Wonderful education

Went to Kinsale crystal heard the story about how theirs is the way it use to be, had some shipped home it came on time all prefect. We then went to Waterford and saw the difference, Waterford is not what it once was. We ordered some for Christmas and again it came prefect. Couldn’t be happier, awesome product the martini glasses are huge and impressive

Love Kinsale Crystal
Oct 2019
Love to visit Kinsale but can’t get used to the Irish way of shopping. Have waited on many occasions for Cities to open, Singapore for example doesn’t get going until 11 am and San Francisco 10 ish,but Kinsale Crystal is anyone’s guess. On both occasions we have visited the shop to make a purchase it has been a question of hovvering until someone turns up to open up. I hate to say it but a very unEnglish way of doing business. But the goods are lovely and worth the wait.

Pride in craftsmanship and family
Nov 2019
My wife and I only had two days left on our trip and we were having breakfast before we headed to Dublin. I had yet to find a gift for my mother and really wanted to get her something of and Irish gift. I did a quick google search of gifts from Kinsale and Kinsale Crystal was listed. The shop was walking distance from our hotel and we walked over just before they opened. We gave a knock on the door and were greeted by one of the shop owners who welcomed us in and showed us around and answered all our questions with knowledge and beamed with pride when he told us the story of how the shop came to be. What made the gift even more special was that my parents also had a small shop in our hometown where people would stop in and visit and although not at the same level some were visitors from around the globe and some still call and ask my mother for items to be shipped to them. The shop is filled with beautiful pieces and after a short time we decided on a beautiful piece. In a nod to my my father, who used to take pictures of the various customers who would stop in at their shop and put the picture the wall, I asked the shop owner if he would pose with my wife and the chosen crystal to put it in with the gift. Which he did without hesitation. A funny note, while our purchase was being packaged my wife noticed a package on the counter waiting to be shipped to the US, the address was about a mile from our house. The beautiful crystal, the family story, the welcoming feeling all made it more than just a piece of crystal.

Best in Ireland
Sep 2019
We happened upon this shop while walking around Kinsale and went in just out of curiosity as we had planned to go to a Waterford Crystal shop. We were greeted warmly by Anna, who explained their product & its background. We were very impressed by the quality and placed an order to be shipped back to the USA. When we received the product it was as good as we expected. We have since ordered more items and would highly recommend their crystal to anyone who wants quality crystal.

Beautiful Craftmanship
May 2018 • Couples
I purchased one piece at the store and another via their website after I returned to the US. Highly recommended and you have the assurance you are receiving a handmade piece and not something made outside of Ireland.

A cut above
Nov 2018
A lovely family owned business with quality products. The family matriarch was on hand to educate, promote and demonstrate the superior quality of deep cut crystal that is their family hallmark. Walking in, and seeing the brilliant, glittering crystal...watching their son actually use the machine to cut the crystal, made for a memorable visit to Kinsale. Kinsale Crystal is definitely a cut above other crystal products !

Beautiful crystal!
Nov 2018 • Couples
We visited Kinsale Crystal and saw a demonstration of glass cutting. The cuts are deep and result in beautiful, sparkling crystal. The glass that is used has the maximum 33.3% lead and is heavy. This is a small family-owned shop and the owners are very friendly. They will ship for free to the U.S.

LOVE the crystal glasses we bought at Kinsale Crystal!
Sep 2017 • Couples
We happened upon the Kinsale Crystal shop on our last trip to Ireland. We bought some drink glasses, and I absolutely love them. The cuts and shine from the cuts are so beautiful. I have quite a bit of Waterford, and the Kinsale Crystal is much more beautiful. We bought the items there and carried them home--though they would have shipped them-- and I'm so glad we did.

Wonderful surprise
Jul 2018 • Couples
As an ex class cutter from many years ago, I was delighted to stumble upon this gem. Hand cut crystal is rare in these modern times, so it's wonderful to see there are a few masters at this craft.. to say the quality of Kinsale Crystal is exceptional is an understatement, was wonderful chatting to you guys, what a trip down memory lane this was for me, to see the machine and cutting wheels and reliving the whole process of creating handcut crystal, I wish you every success, and long live the craft of hand cut Crystal, hope to visit again soon.

Most beautiful crystal in Ireland
May 2017 • Couples
We ordered several items from this shop...they arrived in the states in the estimated time we were given. The pieces were even more beautiful than we remembered and we treasure them. We visited crystal shops in a few other towns in Ireland, and Kinsale was the most beautiful So glad we happened upon this little shop!
