Limerick City is Ireland’s 3rd largest city. It’s in the Midwest of Ireland on the Shannon River. It’s the home of Munster rugby and has a great history with music and songwriters. The band the Cranberries are all from Limerick and are (In my opinion) the focus point of limerick rock music. The city center is small so finding the best local guitar shops will be no problem.
What To Know Before Buying A Guitar
Before you buy a guitar, make sure you allocate a budget. Don’t spend a lot of money on your first guitar, because its still uncertain if you will like playing the guitar or not. I recommend you read this post on Guitarsquid, because I think it will teach you what to look for before buying one. On there, you can also hear some sound samples of some great guitars under $300.
Now, since you know what to look for, let’s take a look at where you can buy them.
The Best Guitar Shops In Limerick City, Ireland
In Limerick city, Ireland, you will find a large selection of music shops that supply a wide range of Guitars, from classic to steel to electric guitars. The guitar of course is a popular instrument amount the population of the world. And all age groups are catered for. One of the oldest music shops in my local area is “Savins” on O’Connell Street, Limerick and in my opinion is the best local guitar shop. Savins music instruments is in the down stairs section and has a huge collection of guitars. Acoustic guitars are very popular in this store. They have in stock many different top brands from Martin to Cort to Tanglewood. I myself am a guitar player and have featured on many different recordings produced in Ireland. I buy all my guitar and guitar strings there. The staff is very helpful and is well experienced in their field of musical instruments. Here you will see a link to this wonderful local guitar shop. They also have a wide range of different instruments in stock.
Future Sound and Vision
Another great guitar shop is “Future Sound and Vision” on Musgrave Street, Limerick. Here, the staff are guitar and percussion experts. They cater for everybody and at every level. Here you will find guitars at great prices. No body wants to pay over the odds right? … I myself shop there for guitar books and they have a huge selection of them. This shop deserves to be in my list of best local guitar shops. Just last week, I went in there to F.S.V to price a new Yamaha guitar and I was pleased to see the price wasn’t over the top. It was a new modal. They keep only the best guitars in stock. I was quite surprised to see that they stock Lakewood guitars in stock. They are the most expensive of their range in the shop but still at good value for the price.
Other local guitar shops
Many other music shops are in my local area of Limerick, but these two I’ve written about here are the two best local guitar shops in the city. Others include Stream boat quay music in the docklands. This is a shop long established in Limerick but the range of guitars is limited and prices can be very high.
