If you’re having a small to medium sized boutique style wedding and looking for an alternative to the big band set up then singer, songwriter and all round entertainer Liam Byrne is the one to call. With 20 years of entertainment experience under his belt, including 10 years in the wedding & corporate scene, Liam is one of most original and versatile performers in Ireland today. His repertoire covers all genres and generations. 

When you book Liam, you are not only booking a singer with a tenor voice and over 150 songs in his set list but also an entertainer that brings more humour, banter and craic to a wedding than any other act on the circuit today. Liam’s show can go from easy listening background music at the beginning, to foot stomping floor filling medleys toward the end with classic sing along Irish session songs and craic right throughout the night. 

Liam comes armed with guitar, bodhran, percussion, harmonica, a razor sharp wit that will win over any audience and some songs that are so funny, you’ll still be laughing on your first anniversary… All this and he is still just a ‘’one man band’’!!

Liam is also available for church music, drinks receptions and his post wedding party gigs are becoming ever more popular. Finally, if you fancy a fire side session in the residence bar after your main dance band, book Liam for ‘’The Graveyard Shift’’ and he’ll keep ye going till the sun comes up.

We booked Liam for our drinks reception and he was hands down one of the highlights of the day. We had a small wedding and asked him to play to the crowd and get the party started before dinner and that is exactly what he did. He interacted with our guests, included them in the songs and we even jumped up to have an impromptu first dance, the craic was brill! All of our guests raved about him and asked where we found him. I’m only sorry we didn’t book him for longer or for the day after. Not only is he a true gent but a true professional and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Thanks again Liam for putting on an amazing set and contributing to our wedding in the best way!

Tina and David...G’day!! Thank you for the sweetest review imaginable.. I’m truly grateful. Your impromptu first dance on the lawn of Maryborough House was something I’ll remember for a long time... and your mate from Donegal of coarse... I hope she got home safe and sound????????. Thanks so much for having me as part of your entertainment on the day. Everyone had a bit of craic... your one man band included. See you sometime again I hope. Best wishes to you both. Liam. X.

Do not hesitate to book Liam Byrne - he is amazing!!! Liam played for us and our small wedding party in Actons Pub in Brooklodge on the night of our wedding. Our wedding party are still talking about the night thanks to Liam! He played non stop for over 4 hours....His ability to get the crowd going is just brilliant. He not only has a fantastic voice....but is an all round brilliant entertainer. We had the most amazing night and one we will never forget. Thank you Liam....from one very very happy bride and groom!
Response from Liam Byrne
Eimear and Darren. What a great night we had in Actins pub. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of your wedding. Sometimes a band is only as good as the audience he meets on the night... it was very easy to get your guests onside... they were so nice to play for. Thanks for having me... mucho love, Liam.

We hired Liam for a gathering for the day after our wedding, he was very reliable and flexible and took time out to discuss the song set and what we wanted for the evening. Most importantly on the night he was a roaring success playing a mix of trad & modern covers, very open to taking requests and even allowing some of the guests to take the mic to lead us in song, thus ensuring we had a brilliant second night of celebrations. Thanks again Liam. Cahir & Diane

We booked Liam for our second day after our wedding in Dunboyne Castle. He was amazing, he got our crowd going on the second day when the heads may not have been fully functional initially!!! Everyone was up dancing again and didn’t want him to stop! He didn’t leave until midnight after playing since 7. He was an absolute gentleman and great craic and we were delighted we booked him. Would highly recommend!!
Response from Liam Byrne

Response from Liam Byrne
Cheers David..My first time in the Horseshow House and it was a good sing-along. I hope you got a jacket to fit you before you left!!! All the best...thanks for the booking. Liam.

What can We say, Liam exceeded our expectations when he played at our wedding pre dinner drinks. He sang and strummed us into the hotel when we arrived with one of our favourite songs with all our friends and family gathered in the hotel reception area and continued to play and entertain the crowd right up to before dinner. He was able to gauge the crowd and played any requests with great wit and banter, the best songs just kept rolling. Liam is a fantastic singer and musician, and we would only love to have another excuse to book him again to get a party started!
Response from Liam Byrne
Good morning Caroline. Many thanks for your lovely review. Thank you for a lovely afternoon with your friends and family. Some of them found themselves to snug in those big couches to get up and head for dinner!! It was a great afternoon and Bloomfield was the perfect venue for a Christmas wedding. I learned Bruce's ''Glory Days'' for your wedding and I've been playing it at every gig since...I never knew it was so popular..so thanks for that!! I hope to meet you both soon again. Thanks soooo much for your booking. Liam.

