Overview

Founded in 1969 by Patrick Clancy Kilkenny Crystal is Ireland's oldest Family-owned Crystal Studio Workshop. Our use of traditional techniques means that our crystal is likened to antique quality. Each piece is deeply cut by hand and then polished with care to retain a fine finish. We create many original designs and unusual pieces and due to the limited number of pieces produced each year many items become valuable collectors items. Our product range and full history of Kilkenny Crystal can be found on our web site.

U.S. ladies looking for true Irish crystal found it in Kilkenny Crystal. The quality is as good as Waterford and made locally.

Got some cute stuff but don't see why it got 5 stars. If you are looking for crystal wine glasses or pitchers then great! Not the best representation of the shopping in Kilkenny. Go to the Design Center, too!More
