Irish Crystal is famous for its quality, craftsmanship and distinctive appearance, with the market leader, Waterford Crystal, a household name pretty much the world over. But to assume this was the only type of quality glass produced in Ireland would be a mistake.
There are thriving workshops and small factories all over the country producing very beautiful modern designs, some well known, others less so but all worth seeking out if you intend to buy glass in Ireland.
Most of today’s crystal makers were established in the last 60 years, but the history of glass making in Ireland is much older than that. There is evidence of glass work in Ireland dating back as far as the Celtic period, though mostly it was jewellery and beads that were made at that time.
