Harpist for weddings and funerals cork


Music has the capacity to uplift those who are mourning and strengthens the assembly in faith and love and creates a spirit of hope. The Harp is a gentle choice for a requiem mass and Mairead’s experienced approach is both sympathetic and unobtrusive.

I had the hard task of organising a wedding from Australia, I was looking for someone to provide music at the ceremony for me and I have always loved the harp. Mairead was recommended to me by a friend, I emailed Mairead and she was very helpful and efficient in providing her details and music set lists to us and she also offered to learn any songs that were not on the list that we wanted. We booked Mairead straight away! Our wedding was in August 2014 and we were lucky with the weather, we had a beautiful outdoor setting at Innishannon House Hotel. Mairead brought her own little amp which meant the music was not lost in the surroundings. She played a beautiful set list which fitted in perfectly with our outdoor wedding setting. All of my friends and family commented on how lovely the music was on the day! I would highly recommend Mairead for weddings or any other event.

Hi Mairead,

I just wanted to check in with you and pass on my sincere thanks for your flexibility and professionalism last Saturday setting up for the mass in a rather ‘busy’ church! 🙂 I enjoyed the mass so much, it was my favourite part of the day. Thank you for your beautiful contribution to it. Take care.


Thank you for making the long trip down to Dingle to play at our wedding.The music during the ceremony and reception was wonderful whether being played in the front room or in the brief but most welcome sunny spell outside Ballintaggart House.Thank you also for your card which was very thoughtful.
Best wishes Susannah and Brian
