The Killarney Harpist - Harpist Feedback

We got married on Friday 6th September. We asked The Killarney Harpist to play at our drinks reception in the Killarney Oaks Hotel. She was just what we were looking for from start to finish, she was professional and organised. We would highly recommend her. We would 100% book her again. 10/10 first class.
