Waltons New School of Music has Irish music tasters (lessons) for beginners ( tourists) and they are great! I had a 1 hour Bodhran lesson with Kevin and it was fantastic - one of the highlights of my holiday!!

Waltons is a manufacturer of Irish music instruments. Waltons has a large music shop in South George street and a music school above. In the shop we bought some bodhrans and we had lessons playing bodhran and tinwhistle. The teacher was knowledgable, patient and very friendly. We would love to come back for more lessons in the future. If you... More