We were having a small group of a 100 guests so I was looking for something a different than a big band so I booked Liam Byrne and I wasn’t disappointed he was amazing, he played for everyone and really got the floor full in no time and kept it that way .... even now weeks after the wedding people are still asking who he was and how much they enjoyed him . Well worth every penny and more , well beyond anyone’s expectations and a gentleman as well , a highly recommended entertainer .
Response from Liam Byrne
Rose & Tommy. Thanks for having me at your wedding at The Brandon House. You had a lively bunch and they were up for the craic so that made my job a tad easier. I had my fair share of sweets off the sweet cart while bringing in my gear so the sugar rush may have added to my performance a bit!! See you both again soon for another session. All the best, Liam.
Review by
Liam played our wedding drinks reception and was our live music after dinner on November 2nd in Virginia Park Lodge. The energy from this man is something else. The dance floor was jammers, the craic was mighty and the songs were both beautiful and boosting all at the same time. We were delighted to go with a musician that was full of heart and talent. The team at Virginia Park also commented on the fantastic music, and the 'unweddingyness' of it all. Sher, what more could you ask for. Louise and Conor
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi guys..Greetings from home! I hope ye have arrived back in Bermuda safe, sound and well recovered. That was a super day and I was so honoured to be apart of it. Thank you for looking after me so well...Dinner was lovely and we were well entertained by the magician..he was amazing. All our facetime calls were great and I'm delighted the day went so well. It was just a lovely day from start to finish and it was great to catch up with Shiela too..she is a great singer! Your guests were reallu up for the craic and they were there from all over so i'm delighted that everyone had a ball....Feel free to keep in touch on facebook....all the best for now..Liam.
Review by
........there are no words! Our guests are still talking about what an amazing night they had at our wedding day 2. From the moment we met Liam when he arrived at the venue, to the moment he left (some 4 and a half hours later) we knew we were in safe hands. He read the room brilliantly and lead off the evening with a mixture of comedy songs, and traditional Irish drinking songs. After his very short break he cracked in to the classics! The room went from rolling with laughter, to rocking it on the dance floor in the blink of an eye. I'm fairly sure our guests enjoyed day two better than day 1! But we won't take it personally - we're just glad that we were able to introduce our guests to Liam.
Response from Liam Byrne
Ciaran and Maria. It was indeed a night of two halves..and what a night it was. I knew it was going to be a special one when the first song was that wee tune about Tac Murphy...after that sure it just went from strength to strength.Time flies when your having fun and that 4 and a half hours did indeed fly by. I'm very grateful for your booking and forliam being a a part of your weekend in Moyvalley. I hope we will meet soon again. Slan go foill,

Liam Byrne is a gentleman. Very talented! ... he kept our guests entertained and played our first song perfectly! He really makes his songs and stage his own! ... highly recommend.
Response from Liam Byrne
Anne and Tony. Thank you so much for your review. It was great to be a part of your special day in Kilmuckridge. Congrats on all the work ye did on the room. It looked super as I was setting up that day. Best of luck to you both with your new business..I'm sure our paths will cross again very soon. Liam.

What an entertainer! Liam performed at our second day celebration and got the party going immediately. His vast array of songs impressed everyone and his knack for the craic had everyone entertained from start to finish. His set list was perfect and the songs with the harmonica were a treat. Our guests were/are still raving about him. He was a gent to deal with and we would highly recommend him for any event where you want to be assured of a good night for all. Almost 12 years on from when we first saw Liam perform at RAG week in UCC, we were once again delighted with his performance. He kept us on a high all through the night and into the next day. I love you Miriam O'Callaghan is a must!
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Mark & Roisin. Wow..Thank you for the lovely review and your kind words. It was such a pleasure entertaining you and your friends & families. It was another great night at Coolbawn Quay and I enjoyed it as much as yourselves. Thank you for having me and I was delighted to be a part of your wedding celebrations 12 years on since our first meeting. We will do it all again somewhere soon I'm sure. Thanks again...Liam.
Review by
We had the pleasure of Liam performing at both our drinks reception (for 250 people) and at our day 2 session in a pub (about 50 people) and he absolutely knocked our socks off for both! Our guests were all raving about him, he's such an excellent performer and knows exactly how to get a crowd going. He plays such a variety of music and kept absolutely everyone happy. Liam thank you so much and we're just looking for an excuse to have a party to book you again!!
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Jess & Sean. What a great night upstairs in Langtons we had.. It was a tight squeeze but that only added to the craic. Thanks a mill for inviting me sing on both dayes...I truely enjoyed it. Hopefully we will do it all again at another function soon. Thanks and best wishes, Liam.
Review by
We booked Liam for our wedding to play after the Band instead of a DJ. He did a fantastic job and is very professional - seamless set up in the residents bar. The party kept going to 4.30 and when Liam describes it as graveyard shift he does it justice. He created a great atmosphere with his solo performance and provided super entertainment and craic. Thanks again and we would highly recommend Liam as the entertainment for any special occasion. Cris and MP
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Cris & MP. It was well worth the trip to Clare to play for your wedding. Sure we all really came alive at 1am!! It was beautiful morning for driving home and I was buzzing after such a great night. I hope to see you both again soon...sure ye are only up the road!! Hope ye had a lovely honeymoon. Thanks again. Liam.
Review by
We had Liam for our post barbeque entertainment on the second day of our wedding in Mount Falcon, Ballina in August for an audience of about 80 made up of young, old and everything in between. Liam is a truly gifted musician whose range and repertoire seem boundless. When performing Christy Moore or traditional Irish ballads, you would think you are listening to the original artist. Liam will turn his hand to practically anything requested by his audience and had something for everyone, from really obscure old Irish songs to the latest chart hits. He really got the room going and our guests are still talking about him. The real beauty of Liam’s show is his rapport with the audience and the craic and banter that he generates. His interaction with our guests, young and old, and some of his original songs were truly hilarious. He is hugely accommodating and encouraging in getting your guests up to sing and is even happy to have them use his instruments. This is really ideal for an event like a wedding after-party for close family and friends and creates some really great memories (and videos!). Liam was an absolute gentleman to deal with and the whole process of booking through to him performing on the night was incredibly relaxed and hassle free. Liam didn’t even ask for a deposit in advance, which I found remarkable given he was travelling from Wexford to Mayo for the gig. The crowd absolutely loved him and he ended up playing for far longer than the 3 hours that had been arranged which was really great of him considering he was facing a 4.5hr journey home that night. I really can’t rate Liam’s entertainment and his professionalism highly enough and would be delighted to recommend him to anyone. He was really one of the highlights of our wedding weekend.

Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Stephen. Thanks a mill for having me on day 2 of your wedding celebrations at Seafield. You had a lovely bunch of people with you and it was a pleasure to entertain you all. Hope you all enjoyed the ''very''sunny south east..See you again soon. Liam

Mighty crack. We got Liam for the night after our wedding when we were all a bit more relaxed and it was great crack. His song "livin in a field in Avoca" had us in tears. Great crack, highly recommended
Response from Liam Byrne
Hey Dave...Thanks for having me...Yep..Avoca was the one indeed..Should have sang it twice! The Doleman was a great place to play. Hope all is well for ye all. Liam.
Review by
We booked Liam Byrne as our wedding singer/entertainment act and he was absolutely fantastic. We all laughed so much our jaw muscles were aching the next day. He is such a lovely man with an amazing voice. Everyone enjoyed the craic. Liam even carried on singing when our older guests retired for the night and there were only 4 of us left. We would recommend Liam for any event and hope to hear him sing again in the future.
Response from Liam Byrne
Hello Linda & John. Firstly, thank you for a lovely night up in Turin Castle. I often say that a small wedding can be just as much craic as a big one, and yours proved that...we had a good night indeed. Thanks also for the ''tent of peace'' between the orange one and the green one...I slept like a log. Hope to see you in Ballycastle sometime... Best o' luck for now, Liam.

We booked Liam for for a BBQ for day 2 of our wedding on July 7th. We cannot recommend him highly enough!! Guests are still talking about him and asking for his details. His performance was energetic throughout, despite the fact he was standing in blistering sun on the day! He really made the day into something special and we couldn't be happier we booked him. He was so accommodating on the day when we had to make a last minute change as well and got the crowd really into his set, which is a credit to him on a day 2 session!
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Rachel. Well firstly thank you for having me playon day 2 of your wedding at The Glenview. Secondly, and more importantly, thank you for asking me to set up right beside the Heineken tap...It had a very positive effect on my performance!! Only joking of coarse. It was a pleasure to play for you all. See ye soon again. Liam.
Review by
Singer, songwriter, genius, comedian are just some of words to describe Liam Byrne. From the moment we were planning the wedding Liam Byrne was on the list. Liam played day 2 of our wedding in beautiful setting of the Armada Hotel in Spanish Point Co Clare on the 24th of June 2018. What a night of entertainment. He connected with every single guest both young and old at the wedding. He had them laughing, singing and dancing all night. The crowd did not want him to stop. Really meant a lot to have Liam play and is something that my wife and I will remember for the rest of our lives. People will never look at Prime Time on RTE in the same way after listening to Liam’s song about Miriam O Callaghan (The ballad of Miriam O Callaghan). I couldn’t recommend Liam enough. Thanks for making it a night to remember. Enda and Shóna
Response from Liam Byrne
Enda, Shóna and your great friends and family’s... it was a super night and one we will all remember I think. Just one of those nights that turned to gold right from the get go... you wouldn’t see a few hours slipping by. I had a blast... thanks for your kind words above... the pleasure was all mine. See ye in Confey.., ‘hon the Lillies. X

We saw Liam performing at a friend's wedding a few years ago and instantly thought of him for our own. Liam provided the entertainment for Day 2 evening time and was a huge hit. He knew how to keep the songs in line with the mood, and so as the sore heads began to clear from the night before, he raised the tempo and had everyone on the floor dancing the night away! He plays a great selection and variety of songs for all guests and throws in a few good jokes too to keep everyone entertained. Thanks again Liam for making our special weekend so memorable.
Review by
We had Liam play for our second day in Kilkenny, he had played at all of our friends weddings so we knew he was a class act! He didn't disappoint, he had the place hopping from the first song he played until the last! He really knows how to get the crowd going! We've since seen him at another friends wedding and I'm sure there will be more to come but every time hes brilliant!
Review by
Liam played the night after our wedding on June 3 at Brooklodge who recommended him highly to us! From our first conversation when we booked him, he was so friendly and down to earth that we knew he would give us a great session for the following day celebrations and that's exactly what he did! Liam is an absolute gent and to say he is some entertainer is an understatement!! While being a class singer, he is also so funny and witty and engages with everyone during songs and in between and really gets the crowd going as he is a pro at reading them! Thanks so much for a great night Liam, it was so much fun!! You really topped off our weekend and hope to see you again in Brooklodge some time soon! Georgie & Scott :)
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Georgie & Scott. Brooklodge is always special but your wedding was one of those that i will always remember. It was just one of those nights that took off from minute one and we were all up for the craic. Thank you for your lovely review and indeed for having me as part of wedding entertainment.
Review by
We heard of Liam through a recommendation from a friend who had a small wedding no more than 50 guests. My friend like me wanted to create an atmosphere at a small wedding and for the musician to get a sense of the evening and go with it, both allowing the guests to chat comfortably and cater for those who like to tap the feet and have a dance...this is exactly what Liam delivered on the night and we were thrilled. He can really gauge how the night is going and lean to the guests, brilliant with requests too. Liam is absolutely fantastic for a small wedding we didn't even have a dance floor and the guests found the space they needed. We don't mean to limit Liam to a small wedding, we'd say he's absolutely fantastic either way, Thanks again Liam....you made our night very special indeed, Mar & Shane
Response from Liam Byrne
Marianne and Shane. Thank you for your kind words above. They are much appreciated. Yourselves and your guests were a very easy audience to play for. Everyone was really into my setlist for the night and I like to think I had something for everyone on the night. I hope we will meet again soon. In the meantime, I wish you continued health and happiness. Liam.

