Not as well-known as its feted Waterford rival, Galway Crystal is just as distinctive and beautiful. At this modern visitor center, you can observe the master craftspeople at their work, from blowing the molten glass to cutting the finished product (weekdays only, although the center is open daily). However, most people just come to browse the huge factory shop, with its glittering array of crystal and other craft items, such as Belleek pottery.
