When Waterford Crystal shut down the bulk production in Ireland in 2009, thousands of master craftsmen were laid off. Sean Daly was one of them. He moved to Dingle and opened up his own shop. The hist... read more »
Visited their shop to see how they cut their crystal. Everything is hand made. Amazing patience and attention to detail. Neat to see how they make each individual cut.

When you think about visiting Ireland the first thoughts that come to mind are often green fields, pints of Guinness in pub and crystal. If you are looking to take home a piece of Irish crystal, there is no place better than Dingle Crystal. Sure it does not have the prestige of Waterford but when you buy from Dingle you know that each and every piece is hand crafted by a master who takes pride in his work. Our buying experience was a true joy as the helpful staff told us the origin of each design providing us the guidance to fine the perfect wine glass. When my wife accidently broke her prized treasure and I went online to order a replacement the staff let me know I was ordering a different replacement from the original order and guided me to the correct piece. They even rushed the order to make sure I had it before her birthday. When you buy from Dingle Crystal you are receiving a first class product with outstanding customer service from a true Irish master.
We met Sean and enjoyed hearing his history of designing and cutting crystal at Waterford and then on his own. His crystal is gorgeous; what Waterford used to be. If you're in the market for Irish crystal, skip Waterford and check out Dingle Crystal or his brother's Kinsale Crystal. We bought ours from Sean. Nothing better than enjoying a nice Scotch or Irish whiskey in beautiful crystal.
Exquisite craftsmanship! We had a difficult time deciding on the perfect pattern....we loved them all!!! Can't wait to go back to Dingle!!!
Placed an in-store order on 9/22 with a "6-8 week" shipping schedule. It is now 11+ weeks. They have not responded to email requests for information and their listed phone number rings forever with no answer or voicemail.
First met Sean seven years ago ago on my 30th wedding anniversary trip to Ireland . He is quiet and pleasant to talk (if you are patient enough to wait around for him to take a break) with and has that old world charm you cannot find in the US anymore. Duh, Ireland is the old world. :) No one can really appreciate the combination of effort and skill that is used to create one of his pieces without watching him at work. I have purchased several of his pieces over the years and those pieces showcase my living room. If I had the funds available, I would have a wall dedicated to his work Truly, craftsmen of this caliber are a very rare find these days.
