    The Irish Handmade Glass Company

    Irish Handmade Glass History After the closure of the Waterford Crystal factories in Ireland in 2009, a team of master craftsmen came together & formed The Irish Handmade Glass Company. Located in the Kite Design Studios on Henrietta Street, in the heart of The Viking Triangle in Waterford City, we aim to keep our centuries old craft & tradition alive. We welcome visitors to our studio to watch in amazement as we create works of art before your very eyes. Our designs are a breath of fresh & are surprisingly affordable. Our use of colour & cutting makes every piece unique & a gift that will be treasured for ever.   Our fathers were Master Craftsmen at Waterford Crystal & naturally we all followed in their footsteps. We became apprentices to the great masters of glassblowing & cutting at the tender ages of 15 years. Every day we learned more & more, until after 8 years we too, like our fathers, became masters of our craft.   Producing 100% mouth blown & hand cut crystal, we take pride in every piece we produce. Specialising in coloured hand cut crystal we have quickly become one of Irelands leading crystal manufacturers. Please Read more [...]

The Pure Drop Several music & folklore collectors visited Doolin on different occasions to record local tunes, songs and stories. Seamus Delargy came as early as the 1920s and he was followed by three of the most famous Irish Folklore Collectors: Seamus Ennis, Ciarán MacMathuna and Breandan Breatnach. O’Connor’s Pub hosted many of these recording sessions in the 40s and 50s which were made for archive purposes but also for radio broadcasting. And thus, following the broadcast of these recordings, Doolin was literally put on the map as a hot spot for traditional music, a place where you could experience “the Pure Drop”. When Gus & Doll O’Connor took over pub in 1956, there weren’t many visitors Read more [...]
