece is lovingly made by hand. Pop over to the viewing area and watch a glassblowing demonstration. See the skilled glassblowers perform their magic as they turn the flowing red-hot molten glass into shapes right before your eyes.

In the adjoining stone building, find the shop where the full Jerpoint collection is available to admire with special one-off pieces. Make your way upstairs to the Glass Attic Gallery and admire carefully selected work by some of Ireland’s finest craftsmen. Paintings by local artists adorn the walls, as well as beautiful lighting and elegant sculptures.
