Dublin Crystal Glass Limited was established in 1968. Edward F. Taylor, the father of the present managing director of the company, set about reviving the tradition of fine crystal in Dublin. Edward, alongside his wife Rosaleen F. Taylor and Pierce Keaveney, started Dublin Crystal on May 13th, 1968. Martin Taylor took over as Managing Director in 1982, after the death of Edward. The company has grown steadily for over 50 years since its incorporation. It has gradually built a reputation for quality crystal and fine engraving, which is second to none in the country.
Dublin Crystal is proud to have the historical background it does, as we have had many pieces presented by the Lord Mayors of Dublin and the Irish Government. It has been presented to World leaders, every US President since Jimmy Carter, except Joe Biden. He's still waiting for his! Sports stars and stars of stage and screen! Not to forget our long-standing bonds with providing awards to schools and clubs around the country.
Dublin Crystal Gifts and Awards is now based in Dundrum, County Dublin, Ireland. The company has come a long way since being set up in 1968 and will celebrate its 55th anniversary in business this year. Over this time, we have prided ourselves in providing excellent customer service and having very loyal returning customers.
The range in our Dundrum showroom comprises tableware, stemware, giftware, trophies, awards and presentations. Most of the range can be engraved. This process is a speciality of the company - we can reproduce virtually any logo, crest, photograph, signature or personal message.
The business has been able to keep ahead of other glass and crystal engravers by constantly learning and using new engraving techniques. Our engraving varies from sand-blast to sub-surface 3D laser engraving to our latest surface laser engraving.
We also offer crystal and glass repairs on chipped glass, broken pieces of crystal and sometimes cracks. We can also remove most engraving from old trophies to inherited crystal ornaments and collections. See our video about how we repair chipped glass here.
