All About Accordions

beginner, improver and professional traditional accordions. Our collection of accordions is by far the biggest traditional selection in Ireland / Eire.

All About Accordions is now located at 184 Crumlin Road.

An Siopa Ceoil / The Trad Shop will be officially opened shortly.


The new version of the Elite is now a smaller accordion and lighter and the Jubilee / Classic is  being re launched.     There has been a major problem in the Paolo Soprani factory  and there has been no stock from the company in the last year and a half but that’s all about to change in the next 2 weeks.

Trading up from your Garvey AAA, I am offering  €400  on any silver Grill version of the Garvey AAA against Garvey Tam ‘s or Castagnari or Serenellini accordions.

All the professional accordions displayed here are guaranteed for 3 years and student accordions for 2 years.  Piano accordions, Button accordions, Concertinas.  We also stock a range of keys from B+C, C#D etc, and can order any key if you are buying a new accordion.

Buying an accordion or concertina from us is a guaranteed and hassle free experience. We are not the big shop in town who don’t want to see you call again after the purchase. We would rather be glad to know that you are happy with your purchase. If at any time you lose confidence in the quality and for any reason whatsoever if you decide within a week that you are not happy with your purchase or that the instrument does not do what we said it would, please come back and we’ll sort it out.

Whatever accordion you buy make sure to try out first as we have heard numerous stories of accordions ordered from Irish makers and finished product not the same as one tried.
However, if you need to get a teacher or expert to look at your accordion,  All About Accordions and Concertinas, can accomodate you in getting approval on the instrument  before you pay for it.

 Sean Garvey, who is an Accordion Player and Accordion and Concertina Builder and has been working with accordions since 1990’s  and he will offer his time and  co-operate with you to help you in understanding what you’re buying. Please phone, if only for advice.
Always phone ahead before travelling a long way to make sure we have what you are looking for. This is particularly important during the Summer / Fleadh / Festival season, when we take stock out to shows / festival. 

All About Accordions have been supplying quality accordions to traditional Irish Musicians for almost twenty years [1997] and in that time we have been in the forefront  making players more aware of the quality of reeds available to the professional player.

We have made the accordion players aware of the different quality reeds available to them through advertising the different types  in each accordion we sell.  20 years ago very few players in Ireland  would have heard of the Tipo A Mano reeds for example. Tam Reeds as we now call them.
Accordion company’s were dropping their standards in order to shift accordions and the only way to cut costs is to use cheaper reeds where possible. Some shops back then were specifying [when ordering accordions] the cheaper reeds in order to offer a better price.
in 2008 I asked the reed makers to supply a sticker to back up my guarantee to my customers.
Because of my influence on the reed makers, today, In every accordion we sell, there is a sticker from the reed maker stating the type of reeds  in the accordion.
