Founded by the first CCHARLIE BYRNE in 1870,
ours is one of the oldest family-owned music shops in Europe.

The very building itself has seen many of the historical events,
which have shaped the Republic of Ireland.
Home Rule, The Easter Rising, The War of Independence, Civil War and more,
 becoming itself a listed heritage building and a recognised local landmark for Dubliners.

 

The area of Stephen Street is rich in history,
near such major sites as Trinity College and Dublin Castle
and some less known teasures such as the Civic Museam and
the BirthPlace of Thomas Moore, the Poet.
 
The reigning Charles Byrne ( Third generation ) has
the family tradition of musical expertise and with the help of the
newest generation is happy to see that tradition extend into the twenty first century.

Through our doors have come some of the most talented,
versatile and colourful characters from Ireland's Dual
Traditions of Classical and Folk Music.

Why not follow in their footsteps and pay us a visit...
If you're lucky, you may persaude Charlie Byrne himself to
regale you with some of the stories of Aul Dublin and its characters
that we can't print here....
