Kilkenny Crystal (Callan) Ltd

Founded in 1969 by Patrick Clancy Kilkenny Crystal is Ireland’s oldest Family-owned Crystal Studio Workshop.
Patrick was the first Irish born crystal designer and is regarded as the most important due to the iconic original designs he created. Miroslav Havel the head designer at Waterford visited the studio in Callan to meet Patrick and see his work. The range of Castle shaped items that Patrick pioneered became the symbol of Kilkenny Crystal and Patrick's signature piece.
Our use of traditional techniques means that our crystal is likened to antique quality. Each piece is deeply cut by hand and then polished with care to retain a fine finish.
We create many original designs and unusual pieces and due to the limited number of pieces produced each year many items become valuable collectors items.
