The Dublin String Quartet - String Quartet Feedback

"We just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to you and the other members of the quartet for your beautiful performance. It was perfect. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful the music was. Aine was so professional all the way through the booking process. As it was a Christmas wedding we had some unusual song requests but this was no problem. Aine even sent a lovely text message a few days before the wedding. All of these little touches really put our minds at ease and we could not have been happier with the service. We are so glad we chose you to play at our wedding. Thanks again." Tara and Jonathan

"Thanks so much for your beautiful music both in the church (Presbyterian, Clontarf) & hotel (Royal Marine, Dun Laoghaire), it added so much to our big day. It was superb! Our guests loved it too! Thanks also for learning a new version of "The Lord is My Shepherd" and for accompanying my brother on guitar. You were very friendly & professional to deal with and we would recommend you to anyone who asks our advice." Miriam & Andrew

"I am just getting back to some sort of normality after our Wedding/Honeymoon and wanted to send a BIG thank you for playing at our Wedding in Mount Argus Church on 1st December last. The church music was very important to us and we put alot of time and travel into looking at various musicians, however when we saw the quartet for the first time they ticked every box for us. Everyone commented to us after on how beautiful the music was in the church and you truly made our day even more special. You were so lovely, helpful and proffessional to deal with and we will definltiy be recommending you in the future." Gillian and Paul

"Just a quick note to say a BIG THANK YOU to you and your team for the beautiful music you performed on the day of our wedding. It was so fantastic and everyone commented on it all, especially Damien Rice's song, which nearly had me in tears! You were absolutely brilliant and true professionals! We had the most amazing day of our lives (even though it poured rain), but that didn't dampen our spirits.. We would do it all again in a second! Many thanks again and I will highly recommend you to anyone who asks!" Lynne and Justin
