Why go anywhere else

I was looking for a harp for my daughter and Harpessentials was recommended to me, having spoken with Robin. I took the trip to see what was on offer. Both Dearbhail and Robin were great in helping us decide which harp would be suitable. There was no hard selling they even left us alone for a while. We did purchase a harp from them and I am very grateful to them both for all their help. Dearbhail is a fantastic harp player and has a wonderful Academy of music in Meath. Thanks again

Harp Re string

Since I bought my salvi Harp it had been playing up so I came across Robin and Deaebhail at harp essentials :) they were both amazing would highly recommended them. Robin took my harp to restring to fix the problems I was having and he fixed it :) They lent me another harp while mine was getting fixed which was amazing. I had a lesson with dearbhail which was amazing she is an outstanding harpist would recommend lessons with her. if I lived closer I would definitely be getting weekly lessons. Thank you for everything :)

Thank you very very much!

We were looking to buy a Harp for our daughter; her teacher then recommended Robin and Dearbhail. We made the trip and bought this Salvi from them - the best decision we've made! Thank you very very much Robin and Dearbhail, for your kindness, and professionalism!

Buy from these reputable dealers!

I saw the same harp online at a cheaper price, so i was curious. After looking into it, I discovered the pitfalls of buying blind online, no service, what if it's damaged? The transport cover was an extra cost, so it wasn't that much cheaper I called Robin at harpessentials who told me the hidden dangers. What do harpessentials offer? A selection of harps all tuned and ready to play, professional advice, definitely no hard sale. these guys can't keep harps in stock long. Robin is a Salvi technician and also sells all the strings so it was a no brainer to go take a look. I walked out an hour late with a fabulous harp for my daughter. It was lovely to see Dearbhail play and show the capabilities of a student model. I wouldn't go anywhere else. All the best to harpessentials, this is what Ireland needs, a place where you can see and play harps coupled with great service.

Thank you Robin and Dearbhail!

Robin and Dearbhail provide a great service! They had the harps I was interested in tuned and ready to play. It was great that Dearbhail is a harpist as she played all the harps which allowed me to hear them played by a professional and to compare them. They gave me time to try out the harps on my own which is much appreciated as a beginner, and were able to answer all my questions. I purchased a lovely Mia harp and am very pleased with it!

First professional Lever Harp

After four years Learning with a Clive Morley harp, my daughters harp teacher said she deserved an upgrade because she is doing so well. On her advice she said to give harpessentials a phone. Having spoke at length with Robin we decided to go for the Salvi Una, a professional lever harp. From our initial contact to Robin personally delivering our new harp from Meath to Cork all dealings with harpessentials were slick and professional. It is indeed a stunning Harp, with a beautiful timbre. Many years of enjoyment ahead. Many thanks to Harpessentials.

Extremely knowledgable!

Bought a Salvi Una harp from harp essentials. Found robin to be extremely helpful, knowledgable and professional. Very happy with this harp and feel if I need further advice I’d be able to contact harp essentials without hesitation. Would highly recommend them!

Salvi Mia

We arranged an appointment one Saturday with Dearbhail and Robin for my daughter to audition a Salvi Mia harp.  On arrival, there were three (all different finishes) lined up perfectly, ready for demonstration and audition.

Robin and Dearbhail talked us through the harp and gave a demo.  We were then left alone to discuss the harps and allow my daughter to audition further.

The buying experience was an absolute pleasure without any hard sell, although their vast experience was obvious and was most valuable when forming our buying decision.

After the harp was chosen it was wiped down to ensure it was spotless, then tuned and finally carefully packed into its case.  Finally we were offered plenty of important advice to send us on our way.

If you are looking for a quality harp by a reputable manufacturer with excellent support here in Ireland then I can’t recommend Harp Essentials enough, we will be back.

A beautiful Salvi Una

From the initial visit to their workshop right up to delivery and beyond, Dearbhail and Robin couldn't have been more helpful and genuinely interested in making sure we got the best harp for our daughter. Their quick and helpful replies to our queries, expert knowledge and professionalism made this whole process very enjoyable and worthwhile. Thank you!

Salvi Una

Bought a lovely Salvi Una for our daughter . Fabulous . Such a lovely couple to deal with. We had a lovely relaxed visit to Nobber . There was no pressure and no rushing us. Great service and advice to us first time harp buyers. Thanks a million .

Very Satisfied

We were looking to buy a harp for our daughter without much knowledge of the whys and wherefores of harps.  We were very satisfied from first contact with Robin to final purchase of a Salvi Mia.  He sent us photos of the harp to look at after our initial inquiry, traveled half way across the country with Dearbhail to meet us, and they both shared very useful information about looking after the harp and such info as contact for insurance - brought us into their harping world for a little while.   i'm confident that if i have questions or need new supplies that Robin and Dearbhail will be there to sort me out or point me in the right direction, and great that they are based in Ireland.

I contacted Harp Essentials to buy a full sized Salvi Harp
for my daughter. Our whole family went to the showroom and Robin and Derbahail
could not have been more generous with their time. We got loads of great advice

progress while it was being made and shipped. The harp arrived on time as
promised and my daughter is delighted with it.

Dearbahail is a professional harpist with a strong ongoing relationship

A Big Thank You!!

On behalf of my daughter Chloe Michelle, I want to thank you sincerely for your help, advice and wonderful friendly and knowlegable service which you provided to us last Thursday, when on the eve of her Graduation rehersals a string broke on her harp creating utter panic and stress beyond belief. After speaking to you briefly over the telephone I was more than happy to relay to her that I had sourced a replacement harp string that would take this potential disaster away. Her preformances on Graduation evening were wonderful and only a few people really knew the upheavel a string breaking 24 hours previously had caused. I am truly grateful for your assistance and highly recommend your services. Apart from receiving awards for "Academic Excellence" in three subjects, my daughter also received the "Musician of the Future" award on the night. Thank you to harpessentials for being part of her story.
