A quick hello from the beautiful Dingle Peninsula!
I know it has been far too long since we last put up a post and I do hope you are all keeping well. Dingle has had a fantastic season this year. Tourism numbers were up and it felt like there was a different festival or event happening every week here in the town which was fantastic. With regards Dingle Crystal, we have never been so busy. Whiskey glasses are still the most popular of my pieces and it is no coincidence that Irish Whiskey sales are on the rise Worldwide.
All three of my sons are now working with me this year. My two eldest son’s, Stephen and Shane, are training everyday with me in the workshop while my youngest Son Adam is running the store in Dingle Town. He will be training with me during the Winter. It is a fantastic feeling to be able to work with them and pass on this wonderful craft to them.
This year we got a fantastic write up in our national newspaper ‘The Irish Independent’ which can be read here. After being in business over 16 years and building up a loyal customer base its great to get recognition like this.
Even though Dingle is starting to quieten down, I am still busy with orders for Thanksgiving and Christmas which is great! This is why i want to let you know that if you are interested in placing an order for the Holidays I would ask that you place it before the 1st of December to ensure you have delivery in time for the Holiday season!
