Displaying the October photo competition prize, a Dingle Crystal Bud Vase

We're a bit emotional here at Vagabond as our 2019 tours are coming to an end. What a year it has been. This years entries have blown us all away and we want to finish off strong so get all your photos in! Remember you can enter up to five.

October is a beautiful time to visit Ireland as the colours are changing and the weather is still quite mild. The average daily temperature is roughly 14°C (57° Fahrenheit). We also have Halloween at the end of October so you can be sure to see businesses and homes around Ireland full of decorations leading up to it. 

Looking for more information? Check out our blog on why October is a great month to visit Ireland here.

The Prize:

We had to make our last competition of 2019 a special one which is why we felt that a prize from Dingle Crystal would be perfect. For our last prize they have kindly donated a beautiful handmade bud vase as you can see above. We love visiting Sean and his family down in Dingle and it is always a guest favourite.

Dingle Crystal are a family run business specialising in hand-cut Irish crystal. Each piece is handmade by Sean Daly at his workshop in Dingle, Co. Kerry. Sean’s unique celtic designs are inspired by the rich heritage and breathtaking landscape of Ireland’s west coast. All of their crystalware is designed, cut and polished by hand, using traditional techniques. With every step of the production process being carried out in Ireland, Dingle Crystal is a true embodiment of Irish craft.

No two pieces are exactly the same and each piece is personally signed by Sean. This is how Sean guarantees a unique and individual piece of Irish crystal to each of his customers.
