About Us

Hennessy & Byrne Studio

At Hennessy & Byrne we take pride in creating beautiful, high quality and functional tableware and giftware from indigenous Irish stone, such as Connemara Marble, Kilkenny Limestone and Dublin and Wicklow Granite. Building on a family tradition of working with fine marble and granite which spans more than half a century, our products are entirely designed and handcrafted in our ‘Marbleworks’ on the grounds of Russborough House in Blessington, Co. Wicklow.

All of our giftware is handcrafted by Eric Byrne, a second generation master stone mason with over twenty years experience working with the finest marble and granite from all over the world. Eric has always had a passion for Irish stone whether it’s the swirling green veins of Connemara Marble, the lustrous black shades of Kilkenny Limestone or the silver flecks of mica characteristic of Wicklow Granite.

The ancient stone used in our designs was formed up to 750 million years ago, a fact which drives us forward in our efforts to capture the essence and beauty of these hidden treasures of nature to create something truly unique.

The Hennessy & Byrne Marbleworks is open to the public all year round and visitors are always welcome.
