Wateford Crystal Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

The famous Waterford glassworks were founded in 1783. They are now the world's largest crystal factory. Visitors can appreciate the different stages of glass-making, beginning with molten glass casting and concluding with delicate polishing. A collection of crystal is on show and videos of the production process are on sale.
