"I bought a beautiful second hand piano for a very reasonable price from Cathal. He has a great knowledge of music and pianos. He is sound and very professional. I am glad I came across him when I was looking for a piano and can highly recommend him."
"Cathal delivered my piano to Galway, very professional, moved it in to the house, tuned it, absolute gent. The U3 is better than we expected so the whole family is thrilled. I would recommend Cathal without hessitation an A1 service."
"I contacted Cathal at O'Briain Pianos regarding purchasing a piano as a gift, with very little experience in the field myself. Cathal was more than accommodating, sending me helpful information and videos comparing various suitable options, and invited me in to listen to different models. When I visited the showroom, Cathal took the time to show me the intricate workings of all the models I was interested in, and played the pianos so I could compare between them. In the end he helped me to decide upon the perfect option, and as he did not deal specifically in the piano we chose, even advised me to look around elsewhere in case I could pick one up, rather than trying to sell me a piano that he carried simply to make the sale. A gentleman and a true enthusiast, I would highly recommend Cathal and O'Briain Pianos to anyone in the market for the instrument."
"Got an old piano that was out of tune and in bad shape, Cathal did great work in bringing it back up to standard and was highly informative."
"We had Cathal around to tune our old piano. His work not only brought the piano back to a high quality but also gave our daughter a new enthusiasm, we no longer have to ask her to practice, she voluntarily sits and enjoys playing a perfectly tuned piano, thank you Cathal for the high quality work, our 11 year old actually sits playing for her own enjoyment now, well see you again in 2018 for a touch up."
Sarah May Rogers (Piano Teacher @ Irish Institute of Music & Song)
"We bought our school's piano from Cathal, he was extremely professional and friendly, offering great advice and working with our requests. He even delivered the piano on a Sunday morning! He spent a lot of time tuning upon delivery and I am still delighted with the instrument, almost a year later. I would highly recommend him for anyone interested in purchasing a piano."
Zena Palmer (Piano Teacher & Examiner)
"As a teacher and advanced player, I am very picky about my instrument and the level of service I require from both sales point of view and also tunings. Cathal delivers on both, offering high quality, good value instruments, excellent aftercare and is a brilliant tuner to boot. I have recommended and will continue to recommend O’Briain Pianos to anyone looking for a great instrument whatever their level or a reliable tuner who can offer great advice regarding piano maintenance. Cathal will source the right instrument for you as you won’t be disappointed. Keep up the great work!"
