House Of Waterford Crystal, Waterford Reviews

  • 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.

  • If you love crystal and especially Waterford Crystal, take the time to stop and grab a tour. My wife and I took a private tour - which is essentially the same as the group tours, just without the extra people - lots of room to ask questions and linger where you want. Our guide Noel was such a great gentleman. Turns out his pattern was my wife's pattern :) By the way, there is one pattern that you can ONLY get here at the factory, so if you want an item that no one else can get that haven't been there, this is the place ! We were staying in Kilkenny at the time and the drive was well worth it for a day trip. While Waterford Crystal was our main reason for going, there is a lot of other history there as well to check out. If you aren't going for the crystal, it's still worth taking a small stroll thru the shop - I'm sure you'll see something to peak your interest.

  • I visited this place this week and was very very disappointed at the news that they are reducing the manufacturer of the Colleen pattern glasses. With the excuse. Young people are not buying them any more. Colleen is the only true Waterford pattern glasses. All the rest are NOT made in Waterford therefore are NOT Waterford glass. Just a cheep and nasty moulded import sold at a great great profit as a Waterford glass which it is NOT. If it's not made in Waterford it's NOT Waterford. You might as well purchase crystal made in France. Yes I am very disappointed. As I have been collecting WATERFORD Colleen glass for over 50 years.

  • If you like crystal you have to do the Waterford tour. The tour is not very long but really interesting to see how the items are made. Made to trip down to Waterford And stay a few days to enjoy the beautfull town
