Where

Connemara lies on Ireland’s west coast. Battered by the wild Atlantic, it is known for its rugged barren beauty, horizontal rain, craggy coastline, crazy sheep and a mountain range that gently rises up from the bogs below.

A tough, wild and unique environment its mountains, known as the Twelve Bens, are the source of Ireland’s rarest stone, Connemara Marble. Known for its earthy grey green tones, a marble that echoes the landscape it is hewn from.

Process

Nestled deep in the foothills of Connemara’s mountains lies the world renowned Joyce’s Marble Quarry. It is from this single quarry that Connemara Marble is hewn and hoisted free cut and washed and brought to the Hennessy & Byrne Marble Works, Co. Wicklow.

Here in the hands of Master Stone Mason Eric Byrne the raw marble is crafted into individual whiskey stones ready for use.
