Being one of Ireland's foremost violinmakers, Peter Boardman has been making instruments for musicians internationally since 1979. All of Peter's instruments are hand crafted in the Cremonese tradition, using wood sourced by Peter himself. He is self taught and has honed his skills during a career spanning four decades.

We sets up and repair string instruments for both traditional and classical players, and also offer impartial advice to prospective buyers from beginner through to seasoned professional.

We offer a world-class valuation service, internationally recognised and accepted by insurers.

Peter's son Rory, a classically trained player since childhood, has been training in the workshop to carry on the family tradition since 2018. His instruments are available to purchase.
