The Irish Concertina Company


 



Quality Concertinas The Clare & The Vintage Handcrafted in Dublin, Ireland

All of our Concertina’s are crafted to perfection with the player in mind. We have spent the last 10 years developing Concertina’s with superb quality sound and effortless playability.

Specialising in both The Clare (mid-range) and The Vintage (top of the range).

We employ 5 Irish staff to fulfill orders within a reasonable time period for our customers. General waiting period for The Clare is 2-3 weeks, and for The Vintage 6-8 weeks. By working as a team of 5 we can produce a top quality instrument that doesn’t take years to make.


“I will not separate myself a second from the concertina -well, now I played it a little bit and I am really fond of it -nice mechanics nice sound easy bellows . a dream of concertina -I am suddenly a better player ! Compliments.”  Fulvio Quattrocchi (Germany)



About Our Concertina’s

 

Our instruments are made here in Dublin, at An Siopa Ceoil 184 Crumlin Road. We have a workshop to the rear of the shop where you can see the process in action.


 

The Vintage – Top Of The Range

The Vintage is our top of the range instrument equipped with singular brass plated Concertina reeds to produce the classic Concertina sound. The fast response and warm tone from our Vintage is second to none.

The Clare – Mid Range

The Clare is the perfect Concertina for students moving up from a beginner instrument. The fast response of the button action allows the player to achieve ornamentation and fast rolls with ease. The quality tone of the handmade Italian reeds among the many other features makes this the best mid range Concertina available.
