We visited this store twice while in Galway---the first visit a quick walk through to get an idea of selection and pricing. While there, my daughter mentioned that maybe they could fix my watch--and Jonathan turned around and asked to see it. He quickly repaired...More

The Claddagh RIng museum is located inside Thomas Dillon's Jewelers and the history here is amazing. They have old photographs of Galway, letters from dignitaries from all over the world, and antique rings that are absolutely stunning. I purchased a white gold claddagh while there,...More

We visited for the tiny Claddagh museum in the back of the shop. It was full of interesting artefacts, photos and a little soundtrack covering the origin of the Claddagh ring. We looked in the shop too and took home a couple of beautiful items....More

Galway is the home of the claddagh ring. There are lots of shops where you can buy them, including street stalls and jewellers. Thomas Dillon's claims to be the original. If they aren't, at least they sell quality products that come with a guarantee. They...More

T. Dillon is the first and original. While they size your claddagh (gold, rose gold, silver), your friends can view their small museum. They will re-polish the rings forever, too. We stop by from America every 6 years or so for a polish, and some...More
