  1. I have been collecting Waterford Crystal for years. I just purchased a new Gorgeous piece, and read two articles about the history of Waterford and Ireland.

    I hope to visit Ireland someday, it is a beautiful land from what articles read and the awesome beauty seen in pictures. The highlight of course for me would be visiting the Waterford factory. It’s simply not in the budget for me and my wife anytime soon

    I wish Waterford, and or Ireland would consider giving one generous trip a year. It would create more interest in their homeland and publicity for them.

    Thank you very much for focusing on this story. I have enjoyed it very much. I enjoyed the questions you asked, you researched thoroughly.

    • Thank you so much for your comment. I love Waterford Crystal too. I have not been to the factory but that is definitely something I want to do. Hope you and your wife make that trip to Ireland one day soon.
