Welcome to the Dingle Crystal Factory, where tradition meets craftsmanship in the heart of the scenic Dingle Peninsula. Embark on a 45-minute immersive tour that takes you through the fascinating world of hand-cut crystal inspired by the beauty of this picturesque landscape.


As you step into our studio, you'll be greeted by one of our passionate team members who will guide you through our eight unique designs, each intricately crafted to capture the essence of the Dingle Peninsula. Learn about the inspiration behind these designs and how they reflect the rich history and natural beauty of the area.


Discover the compelling story of our Master craftsman, Sean, who made the bold decision in the late 1980’s  to leave Waterford Crystal and establish Dingle Crystal with his family. Uncover the reasons behind this move and the commitment to preserving the traditional art of hand-cutting crystal, making us one of the last remaining crystal studios in Ireland dedicated to this craft.


Step into our workshop, where Sean or one of our skilled cutters will demonstrate the meticulous process of creating a piece of crystal by hand. Witness the precision and expertise that goes into every cut, highlighting the dedication to preserving the heritage of crystal craftsmanship.


Dingle Crystal is not just a business; it's a family affair. Meet Sean's children, who actively contribute to the artistry, and get to know the 12 passionate individuals who form our dedicated team. Be sure to say hello to Harley, our factory dog, who, despite the sparkling crystals around, manages to steal the show with his irresistible charm.


Whether you're an art enthusiast, history buff, or simply appreciate the beauty of handmade craftsmanship, our factory tour promises an engaging and memorable experience. Allow time for questions, browsing our exquisite collection, and perhaps taking home a piece of Dingle Crystal to cherish. Join us in celebrating 25 years of tradition, family, and the enduring magic of hand-cut crystal

All of our crystalware is designed, cut and polished by hand, using traditional techniques. With every step of the production process being carried out in Ireland, Dingle Crystal is a true embodiment of Irish craft.
