Any shops to visit in Southern Ireland?

  1. I will go through Limerick, Waterford, Kenmare, and Tralee. Any bass shops I can check out in these areas?

    I know of no bass shops in Ireland, and I've been there 7 times. The music school in Limerick teaches violin making. There a guy named Bill Patterson who teaches making in Cork, and lives in a town nearby. He's an excellent maker and teacher. I was fortunate to study with him one summer. Check out the Strings or Stad Resouce book for luthiers in Ireland. There's one listed in Galway which isn't that far from Limerick.
  3. Thanks for the info Martin. My wife will be happy to know there are no shops in this area. I will, however, try to sneek away and check out the one in Galway.