Liam is a legend. He played the second day of our wedding in the Kilashee snug and everyone loved him. From initial contact I knew Liam was the lad for us. He had the Craic with our guests and was patient when having half of our crowd up singing. He was amazing and I would definitely hire him for any other event I have in the future no question about it. He has an amazing voice and a fantastic personality. Liam thanks for the laughs. Especially "living in a field in Avoca" Much Love
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Lynne. Thanks for your review..twas a great night indeed. Hope you are settling back in Ireland well after your time in San Fran....We will do it all again sometime i hope. Thanks again, Liam.

Hi John & Muirna. Thank you for your lovely message and for having me as your wedding singer in Radisson Blu St.Helens. The lads gave you a great introduction!!

We had Liam play at the second day of our wedding. I cannot praise Liam enough. From the moment he started he had everyone up dancing and got the whole crowd going. (I thought it would be hard to get the crowd going as most of them had been up until 5am the previous night/morning! ) Liam was absolutely superb, playing up to date songs and also some classics. Everything from folk to pop, he was just outstanding. If you want a lively party for the day after your wedding, book this man! He will not disappoint!
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Linda & John. I hope you are both well. Thank you for that lovely review today...I really appreciate it. Thank you for having me the day after your wedding..I enjoyed it as much as yourselves. I hope ye had a super honeymoon in Canada...It was beautiful at this time of year I'm sure. Hopefully we will meet again sometime..Either here or maybe Oz!! Thanks again..Liam.

Liam really made the second day of our wedding. He was really top notch. Played and unbelievable set from Christy Moore, the Boss and his witty originals a long with many others. He was able to pick out moments in the crowd and make the most out of them. He really does have the knack for the craic!!!! I would highly recommend him.
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Paul. Thank you for your booking and for your kind review. ''Knack for the Craic''...I think we all had the knack that night tbh. It was a blasht as they say out Wesht. Until next time...

I hope the gang over from Oz had a great time...I'm sure they did.See you at the next big day out!! Liam Oh...and thank you for the review also. X
Review by
We hired Liam to play for us the day after our wedding in Acton's Bar. After reading and hearing so many great reviews we knew we where going to get a great singer but when you hire Liam you get more than that as he's a pure entertainer. From the moment Liam started we knew we where in for a great night and one we won't forget. The Ballad of Miriam O'Callaghan and Weekend In Amsterdam are two songs of many that we all still talk about, pure class. If you're up for the craic this is the man for. You won't be disappointed!!
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi you two. Actons was electric that night..and it is with thanks to you and your guests that that gig will live a long time in my memory. We kicked off with ''Rhinestone Cowboy'' and as soon as Tucker joined in with his brown suede shoes that was that!! 4 hours of pure pleasure and banter and craic..Thank you.

Liam was fantastic from start to finish. I would highly recommend him for any event. We had him for the day after our wedding and he accommodated every ones tastes from up to date music to the oldies and country. Such fun and great craic. ;)

Liam played at the 2nd night of our wedding at Coolbawn Quay in July. He was absolutely brilliant, such a character, great crowd interaction, didn’t mind people getting up and singing and he would play along with them Super night everyone still talking about how good he was. We will certainly be getting Liam again for any occasions we have in the future Thanks a million Liam , Catherine and Colin

Liam provided the entertainment for our guests arriving at the reception of our wedding on the 1st of July last, he was entertaining from the get-go, and very flexible and accommodating on the lead up to the wedding. He's damn good! so good that he had people dancing as the guests arrived(pre-reception) for gods sake, kids and all. A true entertainer, value for money and an all around gent. Will definitely be booking him again for future events.
Response from Liam Byrne
Hey you two. Thanks for the review and for having me as your drinks reception entertainment at The Upton Court. Ye both looked amazing and our guests were in flying form. I'm glad the car worked out for ye!!! Just one question though...What ever happened to the high Nellie bike that was outside??? See ye soon, Liam.
Review by
What can I say, Liam is just a fantastic entertainer. He had everyone up dancing and was very interactive with all the guests. He has such a wide range of songs and was always happy to play anything you asked. If you want a musician who can chat with the crowd, have everyone laughing and entertain all ages then liam is the perfect choice. Liam you were fantastic and made our day so special and personal. Thank you so much! Caroline and Rory
Response from Liam Byrne
Hey you two...Sure it was a great venue, a lovely night, the moon was out and the stars shone bright!! I had a couple of pretty hand special guests up to the mic and sure what could possibly have gone wrong!!! Thanks a mill for the review...Dont be strangers now..Liam.
Review by
Liam played for our 25th wedding anniversary on 13th May. He is a friend and neighbour and an absolute gentleman. His professionalism and attention to detail was lovely. I knew when booking Liam that I would have no worries whatsoever. He helped us and gave us advise with regard to venue as we had a small party of 67. His selection of music on the night was lovely taking into account our love of Bruce Springsteen. He even had no trouble allowing our son to play his guitar twice during the night. Everyone commented on how great he was looking after everyone's taste. Thank you Liam. John & Ann Hall.
Review by
We booked Liam To sing at our church ceremony and at our day 2 party. Living not too far from us he offered to call to our house to help us choose church songs. While at our house he spotted one of our "save the date" cards which had the words "two hands, two hearts, one love" wrote on it... he took those words with him and wrote a song, with those words as the title, and sang it at our wedding as a surprise. It was just top class and a lovely touch. As for day 2... it was just a night we will never forget. A great buzz all night and having Liam play just finished off our wedding with a bang.

