Crystal Cutting Demonstration in Dingle Town
Sean Daly is a master craftsman of the old school when cutting crystal was an art form passed down from generations of skilled craftsmen. He learned his trade at the famous crystal factory in Waterford and to this day he honours the traditions of the great glass company Waterford Crystal. His cuts are deep and precise and his patterns are unique and magical like the scenery that inspires him. A private demonstration is followed by a visit to his store on Dingle’s Green Street, one of the finest shopping streets in Ireland.
