About Us

As one of Munsters largest established music schools we cater for all genres and styles of music from beginner to undergraduate level, so if you're passionate about music you've come to the right place.

The Croagh School of Music was founded in 2001 by two music graduates Darren Murphy and Marian Giltenane. From our humble beginnings of a garden shed, (yes a garden shed!), we moved to our present purpose built building in 2005 and has expanded to circa 700 students with a large staff body.


The school prides itself on the standard and quality of its staff most of whom have trained and performed both at home and abroad which can only be matched in large urban centres. As musicians and educators we strive to maintain high standards of teaching and realise that building relationships with pupils and parents alike is an important aspect

that encourages would be musicians.


The school provides tuition equally in all the main genres classical, traditional, jazz and rock and over a wide variety of instruments with graded exams available throughout the year for those who wish to enter with a selection of exam boards such RIAM, LCM Exams,ABRSM, Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Éireann and RGT, while many learn simply for pleasure both young and not so young!  The school provides numerous opportunities for performance in some external locations, Milk Market, Hunt Museum Dolans Warehouse , UCH Limerick and also our own performance space.
