Celtic Crystal is located in the village of Moycullen, only 12 km from Galway city and situated in the heart of the Connemara Gaeltacht (an Irish language speaking area). Celtic Crystal is located on the site of the ‘old railway station’ which formed part of the famous Clifden line. Celtic Crystal was founded in 1972. This family-run business has been pioneering the incorporation of Celtic Designs and Gaelic Motifs into its ornate Irish Crystal and it is proud to claim leadership in this field.
Visitors to the factory are invited to join in a personally conducted tour of the Showroom which includes an informative and entertaining talk on the Historical and Cultural background of the uniquely crafted designs, such as the “Claddagh Ring”, Celtic designs, the “Brian Boru Harp” , and the “Tara Brooch” will be given. This will be followed by a demonstration of all that is best in the Art of Glass Cutting where visitors can witness the creation of a unique piece of crystal by a master craftsman.
The Visitor Centre also features a refreshment area and a large Irish gift & craft store which carries a large range of premier Irish brands. A large parking area for cars and coaches is also provided.
Today, this tradition is continued by our talented and creative young Irish crafts people, reproducing the culture and history of Ireland by crafting the unique and intricate designs that are synonymous with Ireland’s Celtic heritage on our exquisite crystal pieces.
