I bought a beautiful handmade Claddagh ring with a little emerald in it. I loved the services that I received in the store and it was clear that the staff really enjoyed helping you choose the perfect ring. I have wanted a new Claddagh ring for a long time but it was the perfect place to buy it from. They... More

For an original Claddagh ring, you need to go to Thomas Dillon. Their jewelry is well made and reasonably priced. I bought my first claddagh ring from them in 2010, I have returned twice since then and whenever I return they offer to polish and restore my ring. I am always very appreciative of that. It is run by some... More

I had researched where to buy a Claddagh ring and this store kept popping up. In researching the history and based on the reviews, I knew I could only go here to buy my ring. It's a simple store with great service. Walked right in and I believe the owner (as I've watched youtube videos) personally helped me find my... More

If you want to purchase a serious Claddagh ring that you can wear with pride, your first and only stop should be Thomas Dillon's. The only shop on the world that can stamp "original" in their Claddagh rings, they have a good selection and seasoned staff who are willing to help. I browsed their yellow gold, white gold, and rose... More

Now a complete jewelry store, they claim to be the "original" makers of the famous ring. Prices were quite reasonable, service was good and friendly. Nice place!

The original makers of the Claddgh ring -- and the friendliest, most helpful owners and artisans to be found. We had the best experience selecting the perfect ring. There's a Claddagh vintage assortment where they still make the rings that are stamped with the Thomas Dillon name. The shop made us feel so very welcome and treated us royally as... More

I had been looking for a Claddagh gold ring for many years and on my trip to Ireland I was so lucky to find Thomas Dillon's Shop in Galway. I can't believe my luck to happen to walk into the original shop that made the Claddagh Ring. My only disappointment was that I didn't buy the 18 Carat Gold ring.... More

Jackie was so friendly and kind, and this is where it all began. I can't remember the exact wording of the sign on the door; something like, "A fair deal...No man deserves any less nor should expect any more." I agree and feel that's what I got (besides a piece of history and beautiful gift from my from my sentimental... More

Our tour group had a day to wander in Galway and we happened upon this lovely shop. There is a nice selection of jewelry and original Claddagh rings. Our clerk was very friendly and helpful, even with three of us trying on rings. Two of us purchased rings and will treasure them as a quality keepsake from this establishment. This... More
