Cavan Crystal is the second oldest crystal factory in Ireland and was founded in 1969 by six successful business men from the Cavan town area. These men were committed to bringing much needed employment to the town by encouraging industry, craftsmanship and tourism.

The Craft of Crystal Making seemed to be the perfect choice and so the first factory was erected and the cutting of crystal began in Cavan. It was history in the making.

In 1998 the company underwent a huge re-building sheme and was bought in 1999 by a consortium of businessmen from our neighbouring counties of Monaghan and Tyrone. Under their management, the building was completed, including the contemporary Cavan Crystal Hotel. An extensive brand new contemporary and stylish gift shop was opened, which offers a fantastic new range of gifts as well as our beautiful range of Cavan Crystal.

While our range maintains its traditional standards, it has also been expanded to include some more contemporary crystal ranges like the Balavaun and Opus suites. Cavan Crystal's designer Seamus Comac is re-designing our standard range of products and won the "Product of the Show" Award for our Balavaun Collection at the Autumn Gift Fair in Dublin.