Dear Liam,Thank you for an amazing night of music , dancing and laughter. You were fantastic . You even managed to get people who never dance up on the floor.I loved .Sorry for keeping you so long and even when you went people were souring for " one more song" - many many thanks for making our night so special.
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Phil, Joe and family. Thank you for inviting me to perform at your party in Radisson Blu. It was a great night and I enjoyed every second of it. I hope we will meet again at another "doo!!"

Response from Liam Byrne
Lindsay...Thanks a mill for the review sir. I was a bit apprehensive about playing solo in such a big room but it worked out great..The craic was 90 and your guests were really up for it. Thanks for the booking and the great night out...Liam.

We have been fans of Liam for years so when it came to planning our wedding we didn't have to think twice about who we wanted to provide our entertainment. Luckily Liam was free on the date we had picked for the wedding. Our venue was The Wicklow Brewery which was an ideal setting for a performer like Liam. He sang and played a few songs during our drinks reception and he was tucked away in the corner subtly drifting the tunes around the bar. While for the evening entertainment he blasted out tune after tune in the beer hall - different music from earlier. The dance floor was full all night and our guests raved about Liam, not only for his singing and guitar playing skills but for his wit, charm and comedy! We continued the party late into the night and Liam also provided us with DJ for the last couple of hours which meant all of our music needs for our wedding were met by one amazing man! He was very responsive to all of our needs and during any communication everything was laid back and no problem for Liam which put us at ease! Thank you Liam! You really made our day even more memorable than it already was and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you!
Response from Liam Byrne
Oh what a day....Where to begin?? Firstly..what a venue, The Wicklow Brewery...and it suited you both so well and I hope my music on the day (and there was alot of it!) reflected this in a positive way. As for my ''DJ''set..I'm no David Guetta but I'd give Larry Gogan a run for his money. Thank you both for a lovely day...Playing for you and guests was not work..it was a pleasure.

We booked Liam for a small wedding party of 23 people and it couldn't have worked out any better. We spent so long looking online for someone suitable and we kept coming back to Liam because he ticked all the boxes for us. He was very professional from the moment we first touched base with him and he did everything he said he would. Nothing was a problem for him and he is up for the craic too. He even humoured us on the night with our very own "singers"!!!! The only thing was the night went way to fast! Maybe we will have to have an anniversary party next September ;) Thank you so much Liam for making our night thoroughly enjoyable.

Denise and Grace. Two nicer people I dont think I have ever met. It was an honour to play misic for you both in Galway and I wish you so many happy years together as a married couple. Thank you for your kind review. Liam.

We had a small wedding of approx 20 people in Brooklodge. We asked Liam to play a set up in the little pub on the grounds that night. We had lots of songs we knew and sang along to (some of us behind the mic) and some funny ones we didn't expect from Liam. He got the place laughing and dancing. Liam was courteous and professional in the lead up and good craic on the night. Really good singer and guitar player with a great repertoire of crowd pleasing songs. Thanks Liam.

My daughter and son-in-law wanted to get married in Ireland and so we booked BrookLodge for the event, which was an excellent choice on our parts. We booked Liam to top the evening off and he had a bunch of folks from various parts of the U.S. tapping their toes and singing along with a number of favorite and familiar songs as well as attempting to sing along with those that were much less familiar. He is an accomplished musician with a great voice who interacts beautifully with his audience. Liam garnered rave reviews from quite a varied American audience. If only he lived on this side of the pond.....

We booked liam for the second night of our wedding in the woodlands house hotel in adare co limerick.he had played at my cousins wedding last year and we loved him so booked him that night. He is just fantastic and interacts so well with the crowd and is a great musician and a really nice guy. The dancefloor was full all night which is hard on the second night of wedding because people are wrecked but he got everyone going. All my family and friends loved him and he made our wedding weekend.
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Brenda and Ger. Thank you very much for having me as your post wedding party entertainment. You had a good lively crowd and that always makes the job easier. After the dancing we had a great singsong down at the back of the room so there was plenty of banter and craic later on in the night also. 'Twas a late one????????. See ye at the next one!!! Liam.

Had Liam for a bash the day after our wedding in a local pub bear the seafield hotel and had a ball. I nearly preferred the second day, great music and he really got everyone involved! Everybody commented how fantastic he was and my only regret was not getting him for my drink reception music the day of my wedding! Best money I spent!

