My name is Sinead Walshe and I’m a singer and harpist based in Dublin who travels nationwide. I have been in the professional industry for over 20 years, starting out as resident harpist in Dromoland Castle, then singing with the Bunratty singers and now in the last few years travelling nationwide to perform at various weddings and events.

I cover most styles of music including classical, hymns, folk, Irish ballads, contemporary and modern. I sing and accompany myself on the harp, but as every event is unique, I can arrange to bring in other musicians if required. Music is my passion and I love nothing more than working with couples to come up with musical choices that makes their day that little bit extra personal and special to them and their guests. I have a huge selections of songs, just drop me a line and I can send you my latest repertoire which I am adding to all the time. 

I also perform quite regularly at masses for St Johns Church in Ballinteer, Dublin 16. If you would like to hear me live, don’t hesitate to get in contact with me to find out dates and times.

I offer competitive prices and have packages to include your ceremony and drinks reception combined at a reduced rate.

I believe my client testimonials will assure you that you are making the right decision in choosing me as your musician for your special day, so feel free to check out my latest client testimonials on my facebook or my website.

We had Sinead Walsh play at our ceremony in Druids Glen Hotel in February. From the first contact with Sinead, we knew we made the right choice. Sinead did an absolutely amazing job playing our song choices, it gave all our guests goosebumps and they are still singing her praise! Sinead is so helpful and guided us throughout our planning and helped us decide on our music, when we most needed it! We would highly recommend booking Sinead, you will definitely not be disappointed!! Sinead, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are amazing!

We booked Sinead for our ceremony and post ceremony music and it was beautiful, she is an amazing person, harpist and singer, She has a massive repertoire of songs that she can do and also happy to learn new songs if you give her enough time, the harp is very relaxing and all the guests loved her saying the music was beautiful, Communication was excellent from the start as we were arranging from Australia, coordinated directly with our celebrant for us.

Sinead was professional from the get go. We had a conservative priest marrying us who was quite particular on what music we chose. Sinead constantly communicated with us, providing recommendations and suggestions. I’ll never forget hearing Sinead sing Ave Maria as I walked up the church with my dad on my wedding day. Everyone remarked how stunning she sounded. Thank you again Sinead for making our mass unforgettable.

Sinead was wonderful! Really responsive and easy to communicate with. She went ahead and planned a repertoire for us as we were a bit frantic getting all of our final details in order, which was so appreciated. Her harp playing is beautiful and definitely added such a nice touch to ceremony and drinks reception atmosphere - guests all loved it. Would highly recommend Sinead!

There is simply not enough words to express how happy myself and my husband were with Sinead's beautiful performance on our wedding day. Sinead sang for our ceremony and reception. We were blown away by her voice. Not only is Sinead so talented she also was so accomadating in tailor making her own version of a few songs we wanted that were not on her repertoire at the time when we booked. This meant so much to us. Once again I cannot thank you enough Sinead, Lesley & Paul.
Response from Sinead Walshe Harpist and Singer
Ahhh thank you Lesley and Paul. Thanks to you guys I have 2 great Fleetwood Mac songs now added to my repertoire. I loved coming up with the arrangement for them, especially Everywhere. Every time I play it I will be reminded of you guys. Wishing you both all the very very best for the future and nothing but happiness in the years ahead xxx

I hired Sinead to play at our wedding ceremony and drinks reception in November and was not disappointed. Sinead has the most amazing voice and is such lovely person to deal with. She was more than happy to learn new material if we required it and was really helpful when we asked for suggestions. A lot of my guests were asking where I had found Sinead as they thought she was as amazing as we did. Would highly recommend.
Response from Sinead Walshe Harpist and Singer
Ahhh thank you Amanda and Mark for this lovely review. Delighted that you were happy with the music and wishing you both all the best for the future xx

Sinead was wonderful to deal with. So professional, prompt with her responses and very willing to learn some new pieces for our wedding. Add to that a beautiful voice and excellent harpist ... we'd happily recommend Sinead, her music and singing greatly enhanced our ceremony.

Thanks Christine & Louis for those lovely comments, I really appreciate that. It was such a pleasure to be a part of your day. Wishing you both all the very best for the future. xx

Sinead played at the ceremony of our wedding and afterwards for the drinks reception before dinner. I had heard some of Sinead's work prior to selecting her and was blown away. But to hear it in person was just magical. Sinead has the most beautiful, elegant voice and she plays the harp with such grace. Prior to the wedding we had asked her to play a few particular songs which she had not played before. She learned how to play them and she was genuinely excited to learn them! We were so thrilled with how it all came together. Our guests were raving about her. Thank you Sinead for making our wedding so special. I would HIGHLY recommend Sinead.
Response from Sinead Walshe Harpist and Singer
Ahhh thanks Sandra for that gorgeous review, I really appreciate it and I just loved being a part of your day, it was just very special. I have already sung a few of the songs that I learned for your wedding at some drinks receptions and a bride has asked me to play "I'll Always Remember us this way" at her ceremony after hearing it (Which I just love singing by the way, so I have you to think for all of that).Wishing you and Jean all the best for the future - Come back to Ireland soon xx

