I have been selling violins from my house in Kinvara, Co Galway since 2002. I specialise in instruments for advancing students and accomplished musicians, and my customers come from traditional and classical disciplines. I carry an exceptional range of quality small fiddles for talented young players, and a constant stock of at least twenty
full-sized instruments. I have a good selection of violas as well. Contact me if you would like to make an appointment to come and look at some instruments, and please take the time to check the conditions for visiting the workshop, which are on the same page.


I have years of experience in sourcing and setting up quality instruments, both old and new. Because I work at home I have low overheads, which means that I can offer good prices. I'm particularly partial to French violins, which always sound good, and you'll find some lovely ones here.

I live and work near Kinvara, Co Galway, just on the edge of the Burren. Why not make an appointment to come and try out some of my instruments? Kinvara is a beautiful seaside town with nice pubs and cafes, and if you haven't visited the Burren before, you have a treat in store. Unusual flora, and an abundance of birds and wildlife. Including, of course, wild goats.
