  • Reviews

Ciaran is a Meath based professional contemporary guitarist performing solo instrumental (both acoustic and electric) guitar for 15 years. He plays special occasions such as wedding ceremonies, drinks receptions, dinner parties & restaurant ambience. 

He can accompany other singers/musicians and also sings himself. While catering for all tastes, he does like to do things a little differently and puts his own spin on things apart from just playing traditional wedding music. He adds his own unique blend of melodic, atmospheric guitar soundscapes to any musical style, including indie rock, classical, jazz, contemporary pop, folk/country and anything in between.

Due to his years experience playing different types of ceremonies, he knows their structures in detail and the sections where music is placed, and is happy to help if you need any advice on this.

Ciaran aims to provide a soundtrack to your ceremony that will stand out and possess an intensity and originality that will make it ultimately very unique and memorable.

We had the pleasure of having Ciaran play for our wedding ceremony and pre dinner drink reception a few weeks ago. He was superb and such pleasure to listen too. He was so helpful in choosing our music and nothing was too much trouble to him. He was so professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend. Thanks again Ciarán.

Ciaran was fantastic and added so much to making our day perfect. We wanted 80s music for our ceremony and drinks reception and Ciaran extremely flexible and obliging in learning new songs and tailoring his set for us. On the day, his performance was brilliant and all the guests loved it. Also very good value for money.

We could not have chosen a better guitarist to play at our wedding. Several guests commented on how much they enjoyed Ciaran's playing pre-ceremony. Ciaran also went above and beyond in accompanying my cousin who sang during the ceremony--he even met with her beforehand to practice! He also pleasantly surprised us during the ceremony with learning to play a song that's very special to me and my husband (he and our officiant coordinated it!)--it made our ceremony even more meaningful. I'd highly recommend his services to anyone seeking a professional who plays beautifully, is easy to work with and accommodating, and is very responsive to emails (important to us because we were planning our wedding from abroad).

It was such a pleasure having Ciaran play at our wedding, and he did us the kindness of bringing the beautiful Blaitin at our request for our first dance. The music was stunning, and we got so many compliments about the ambience Ciaran set. He is a very talented musician with a catalogue of songs that will please everyone, and a pleasure to deal with. Always professional, kind and reliable. Can't reommend highly enough.

Ciaran did an amazing job at our ceremony. Played during the ceremony, beautiful music. Played during the drinks reception too. Guests commented on how good he was. Very flexible too as we had to change the time at the last minute. Thanks again Marcin and Stephen

I can't say enough positive things about Ciaran and his performance at our wedding. We wanted a specific piece played from the Legend of Zelda games as part of our ceremony and not only did Ciaran go out of his way to learn it for our benefit, he played it absolutely beautifully. It sounded better than I could have imagined. Everything he played on the day was exactly as we wanted it; the ceremony music was flawless, and at the drinks reception music was utterly beautiful. A massive thanks to Ciaran for helping to make our day so special.

Ciaran performed during our ceremony and drinks reception for our wedding and he was absolutely fantastic. Our only regret is not booking him for longer! He went above and beyond, learning (unique) new songs for our ceremony upon request. Each song was incredible and so personal. Everything sounded fantastic and we received multiple compliments from our guests. He gelled well with all our suppliers and had such a personable touch. We cannot recommend Ciaran enough. If you want a professional, personal and skilled guitarist go for Ciaran. You will not be disappointed! Seona and Will

Thanks so much Ciaran for doing such an amazing job for my wedding in the Shelbourne Hotel Dublin. The Humanist ceremony was amazing with the instrumental pieces we chose people are still talking about it. Also the pre reception drinks. Amazing work, thanks again!

Ciaran Byrne is a really amazing guitar player and has such a wide range of music knowledge. For our wedding ceremony we chose some songs that aren't traditionally played on guitar, they sounded so unique and beautiful in the church. Our guest were blown away by the sound from the electric guitar and by Ciarans playing ability. Your wedding day is such a special and emotional day and I really feel that the music added another layer to the ceremony. I love to hear some of the songs on the radio and think back to the day I got married. Beautiful memories, thanks Ciaran.

We were absolutely delighted to have you play at our wedding! Thanks a million

Hi Ciaran, We just wanted to thank you again for yesterday. We had great positive feedback from everyone about you and the ceremony. People felt it was warm and personal - just what we wanted. Thanks a million for making the day so special for us and setting the tone for the day. Best regards,
Louise and Ollie
Hi Ciaran, We're not long back from honeymoon now and I wanted to get onto you straightaway to let you know how happy we were with the music on the day of the wedding. You did a fabulous job and the songs we asked you to learn sounded fantastic. I'm sure you have a new appreciation now for all things "Beatles" !!! You played non stop for the drinks reception afterwards which I know went on a little longer than expected so thank you for continuing through. I will have no problem in recommending you to friends and family in the future Ciaran and wish you all the best Thanks a million

Hi Ciaran Just wanted to say thanks a million for yesterday. You played a blinder, the amount of people that said the guitar was amazing, especially Vinny. Couldn't have asked for better.