We had Sinead play and sing for our wedding at the Drimnagh Castle early in September and she was absolutely wonderful to work with!! We came all the way from the U.S., however, I had no doubt that she would be brilliant when it came time for the ceremony to start. She learned a new song for our big day and I can't thank her enough. Communicating over emails was super easy- she was definitely quick to respond. I highly highly recommend her! :)

I just want to say a HUGE thank you. You were incredible and blew me away! You have the most incredible talents and you made our ceremony so special.Thank you for learning Halo and singing it, that’s was such an amazing surprise to walk down the aisle to. Our priest Fr Declan said your singing was the nicest he has ever heard at a wedding in 40years! We had the most amazing day. And thank you for being a part of it. I hope you got back to Dublin safely.Thank you again, lots of ppl were asking who you were so I’ll be sure to pass on your details to them!

"Sinead performed at our wedding recently. From the very first moment we heard her sing and play the harp we knew we found our musician for the day. Sinead was such a pleasure to work with, no suggestion to difficult and in fact she learned and played two songs for us BEAUTIFULLY. Not only did the music set the tone at the ceremony, she entertained the guests for the following three hours. She added a touch of class and elegance and really helped make the day the special day it was. Thank you so much Sinead, I would highly recommend Sinead Walshe for any event that requires a great musician and a beautiful vocalist."

We worked with Sinead ahead of our wedding from abroad and she made the entire process (an 8 hour time difference) seamless and pleasant. We were so lucky to have her be a part of our wedding day as her music was so beautiful and the perfect accompaniment to our ceremony. We were so happy to have been recommended Sinead by our wedding planner and would also recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing harp player and singer for their event.

Sinead played for our wedding at the end of august in Kerry. from the first email Sinead was so professional and fast responding. Sinead had no hesitation in learning chasing cars for us and it was so special on the day to hear it. Every guest praised Sinead's music and couldn't stop talking about how the music set the romantic tone for the day. Words could not describe how beautiful and melodic Sinead's music is. Thank you Sinead you really made our day special.

Sinead performed at our wedding in August and she was amazing. We would highly recommend her. She has a beautiful voice and is truly professional at what she does. She was so helpful in lead up to the wedding, helping us plan our ceremony and pick our songs. Sinead arrived early and set an amazing atmosphere as guest arrived and through out the ceremony. Thank you for being part of our special day.

We had Sinead as our wedding singer and harpist for both our ceremony and our reception at Celbridge Manor Hotel in August 2019. She was absolutely brilliant! She responded very quickly to any questions we had which helped us massively because we were planning our wedding from abroad. She has a large collection of songs available and she even added in one other song which we really wanted for our ceremony. She has a beautiful voice and she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I’d definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding singer!

Sinéad was a pleasure to deal with and was very professional. The music was lovely in the church and all of our guests commented afterwards on the beautiful harp music during the ceremony. The repertoire was great and Sinéad did her best to accommodate any of my requests. I would definitely recommend to any couple for their ceremony music.

Sinead did an excellent job singing and playing harp for our wedding in August. She even learned a song for us. She added so much to the church ceremony, and her voice just made it all magical! She was very patient with us too as we were planning our wedding from overseas. Thank you, Sinead, you were amazing.

Sinead is an amazingly talented harpist and singer and such a lovely person to deal with. She played and sang at our wedding ceremony and drinks reception. Sinead made our day even more special as she learned a new song for the processional, which meant so much to us. Our guests are still talking about Sinead and complimenting our choice of music for our very special day! We would highly recommend Sinead to anyone looking for a musician for their wedding. Thanks so much Sinead, Enda & Mary, xx

Sinead really made our wedding ceremony and reception magical with her wonderful singing and harp playing. She was so flexible and accommodating, she learnt to play a song by a Japanese composer, "path of the wind" at our request, and it was truly breathtaking walking down the aisle to her amazing rendition of this piece. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to add something truly special and memorable to their day.

I found Sinead to be a very amiable and an accommodating person. Myself and Susan really appreciated the effort she put into learning Susan's chosen musical pieces. One of which, Lana Del Rays Video Games we are told has become a firm favorite within her vast repertoire. Everyone remarked on how moving her musical interludes during our ceremony were. If you would like to add a touch of class to your own wedding day then look no further than Sinead.

Sinead played at our Wedding in June for the church and also the drinks reception. The church atmosphere she created with her amazing music and singing was unforgettable. she is a true professional at her job.