Hi everybody. We booked Liam for our post wedding party. We had our wedding in Wexford and the next day we had a bar b q for about 50 people. Liam came recommended to us by a friend of ours and we were not disappointed!! We were expecting some background music but what we got was another great night for our friends and family. Liam had us singing, dancing and especially laughing... He's a funny guy with a great audience rapport. He played for 3 hours and we just didn't want the night to end!! He was also very accommodating as some of my family play guitar and sing and he had no problem handing over the mic and his guitar. He really turned our wedding day into a wedding weekend and we couldn't recommend him enough. Thank Liam. Sinead and Tom
Response from Liam Byrne
Hello Sinead and Tom. 'Twas a pleasure performing at you party. Your uncle is a fine guitarist... Even with a few in him!!... I'm so glad the sun came out for ye in the sunny south east. Tell Tom if he ever nabs me speeding on the M50 he owes me one!!! See ye again!!

We booked Liam after a friend recommended him for our wedding afters party in Gorey. He didn't disappoint, Liam played a brilliant mix of lively tunes to keep the tired heads and legs going from the night before. He kept the "craic" going by engaging with the crowd and he added to the banter with his own great sense of humour. Liam was very accommodating as he played all our requests and made everyone feel welcome. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the night and complimented us about the entertainment, we were delighted with him and cannot recommend him highly enough.

We booked Liam from this site for our wedding in April 2016, we wanted someone who could play at the ceremony, afternoon tea reception and after dinner, that is a lot to ask as it involves all different styles of music from one artist but Liam played a blinder and did a fantastic job of all three ! We requested some music that Liam had to learn for the ceremony it was great to walk down the isle hand in hand with my future husband humming along to I want to hold your hand (TV Carpio version) it took the nerves away and had us both relaxed, and there wasn't a dry eye in the house when Liam played songbird by Eva Cassidy. Everyone was commenting on it after the ceremony. Our wedding was a small one with 26 adults and 11 kids but Liam played something for everyone and had us all up dancing well into the night. We can honestly say the music was perfect for all three occasions in one, Liam is fantastic value for money and fit right into our day and our family. Thank you so much Liam and best wishes, hopefully we will catch a gig again soon.

We booked Liam for the day after our wedding and I cannot recommend him highly enough! Liam is professional in every way and a pleasure to deal with. He went above and beyond to ensure our guests had a fantastic night. They are still talking about him!! We sang and danced until the early hours!! What an entertainer! Thanks Liam!!
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Dan and Grainne. Thanks for your review and also for having me in Mullingar for DAY 2 of your wedding. It was great fun with ye all and one if the highlights of this years calendar so far. Your friends from the States were mighty and sure I'd have made it home to Wexford much sooner only I was chatting to them half the night????????. I believe there are a few other family weddings on the way.. So I'm sure we will meet again, dont know where, don't know when...........

We booked Liam for my sister hen in Coolbawn Quay. From the word go, he was professional and lovely to deal with. He was absolutely fabulous on the night. Everyone was on the dance floor and he allowed people to join him in the signing which was great. Before he left he even got the sing song going. Would definitely have no problem recommending Liam for any future gig. Thanks so much for helping to ensure my sister had a great night.
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Teresa. Well after 20 years of performing, your night was the first time I ever played exclusively for a hen night..and I'm hoping it'll be the first of many because it was such a super night. I enjoyed the craic as much as you all did. Coolbawn Quay was fantastic too. Such a lovely place and well worth making the drive from Wexford. Thanks for having me as your entertainment and your lovely family and great friends were a pleasure to be in the company of. Enjoy the wedding in April.

Liam would be an entertainer whom you would love to keep to yourself. We had Liam at our private function and with great reluctance I was telling all the guests who he was.. His professionalism, reliability,and utter brilliance in his performance made our evening great. Every guest was on a high from the energy from Liam and as one guest said its so good to be able to sit and listen to great music and not having to talk. Thanks again.
Response from Liam Byrne
Hello Vera and David. Thanks for the kind words and more importantly thank you for inviting me to play at your recent party. It was worth getting the boat from Athlone to play in Crossmolina.!! Lynotts was a step back in time and a very welcome one. Next time though I'll wait till mass is over before I arrive!! David.. Thanks for the butcher joke.. I've been telling it at gigs.. It's going down like a tender rib eye steak from your shop, served with pepper sauce on the side????????????. Next time I'm in Castlebar Vera, I'll be in to get my colour done????. Thanks again for having me. Up Mayo.

We happened to come across Liam on Weddings Online as we were looking for entertainment for the reception drinks. We both liked traditional Irish music and Liam's website had such a large repertoire. From the moment we contacted Liam he was lovely to deal with, he really listened to what we wanted and was very flexible and easy to deal with. Our guests and myself and my husband were blown away by Liam's singing and guitar playing. He had the guests up dancing and enjoying themselves from the minute he started playing. He was so courteous, taking requests from the guests and gave it 110%. We felt so blessed to have Liam as part of our wedding day. It was without a doubt one of the highlights and our guests said it was the best wedding reception drinks they had attended. Overall, we couldn't have been happier with our choice of Liam and would highly recommend him.
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Lisa and David. Thank for your lovely review and also for having me as part of your wedding entertainment. It was my first visit to Bellingham Castle and I really enjoyed performing for you and your guests. Glad I could play all the requests and it was great to see everyone out dancing BEFORE dinner!! I hope the rest of the day was as enjoyable.. Thanks again for having me.. See you again soon fingers crossed.

