The mining of Connemara Marble is one of Ireland’s oldest indigenous industries. The Connemara Marble Visitor Center is located at Moycullen, 8 miles west of Galway City on the N59. The marble factory showroom and shop has Ireland's largest display of Connemara Marble jewellery, fashioned in gold and silver depicting the shamrock, harp, Celtic cross and the Claddagh ring.

The Connemara Marble Center offers the visitor an opportunity to purchase Connemara jewellery, gift items and to view the skilled master craftsmen at work cutting and polishing marble. In addition, a large selection of marble gifts such as clocks, ashtrays, marble eggs, cheese boards and chess boards are available. Visitors can enjoy the added attraction of seeing the center's craftsmen at work.

The Joyce family opened the Streamstown marble quarry in Clifden in 1822. Marble from here adorns the Galway Cathedral floor and the walls of the Senate Chamber of the State Capital Building in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