"Sinead played and sang at our wedding in May and she was amazing. Not only is she a wonderful harpist and talented singer (we received lots of compliments from our guests) by she was also an excellent communicator and put me completely at ease when organizing the layout of the music/songs for our ceremony. She enthusiastically agreed to learn a new piece that I requested for my entrance music, which she played absolutely beautifully - above and beyond what I had hoped for. I couldn’t recommend her enough! Thank you Sinead!"

Sinead recently played at our wedding ceremony in St Mochta's Church and we couldn't have found a better musician and singer for the occasion! Sinead was so lovely to work with from the beginning and really helpful with the choice of hymns as I wasn't aware of what was played at church weddings here in Ireland. Our guests really enjoyed the music and I'm very happy with how it all turned out. Thank you Sinead! Xx

"Sinead recently played and sang at our wedding in Rathsallagh, Co Wicklow. I couldn’t recommend her enough! From the very beginning she was a pleasure to deal with, learned a new piece specifically on my wife’s request and just made everything so easy. She gave a fantastic performance on the day and so many of our guests commented on her beautiful playing and singing voice. And to top it all off, when I met her on the day she was very calm and relaxed to a slightly nervous groom, such a lovely person to have with us on our wedding day, Thanks a million Sinead,"

"Sinead provided myself, my husband and our guests with beautiful enchanting music throughout our wedding ceremony. It was arranged by Sinead with great care and gave an intimate feel to the ceremony to such an extent that it was one of the first things our guests mentioned on leaving the church. Sinead was also very patient and helpful during the music selection process and got to the church earlier than my husband to make sure the acoustics were perfect. I would highly recommend Sinead."

Sinead was beyond perfect for our Catholic ceremony. We can't express how gorgeous her playing and her voice are - recordings just can't do her justice! She was also beyond accommodating - she learned a new song for our exit, and was willing to travel for our ceremony. We absolutely could not have had better music and can't say enough great things about Sinead!

I’m so delighted I found Sinead for my wedding ceremony. From first contact with Sinead she was a pleasure to work with. She worked with me and even learned a new song for me. As the months went on she was so patient as I chopped and changed my mind- never once was it a problem. Even with two days to go I had to add another instrumental to the ceremony list and again this wasn't a problem.She is as beautiful a person as is her voice/music. So many of my family and friends commented on her wonderful work. Many thanks Sinead, Neasa & Mario

Sinead is an incredible harpist and singer, and I'd absolutely recommend that you consider her when deciding on your wedding ceremony music. Sinead was a delight to work with throughout the entire process. When my husband and I initially reached out to her, we weren't quite sure what we wanted to hear and how many songs we should consider. She had wonderful recommendations for each piece of the wedding ceremony and was so helpful. Her music set the tone for the whole ceremony, and made the event even more special. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful and moving it was to hear her play. From her demeanor to her skill, she is the very best!

I listened to many Irish musicians and bands before I came across Sinéad and hoped that she would be available. In her samples, one can hear beautifully the fluidity of her gift with the harp and a voice that radiates from ther heart. I had a very intimate wedding in Ireland with 26 guests and It was important for us that even though small, we had depth to our day. I think that regardless if one is religious or a non-believer, or anything in-between, most people can walk into a cathedral full of song and feel the divinity of that moment and Sinéad brought that Cathedral to a little wedding in Roundstone. Sinead brought romance and lifted the mood the the highest place with the timbre of her voice and enchanted our three small flower girls with memories. Michelangelo when asked about difficulties in making a sculpture, explained it as easy as this, ' by chipping away the stone that doesn't look like David', I know that Sinéad sings at a church too and this in my best way to describe someone with such talent... ease! Everything was easy!. Sinéad is humble and accomplished with her musical gifts, she has little to prove and as a result shows up as the perfect professional and artist, with everything to offer. Thank you!

Sinead sang and played at both my church wedding and the reception. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, she even learned songs to suit my needs! She was so nice with thoughtful messages and words of advice. Everyone said she was brilliant and complimented me on my choice of singer. I really can’t compliment her enough. A brilliant service, a fantastic voice, skilled harpist and a great price. Thanks so much Sinead xx
Review by John
Sinead is a true professional in every way, even before you get tears of joy hearing her sing, coming across a person like her for a wedding big or small or any event would take the stress out of anyone, very highly recommend in every way , don’t even hesitate to give her a go!!!!
Review by Aideen and Paul
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding ceremony in Wexford in October. We feel very luck to have had you there on the day. Firstly, we'd like to thank you for being so receptive to our requests and providing support in the run up to the wedding. It meant a lot to us that you were able to learn a new song for the opening processional. Secondly, on behalf of our families and friends were so moved by your singing and playing, you really did make the day special for everyone involved. And finally, thank you from Paul and I for being part of our wedding day. We wish you all the best, Aideen and Paul.

Sinead was the musician at my wedding for my ceremony and drinks reception. We would highly recommend her, both the guests and ourselves thought she was fabulous and she gave me some good ideas for what music would suit the ceremony.
