If your child’s instrument hire period has ended, you will need to purchase one. The following are details and contact numbers of some of the main music stores, both locally and in Dublin.  You are advised to ring the relevant music shops beforehand to ensure that they have your instrument in stock.  Your child’s music tutor will also be able to offer advice on any instrument choice.

If your child plays a woodwind or brass instrument, Eamon Cahill may also be able to source a good quality second hand instrument for you.  You should contact Eamon directly in this regard.
