Fancy A Bit Of History With Your Brunch?

We all love a good brunch but finding somewhere new - and tasty - can be difficult these days. There are actually SO many options out there, it can be a little overwhelming.

Tucked up in a historic Georgian building just off Parnell Square, on North Frederick Street, The Old Music Shop is a hidden gem and a must for your next brunch date. It also has a sweet story behind it.

For 80 years, the famous Walton's music shop called this location home and housed Ireland's first music school, the Dublin College of Music and their mantra “if you’re going to sing a song, sing an Irish song” is still remembered throughout the world. Hearts around Dublin broke when Walton's announced they were shutting up shop in 2013 but owner of the Castle Hotel Fionn MacCumhaill, re-opened the much loved music store as a restaurant that focuses on pure and honest food with casual dining.

The Old Music Shop

When you step through the doors, you'll see a selection of instruments and song sheets from the original shop. During renovations of the Castle Hotel, many letters written by guests around the time of 1916 were found, so now you can read all about the history of this time and lose yourself in thoughts and meanderings of times gone by.

These link in with the attractive Georgian features in the Georgian Room - this space is perfect for bigger groups and you can book it out for special occasions.
