About US

Ireland's oldest family-owned music shop specializing in Stringed and Traditional Musical Instruments. We stock a wide range of violins, violas and cellos, from beginner level to professional including old and restored, as well as modern handmade instruments.

This is one of Dublin's landmarks, a listed building that has been in our family since before 1870; it has seen many of the events that shaped our nation from The Rising 1916, War of Independence, Civil War, Emergency (known to the rest of the world as WW2) , the societal changes of the 60s and 70s, boom/ bust/ boom, referendums and more. The original Charles Byrne worked on the North Side of the the city, in Annesley Avenue while his future wife's family were Barbers in the Stephen Street premises. The business began as specialists in Pianos, Harps, Violins and Harpsichords, undertaking many restoration works including repairing the Egan harp in what would become the National Museum. Over the years it became centred on Violins, Cellos, Violas, and adding traditional Irish instruments from the 1960s onwards. Many of the leading figures of the Folk Revival spent hours in the shop playing and chatting. 
We also stock Banjos, Mandolins, Bouzoukis, Whistles, Low whistles, Bodhráns, Ukuleles and classical guitars. Our ranges of accessories are second to none, including cases, covers, strings, bows, shoulder rests, music stands, and novelty gifts.
In our online store we sell many products - we hope you enjoy browsing them! Remember, for violins cellos mandolins banjos bouzoukis and guitars visit us in person for our unrivaled service and expertise.
