The Pipers Parlour
At the Piper's Parlour hear the story of the uilleann pipes, the iconic sound of Ireland. Get a chance to try this unique instrument. Find out also how this magnificent Georgian building bore witness to the lives of its inhabitants down the centuries, from the grandeur of Sir Robert King in the 1740s to the struggles of the working class people of the tenement era in the 20th century before restoration by Na Piobairi Uilleann.
Na Píobairí Uilleann (NPU), the Society of Uilleann Pipers was founded in 1968 by pipers with the aim of protecting a threatened art form. Now, forty five years later, NPU is a thriving arts organisation with thousands of members, dedicated to servicing the aims and needs of uilleann pipers worldwide.
