  • The Claddagh ring takes its name from an old fishing village, in Galway Bay and now incorporated into the city centre. It's an antique engagement ring, composed of two hands holding a heart surmounted by a Crown. The hands represent friendship, the Crown loyalty and love heart. Walking through the Centre of the lively Galway, Quay street, there's the jewelry of Thomas Dillon, the oldest in Ireland, founded in 1750 and within which there is a small museum set up in a back room, dedicated to vintage jewelry. Through the vision of jewelry, photos and papers you may have a vision of ancient Galway, later, if you want, you can shop in the store. The oldest rings, true masterpieces, are on display at the National museum of Ireland in Dublin and at the "d" London Victoria Albert museum. Interesting to see.

  • The Museum presents a video about the history of the Claddagh ring. It was interesting to know the origin, but the intention is to sell the rings there exposed. Curious, worth the visit.
