Criostal na Rinne is a hand cut crystal studio workshop situated in Ireland's Ancient East in the picturesque Irish-speaking area of An Rinn, the Waterford Gaeltacht. Eamonn Terry, a master craftsman glasscutter of over 45 years experience, started his career with Waterford Crystal before establishing Criostal na Rinne in 1987, producing Irish crystal of breathtaking quality and beauty.
From our small, family-run workshop in An Rinn, Co. Waterford, we craft precise hand cut crystal products for discerning customers around the world. The products we make are stories made physical. More than just useful objects, they create meaningful connection with our rich culture, history, nature and language.
Criostal na Rinne is situated on the coast of west Waterford in Ireland’s Ancient East, near the Waterford Greenway. We are nestled a short distance from historic towns and villages such as Lismore, Dungarvan, Ardmore and Youghal. We are located just 8km off the N25 between Dungarvan and Cork near the R674 to An Rinn and Ceann Heilbhic.
