Ballyhannon Castle Magic

A real treat it was to play at this intimate wedding in Ballyhannon Castle, Quin, county Clare.

What an amazing setting, and such a great idea to be able to hire out this fantastic castle for a wedding. The wedding ceremony was held by candlelight in The Great Room of the Castle.

The pipes felt right at home here..

Stephanie and Mike were kind enough to leave me with these lovely few words:


"Planning a destination wedding in Ireland from the United States came with its challenges, but Richard certainly was not one of them! We discovered him through a few online searches and knew immediately he was the musician for us! I walked down the aisle, or in my case, spiraling castle steps to ‘Ag Criost an tSiol’ and I still get chills down my spine thinking about it. No true words can explain the sound of Richard’s Uilleann Pipes echoing through a 15th century castle! Richard is a true professional and kind soul. He made our wedding day and ceremony truly unforgettable. Wish we could go back and do it all over again! Thank you Richard!”
