Product Description

The green hills of Ireland are called to mind when you hold this beautiful Genuine Connemara Marble Rosary. Hand-crafted in Ireland, the unique cubed marble beads showcase Connemara Marble's various shades of green. Connemara means "of the sea" and comes from the Connemara Mountains in the most western parts of Ireland in County Galway. To complete the rosary is a Celtic crucifix. The rosary is constructed with an extra strong double link chain and measures 25" long.

Few things reflect the beauty of creation more strongly than the deep and varied greens of Connemara Marble, found only in a small corner of Ireland's Atlantic seaboard. These Rosary Beads, handmade in Dublin from marble cut from a quarry in Co. Galway, are part of a long tradition in Irish Rosary beads.

The first Irish Rosaries were made by monks of the great settlements like Cashel, Clonmacnoise and Glendalough. Using the horns of animals, they fashioned beads of natural beauty and simple strength. Their strength in particular put them much in demand in medieval Europe, where the rosary was a widely observed meditation, and personal link with the Creator.

These beads continue that tradition, combining natural beauty with practical strength. Carry them with you, and tranquility will never be far away.

My beautiful irish rosary

Review: I received this rosary as a gift from my son and daughter in law. It is the most beautiful and strongest I have ever owned. I love it to death. My only concern is the crucifix which I think does not give a good compliment to this beautiful rosary. I went on line and finally found a crucifix that will do this. It is 2 inches long solid sterling silver and is of true claddagh design and engraved to my spects. Can't wait to receive it in the mail this week. Thanks, Chuck.

somewhat disappointed

Review: I agree with "almost perfect" assessment of this rosary. The crucifix and centerpiece should be heavier and of equal quality to the beautiful beads and links. I would even be willing to pay a little more for it!

Beautiful Irish Rosary

Review: I love my beautiful Irish rosary. I keep it wrapped around a small, simple statue of Our Lady I bought in Assisi. Therefore, there is always a rosary handy downstairs. I love it's strength. I often break a rosary or the cross comes off and this beautiful Irish rosary is so strong and awesome that it will be safer in my hands. But, in spite of its strength, I find myself treating it ever more gently and as a result the other rosaries as well. What can I say? The Irish rosary inspires prayer and conquers sloth. The rosary is for praying and this rosary is loved as are all the others. Best Uses: Inspires prayer; Pros: Strong, Sturdy

Love it

Review: I had a rosary like this one stolen from my car.. I thought I would never be able to replace it. I found this identical rosary on your website. I love the uniqueness of the beads and my Irish heritage brought me closer knowing these are stones quarried in Ireland.. Recommend this rosary!!!!!

Will last forever!

Review: I am a rosary maker and have made over 5,000 rosaries. I highly recommend this rosary for travelers. Very sturdy, good looking and will last you forever. I have had mine for over 20 years now and they still look great My wife is of Irish ancestry and she is pleased to see me praying with this "Irish" rosary. Best Uses: I leave mine in the car, Pray while in traffic; Cons: none; Pros: Great men's rosary, Very sturdy, Will last a lifetime


Review: I was so excited to receive my new rosary beads so quickly, but disappointed when I opened the package and found that the crucifix and the medal were of very poor quality. The marble beads and the construction of the rosary otherwise was very nice.

Perfect for an Irish man!

Review: I bought this rosary for a male friend & he could not have been happier. I find that purchasing rosaries for men is more complicated so this is a huge compliment. The beads are genuine marble & the celtic crucifix is done beautifully. Very happy w/ my purchase.

Not for Ninnies!

Review: A beautiful "industrial strength" rosary for ham-handed people like me. I wish that the center medal and the crucifix were more substantial to match the "heft" of the beads, but I am very pleased with it. Note: I doubt the TSA would allow you to bring it on the plane.

Genuine Connemara Marble Irish Rosary

Review: My plan was to carry the rosary in my pocket. I like the look and feel of the marble beads. The rosary appears to be durable, a definite plus. Unfortunately, heavier and larger than I thought. A little disappointed in the make of the crucifix. Pros: Very well made

Genuine Connemara marble Irish Rosary

Review: This is a beautiful rosary, very large and seems durable. The only thing that kept it from being a five star item was the crucifix should be of a heavier metal, seems a bit chincy when compared to the rest of the rosary. The marble however is very uniquely shaped and very beautiful, I cannot wait to give it to my husband this Easter!

Quality and Unique

Review: Very nice ... recommend without any reservation. We used it for a daughter-in-law for RCIA (joining the Church); however, would be nice for other reasons like Confirmation. Best Uses: Confirmation, RCIA; Pros: Quality, Unique

I would recommend this rosary!

Review: I love the feel and weight of this rosary, not to mention it's better looking than what's in the photo. I'm well pleased!

Beuatiful & Irish! Great size & weight!

Review: I never lose my place with the gorgeous rosary. It is actually an engineering great with solid wire holding the beads square to the line with perfect spacing. I have already given this as a gift, as well as owning one for myself. It will continue to be the gift for the 'right' friends as birthdays, or other occasions allow. It just doesn't get any better!

Very Unique Irish Rosary

Review: I have had enjoyed using this unique Irish rosary for several years now. It gives me a connection to my Irish heritage when saying my prayers daily.

My IRISH Rosary

Review: Greetings! I am almost an Irish Catholic, I will be entering the Catholic Church come the Easter Vigil of 2014! I received this wonderful rosary as a gift from a dear friend who has helped me in my studies during my RCIA class formation. I just LOVE IT!! It is heavy and very well made from Ireland. It hangs just above my bed and is easily ready anytime I wish to pray the whole rosary or just a few words of prayer. If you love Ireland or just appreciate good craftsmanship, this is the rosary for you or a loved one.

Unique, Beautiful and Substantial (with two acceptions).

Review: Overall I am happy with my new rosary. Having read the description plus the reviews I knew what to expect. The beads are approx. 1/4 inch, fairly rugged and quite beautiful. The double-linked chain is strong and long. This is a large and substantial rosary for the most part. Which leads me this rosary's only drawback. The crucifix and centerpiece do not fit this rosary. The Crucifix a decent size but is light and thin. The centerpiece is far too small.

Bead broke in half.

Review: One of the beads broke in half.
