House Of Waterford Crystal, Waterford Reviews - Write a Review
This house of “glass” has acquired a reputation for manufacturing crystals that has few equals. Apparently this Waterford establishment has long since ceased to be a commercial factory but has retained all the charm associated with crystal manufacturing. The museum is an eye opener and one can go through the history of Waterford Crystal. There is a small manufacturing premises but that’s more for exhibition rather than large commercial intentions. As we were part of a large 40 plus group of travellers with Trafalgar, the guided tour that followed was very enriching and exciting. Look at the photo and check out the intricacy in the gramophone made of crystal. The staff is (or was anyway when we visited in June 2017) cheerful and guide you to making the best purchases. They are quick to explain about the different pieces of crystals on display and generally you will want to spend more time (and probably money!) than you had earlier bargained. So people, loosen your purse strings and enjoy the visit to Waterford Crystal.
Very well done tour. Our guide was a great speaker and moved the tour along. It was great to see the crystal handcrafted close up. I can now understand with all the time put into each piece why they are priced accordingly. I did some comparison pricing and the showroom at the end of the tour does have good pricing. Just remember if you are not in the EU to be keeping track of the VAT tax so you can get the tax back at the airport when you leave.
Fantastic tour, you really get a sense of the craftsmanship that goes into the crystal, as well how crystal is made and what goes into it. The tour is through a working factory, so you get to see day-to-day operations. In fact, we were there while one apprentice was taking her exams. You get to hold several amazing crystal pieces, as well as pieces in various stages of construction. All-in-all a wonderful experience!
Great to see up close the craftsmanship. Guide was great but not over bearing. Can now see why Waterford glass is expensive. Take the tour!
A thousand thanks to the people here. We showed up 3 minutes after 4 and missed the last tour, but they let us run in and join the last one and pay at the end. Their kindness and willingness to let us in saved our trip to waterford and made my mother's birthday complete. The facility is great and the tour is very informative. I loved the no wall kind of tour they run. You can ask the craftsman questions if you want and they showed us stuff hidden away and stuff they were proud of. The store at the facility is beyond description. You simply have to go.
