Default Neat Irish Guitar store

On a recent trip to Ireland I had the great good luck to find a wonderful shop.
While visiting Galway we came across Moloney's Musical Instruments on High St..
Got to play several new Lowdens of various tone woods and cedar tops.
I was quite impressed by the Lowden tone and quality. A bit surprised at the weight as compared to my Santa Cruz remuda but liked the playability and cosmetics.
The folks at Moloney were very friendly and allowed us to play anything in the store.
It was true Irish weather,wet and cold, and my Florida hands were stiff and not working well( maybe the numerous pints of Guinness I drank to keep warm ?) but the staff kept a smile on their faces.
Highly recommend this shop if you are in Galway .
LOVED IRELAND

I will keep that in mind. I hope to visit there soon and visit the places my grandparents came from. It would be fun visiting some of the music stores there. However, I'm not a fan of Guinness.
