Recent reviews of our Violinists in Dublin

“Niamh was such a joy to work with! She played for our elopement style wedding on the Cliffs of Moher, and having her play the violin so beautifully as we did the ceremony added so much to our perfect day! She went above and beyond in every way, from driving all the way out to the cliffs to learning a special piece that we requested. I would highly recommend! ”

Abby hired Niamh Leahy for a Wedding (available in Dublin)

“Alex was amazing m! She was beyond professional and discussed with the hotel so sort an issue that the hotel staff did not about! All out guests were mesmerised by her performance both during the ceremony and at the reception! The mix of classical and contemporary music allowed everyone to by emerged in the music and another statement for her amazing performance is that our guests also danced during the reception (even thought it was completely unexpected for the drinks reception). Additionally Conor and myself were extremely happy and we felt deep in our hearts every note she played during our reception which made it ever more memorable! Many many many thanks for the amazing experience and making our wedding an even more special experience!! Elena and Conor ”

“Barbara was absolutely fantastic at our wedding in West Berkshire. She looked beautiful and played incredibly. Her music added a superb ambience to our drinks reception, cocktail hour and then first dance. To have her play along with our DJ really gave us a sensational moment on the dancefloor. Thank you for everything Barbara! We hope to have events to book you for again soon. Caroline & Sam”

FAQs about hiring Violinists in Dublin

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

Are violins popular for weddings?

Yes, absolutely, particularly for smaller, more intimate weddings, one violinist can be enough. A solo violinist can create a beautiful, elegant atmosphere that is loud enough to be heard by everyone without drowning out conversation. However, for larger weddings, you might want to opt for a string quartet or a string duo instead for a fuller sound. If unsure, chat with one of our experts today who talk through your budget, venue and tastes to work out what would work best for you.

Is one violin enough for a wedding?

Yes, violinists are very popular for weddings. Traditional, acoustic violinists are great for wedding ceremonies, evening meals and wedding breakfasts, whereas electric violinists are popular for drinks receptions as they have a louder sound.

Which songs sound best on the violin?

The violin is often associated with classical music, but it's a versatile instrument that can work well with many genres. If you're a fan of classical music, you might enjoy listening to Pachelbel's Canon in D, Beethoven's "Spring" Sonata, or Tchaikovsky's "Melodie". For those who prefer modern music, songs like Adele's "Someone Like You", Ed Sheeran's "Perfect", or Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are" sound great on the violin. If you browse through our musicians’ profiles, you’ll be able to find videos of their live performances and their song lists to get an idea of their sound. It's worth mentioning, however, that our violinists are skilled professionals who are committed to making sure you have a great night and are more than willing to take requests if you can’t find your favourite song on their profile.

Which is better violin or electric violin?

Choosing between a traditional acoustic violin and an electric violin depends on factors like venue size, acoustics, and budget. Acoustic violins produce a warm sound but may not project well in larger spaces. Electric violins can amplify sound and offer digital effects, but some argue they lack natural expression. Ultimately, what works best will depend on your preferences and many of our violinists own both acoustic and electric so browse our collection of violinists today to see what might work best for you.
