Welcome to Ireland's oldest family owned Music Shop. Est circa 1870, on the Northside of Dublin by the original owner, David Charles Byrne it originally specialized in Pianos, Harps and Harpsichords. In the early 1920s the marriage of Charles Byrne to Christina Monaghan of Stephen Street saw the shop relocate to her family's premises where it remains to this day. In it's time the business has seen many historic events, from the Home Rule era to Independence, and played it's part in activities during the Rising and War of Independence. Booms and recessions, times of conservatism and progress, we've seen them all.
Since the 1960s we have specialized in Stringed Instruments (violins, violas, cellos, mandolins, banjos, bouzoukis) and Irish Traditional Music (Bodhrans, Low and Standard whistles, Wooden Flutes, Spoons and Bones) In recent years we have added many specialist and unique lines from music gifts (Curiosa Devon, Hal Leonard, Music Gifts, Ceolnet Designs) to handmade instruments (Tim Adams Flutes, Kingstown Ukes) Ukuleles have become a favourite part of our inventory and we are proud to represent many major brands, Kala Lanikai Freshman and more.