Straight up, Liam Byrne is a talented musician, a professional service provider, and a lovely man. We found Liam Byrne on this website and, based on the reviews, gave him a call. From the first Liam was just lovely to deal with; professional and friendly. After a few emails, Liam and I arranged to meet at a hotel. We had a chat and he even played me a few tunes! It was lovely and really made me confident that he was the man for us! Our wedding was a small affair (only about 40 people) and in a small room in the Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin. We were limited to space and time, as the hotel required music to be over by 10pm and it had to be acoustic. Liam had no problems with any of that and caught the vibe of our wedding no problem. I love the soft, folky, rock tone to Liam's voice... it suited the laid back, intimate vibe we wanted for our wedding. I've no doubt though that Liam has the personality to get a big crowd going too, and actually I think it is sometimes harder with a small crowd, but all our guests thought he was brill! Also Liam had no problem with the couple of songs we emailed him prior to the wedding. Would we recommend him? 100% Yes!

Liam was AMAZING from the first phonecall, we met up and chatted about my choices some tradition some not so and he was great at guiding me through those choices until we found the perfect ones for us!such a personalised service you get with Liam so friendly professional and welcoming! Liam you actually made our day amazing and unforgettable, l couldn't recommend you enough

I had a blast myself!! Miss Summer McDonagh ( what a cool name to have) was indeed the star of the night... She never left the floor.. A 6 year old whom loves the oldies.. Great shtuff!! See ye all soon again I hope.. Thanks for the kind words above... Liam.

What can I say - Liam Byrne was one of the Best decisions made throughout our wedding preparations, we are eternally grateful to him for making our wedding celebrations so special on the night. He is the real mc coy when it comes to singing, banter, music and he is an all round entertainer. He is top class I can only say if I have any celebrations in the future I would only consider Liam Byrne for the booking & would even opt to change the dates to ensure I'd have him at the doo! Seriously we did not leave the dance floor and the groom even cried with laughter at Liam's story telling. The group would like to send many thanks to him and the Bride and Groom Vanessa & Michael thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. Will see you again in October please god.
Response from Liam Byrne
Hi Michael and Vanessa. Thanks for having me as your wedding entertainment. It was a great night and I enjoyed the company of you and your guests. They love the craic and so that made my job a lot easier!! See he at the next night out in October.. Up Wexford!

Liam was fantastic. Everybody loved him. We went for a very relaxed wedding and Liam was perfect for the occasion! He done our ceremony and our bbq afterwards. He played everything anyone asked him to do and played it well. We were delighted with him and we would recommend him to anyone

I first came across Liam Byrne on Weddings online when we were on the search for entertainment for our post wedding celebrations/BBQ. I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions we made. From the initial point of contact I found Liam to be extremely friendly, professional and upmost helpful. We have been so impressed with Liam –we have since booked him for other events and he has somewhat travelled part of the country with us..... from our sten night in Cavan, Post wedding celebrations in Lough Eske Castle, Donegal, My Parents 40th wedding anniversary in the Station House, Kilmessan, Co. Meath, to my husbands upcoming 40th birthday Party in Ballyconnell, Cavan – Needless to say I think that somewhat speaks for itself – Liam, is an extremely talented musician who can read the crowd perfectly and can cater for all guests from 20 years old right up to 90 Years….. Providing plenty of interaction and banter with the guests. I have had numerous enquiries from friends as to “who was your man with the guitar” and would obviously 100% recommend you to them all!!
Review by
Liam was absolutely brilliant on the night.From the moment he started to play at our wedding guests were on the dance floor.He even tolerated (to quote him)"The worst singing he ever heard" from the groom.He kept the crowd entertained all night with his great selection of music and was a pleasure to deal with from the start.We cannot recommend him highly enough.

Liam, just wanted to drop a quick note to say thank you so much for being part of our wedding! We had a second day session in the bar onsite and Liam came along to keep the partying going! Well the craic was 90!! Liam is a fantastic singer, reads the crowd perfectly and got everyone from 70 - 20 singing and dancing along! You were a pleasure to deal with and so friendly and accommodating. Everyone has been raving about the night ever since. We had a ball, thanks again for coming to Tipp and I'm sure we'll have you at another party in the near future! Triona & Shane

We recently had the pleasure of Liam playing at our wedding, Liam was undoubtedly courteous and professional right throughout the day from singing at the civil ceremony and then entertaining them in the pre-dinner lounge where he had everyone up dancing before the dinner. My guests are still talking about how great Liam was he was an outstanding singer and entertainer. I would highly recommended Liam as incredible asset to anyone ‘Special Day’.

Liam played the 2nd night of our wedding in BrookLodge. From the first contact Liam so so easy to deal with. As it was the second night and after a pretty heavy session the night before everyone was pretty hungover but within minutes of Liam playing he had the crowd going. He is not just an extremely talented singer but he is also an entertainer and made the night so personal interacting with the guests throughout. He never even took a break and he played or hours. He made our second night one to remember. We would one hundred percent recommend Liam Byrne for any occasion especially if you want great music and great craic!!

