What the people say...

Hi Richard,
We were so delighted to have you part of our wedding day in Co.Offaly.
Having top quality traditional Irish music at our wedding was very important to both of us and you certainly didn’t disappoint.
It’s easy to tell that you are very passionate about the music you play and unbelievably talented also.
You were a pleasure to deal with as it was very easy to select the music and also you seamlessly adapted to accompany my sister’s guitar playing on the day which was really special.
We would highly recommend you to anyone and thanks again for making the day extra special !!
All the best!

Richard Neylon was a pleasure to work with. We were referred by Stephen Neary at Eloping in Ireland so he could play the Uilleann Pipes at our wedding at the Cliffs of Moher. Since our first communication he was very professional and timely with responses. The day of the wedding ceremony the music was very beautiful. Everything came out lovely. Thank you so much, we appreciate everything!

Hi Richard,
I just wanted to thank you and Andrew very much for the music on the day. Aniek and I thought you were great and we have had alot of compliments from our guests on the music.
The Dutch side especially loved when you played “Mná na hÉireann”. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place!
Thanks again for everything and we will pass on your information to anyone that asks.

We booked Richard to play the Uilleann Pipes at the church for our wedding and the music at our drinks reception in May 2017. He is hugely talented and very professional.

Richard saved the evening as well, as with 6 weeks to go we still couldn’t find a band and so he arranged to play on and with 3 other musicians that night!! All equally talented, they played out of their skins for the night and the dancefloor literally never emptied!

3 months later, everyone is still talking about the music at our wedding.

The range that was possible from the beauty of Uilleann Pipes in the church, to the relaxed tunes during the drinks reception and the floor fillers in the evening took our breath away. We promise you won’t be disappointed. We can’t praise Richard highly enough. He along with the others created and maintained the perfect atmosphere for our entire day.

Nothing left to say – just book him! J

Thanks so much again Richard & Co.

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!”

Hi Richard

On behalf of myself and Eimear we want to thank you for making our day more special than we could have ever imagined. Yourself and your brother absolutely blew everyone away and was a real talking point of the day.

Also thank you for staying to play after we left to get photos. It was a last minute decision due to the weather. My granny was so so happy and that really made her day which makes me a happy man!

I cant thank you enough for the Davy Spillane and Patrick Cassidy songs. They were absolutely flawless.

I could go on but I’d be here all day. Thank you once again

Pass on our thanks to the other musicians.

Richard & Andrew Neylon performed at our wedding ceremony and drinks reception last month and they were absolutely fantastic. They are two very talented guys and their music really enhanced our ceremony. I really can’t say enough good things! Richard was so professional in his communication with us prior to the wedding and gave us really helpful suggestions on song choices. All our guests were totally blown away by them and we have received so many compliments on their talent. We cannot wait to get our wedding video just to listen to the music all over again! Thank you again for everything and we will definitely be recommending you to all our friends and family.
Best wishes

I had no concerns going into the day that the music would be good but it was more than that, it was absolutely perfect! You guys (Richard, Andrew(piano & singer) and Una(violin & cello)) did an absolute fantastic job!! The sound was beautiful and it was everything we could have hoped and wished for, thank you!
Thanks again for everything, it’s been a pleasure to work with you.
— Anita and Ollie, Athenry, Galway - October 2016

Richard played the most hauntingly beautiful music (uilleann pipes and flute) at my wedding two weeks ago. It was so moving and everyone that attended is still talking about it! Thereafter, Richard and Pierce played the pipes and guitar at my wedding reception and by the time I got back from my wedding photos, everyone was in flying form, enthused by the spirited music and great vibe that the guys created. They also played the backdrop for a duet performed by my mother and I - a moment I’ll never forget!!
Thanks so much for creating the most wonderful environment for us all.
— Marian & Jordi, Cratloe - September 2016

Hi Richard,
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for playing at the church and reception for our wedding. Your music created such a wonderful atmosphere and everybody commented on how beautiful it was. You were such a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, always ready to give advice or answer questions. You and the lads who played with you afterwards are so talented and we are all so grateful to you for playing such an important role in our big day.
If you want a helpful, amazingly talented and friendly musician then go with Richard! I can promise you you will not be disappointed!
Thanks again so so much.

Tony, myself and all the people absolutely loved it!!! (especially Tony’s cousin Finbarr ;) )
The whole day was absolutely brilliant!
Hopefully I will get to hear you play again sometime soon.
All the best and again, thank you!!

Hi Richard,
Thanks a million. The church music was in no way stressful. You made it so easy for us to organise.
An amazing talent.

Hi Richard,
I just wanted to say you both did a fantastic job at the wedding a few weeks ago, we were so happy with the music so thank you!
We also had tons of compliments from guests at the wedding, everyone loved it and I know the Canadians were especially impressed as they hadn’t seen anything like it before.
Thanks again and all the best!

Hi there Richard,
Marina here - myself and John just wanted to thank you for your beautiful music yesterday, just amazing,
Kind regards
— Marina & John, Bewleys Hotel Dublin July 2015

We were delighted to have Richard play at our wedding ceremony, his music is so beautiful and unique, it really contributed to an unforgettable day for us. When it came to choosing the hymns for the wedding mass we had no idea where to start! Richard was a fantastic help and provided excellent suggestions. We really trusted his experience and judgement. He played a mix of romantic and lively tunes on both the uilleann pipes and flute and also accompanied one of our family members singing.
Our guests were enthralled by the uilleann pipes in particular. As well as being a hugely talented musician, Richard is efficient, reliable and helped make our day all the more special.
— Sinead & James - Tullycross Church, Connemara July 2015

Richard played at our wedding in Galway and he was simply exceptional.
At the church he played both classical flute and uilleann pipes and the music was hauntingly beautiful. My guests also commented afterwards and we were so delighted.
At the hotel he played Irish music for us with two other musicians and had everyone young and old tapping their feet and smiling. It really made the atmosphere in the hotel and a great start to the celebrations.
Not only is Richard a great guy and an obviously very talented musician but he was also extremely professional and was great to work with from the very start. He was quick to return any emails and he was happy to speak with us a few times before the wedding in order to discuss our music selection.
He put us completely at ease and with his experience he was able to help advise us on what he felt would work well during the church ceremony also which was a great help.
Everything was perfect and we would absolutely recommend Richard.
