Your experience

Description

From the chandeliers of Westminster Abbey to the New York New Year's Eve Ball, you definitely know the work of Waterford Crystal, master craftsmen of world famous crystal glass for over 200 years. This behind-the-scenes all-access tour will show you every incredible step leading to the creation of these timeless works of art - cheers!

Starting from the "cleaning room" (no laughing in the background) you will see how glassblowers form molten crystal into vases, bowls, light bulbs and more, using only the power of their own lungs - and a little help from a 1400°C oven.

Next, you will learn how Waterford creates his individual shapes using traditional methods before the decorative team sketches his designs and cuts impossibly detailed patterns into these fragile works of art. At every stage you will witness the strict quality control systems that require nothing less than perfection

After all this incomparable craftsmanship, you may find it hard to resist the exclusive treasures in the gift shop - the perfect souvenir of a fascinating experience!