We booked Liam for our wedding reception and from start to finish he was a joy to deal with. We were living in the UK so had to arrange everything over the phone or by email and nothing was ever too much trouble for Liam. We had a small wedding with a mixed age group and nationalities and Liam catered for everyone, friends and family that traveled from as far as New Zealand still talk about the unique style of entertainer Liam is. He can sing anything and builds a fantastic rapport with the whole crowd young or old! We would highly recommend Liam for any occasion.

Jason and I booked Liam for our wedding at Sean Óg's hotel in Wexford on Valentine's night 2014. We had 120 guests but having seen Liam play on many occasions we knew he was more than capable of entertaining everyone on the night. We had also been a guest at a few weddings where Liam was playing and he had all the guests enjoying themselves and dancing to his tunes. We had guests of all ages and Liam defiantly had something for everyone, from classic Irish to modern hits. We had a few songs requested and Liam delivered them perfectly. Liam is not only an excellent singer/musician, he is also so full of life and this shines through in his music. He is personable on and off stage and we would have no hesitation recommending Liam for any occasion.

Omg what can I say, these guys were the making of our wedding celebrations, I've never met someone so passionate about what they do as Liam, his energy is infectious, we put the most research into getting the band right and these guys are top notch but what really made it for us was how Liam interacts with the crowd, he's just Amazing. And so funny unbeknownst to me my sister booked him for her wedding and he remembered us 7 years on.....he was every bit as good and as full of energy. We hadn't a clue what first dance to go for and Liam sang down the phone to me with suggestions....we went with Take That the greatest day :) Thank you so so so much Liam for what was most definitely the greatest day :)
Review by
Liam, myself and my new hubs just wanted to take 5 minutes to express our most sincerest thanks. I could not have asked for more at our wedding, the whole performance was so perfectly personal and to us, it was quite simply perfect. We have had so many compliments on our choice of entertainment at our wedding we could not possibly recommend you highly enough. So while we cannot express how much ourselves and our guests enjoyed the night, 3 hours on the dance floor, a hoarse voice and very sore feet are probably quite testament enough!!
Review by
Liam, thanks so much for a great session last Sunday night! We didn't think we had it in us after the late night at the wedding but who couldn't get up and dance to you playing! You got the crowd going and everyone was raving about how great you were! Don't know how u managed to keep it going for some many hours!!! You will come highly recommended by us!! Thanks again!

Liam is an absolute pleasure to deal with and always gets the crowd going. The feedback every time from Corporate groups and Weddings is always the same – “Fantastic”, “Brilliant” and I could go on. In the last 7 days, he has been booked for a high end Corporate event and for a Wedding. As usual, the same response was had. Liam is so consistent – he delivers above and beyond every time. I would have no hesitation in recommending Liam for any event – guaranteed to have the crowd rocking in no time!

Liam Byrne, we are speechless! (well, not entirely - read on......!) Apologies for long email but I am on such a high.Your set was unbelievable and we can't believe you played for so long. We had serious Christy Moore fans in the house, one of whom was an Englishman on his first trip to Ireland (I'm sure he was talking to you - he was so impressed). The Jumbo Breakfast Roll was hilarious and the few people who hadn't heard it before were in stitches laughing... Rathlin Bog was also hilarious (I messed up the words every time except on the last verse and was dead pleased with myself when I got that one right!!!! 'Yer man on the phone' has it all on record!!!)As soon as you started playing the first few chords of the Green and Red of Mayo, we knew it was going to be an epic night - and what a night it was!!!We (and all of our guests) couldn't believe you played for so long and such a variety of songs! (David loved the Springsteen numbers).So glad the other 6 members of the band never showed up! Hahaha! We had a massive Begley Noone singsong the next night in Ballindine. We didn't leave the pub until 5 o clock in the morning. Everything from 'Sonny don't go away' to 'Only Our Rivers' to 'Living next door to Alice' was sung (and of course the name Alice was aptly replaced with "Aisling! - Aisling! - who the ____ is Aisling?!" I think your set definitely had an influence on everyone the next night. Thank you so much for helping to make it the best night ever. Tom Hennigan's Heritage centre is a very special place for me and my family as we played trad music here when we were kids for visitors to the centre over the years and we never left the place without a massive smile on our faces. Saturday night was no exception! No one can throw a party like Tom. I hope you got a tour of the place. I'm sure it won't be the last time you're there - he asked me for your number yesterday. A special thanks for playing 'Ride On' for Damien. It brought tears to our eyes but meant so much to all of us. He was there with us in spirit. Hope to see you again soon,

What can we say only - Liam is a legend! He played for our post wedding BBQ in Brooklodge and was absolutely AMAZING!! The whole wedding was fantastic but Liam was the icing on the cake! He sang, joked, told stories and his ability to capture the crowd was second to none! Everyone sang, listened, laughed, danced and engaged with him......and are still raving about him. An outstanding singer and entertainer and we would highly recommend Liam. You will not be disappointed! He is superb. Liam, we can not find the words to thank you enough for making our night so special!

Hi Liam, Just wanted to send an email to thank you for the late night entertainment that you provided in the TackRoom for our wedding. It was a super way to continue on the night and everyone throughly enjoyed the experience. You created a great atmosphere and great energy all night. I'm sure you noticed that people didnt really head to bed until you finished at 3am! Both Paul and I were absolutely thrilled with the night and that was very much down to you. Everyone is still commenting on you and a few have asked for your number. So once again thank you very much. Warmest wishes,

Thanks so much again - we would get hitched again just to have you to each other obviously!
