What can I say about Mary. She is just an incredibly talented woman and the nicest person Iv dealt with in a long long time. She traveled all the way to Killarney for our wedding on November 20th. Every single person at the wedding complimented her. I can’t speak highly enough of Mary and I would have no problem recommending her for your wedding or event. You 100% will not find a better musician or kinder soul.

Mary was so incredibly warm and friendly, in person as well as on video calls. She knew every song we requested right off the bat. We are in the US and planned the whole wedding from across the Atlantic, so it was very reassuring to have someone so knowledgeable and kind. I didn’t worry over the music at all! Even our officiant (who has seen many weddings) complimented the beautiful harp music. 10/10, I would absolutely recommend Mary to everyone!

I couldn't speak highly enough of Mary. She met up with myself and my bride, also Mary, a couple of months before our wedding to discuss music ideas and give us a heads up of how the pieces would fit into the ceremony itself. It wasn't all business though, we chatted about all sorts, stuff which had nothing to do with the wedding! But that is what makes Mary so good at what she does. She puts couples at such ease that you feel like you're just having a matter with an old friend. On the day itself, Mary was there before anybody arrived to set up in plenty of time and chat away to guests who all sang her praises, at not only her wonderful musicality, but at her sparkling personality. You really do get the full package with Mary. The music selections I requested were beautifully played, even adding in a stunning rendition of "Sweet Child Ó Mine" for our daughter, Caitilín, who was sharing our special day with her christening. This woman is an absolute dream to deal with, takes any further stress away, all in all, an absolute legend!

Mary is a true professional, an amazing singer and harpist and just the most lovely woman you could meet, and a lovely addition to any wedding! She played at our wedding recently after a number of postponements, and was so easy to deal with all along, with a great selection of songs. I would highly highly recommend her to any wedding couples looking for a beautiful wedding singer.

Mary is the warmest and friendliest person ever. Having postponed our wedding due to Covid, I was delighted Mary was also available on our second date. She travelled the whole way to Kerry to our wedding. Every wedding guest complemented her music, and my family still talk about the amazing music at our wedding months later! Mary also replied to my (many!!) queries and questions very quickly and nothing was too much trouble for her. I would have no problem recommending Mary to anyone, 10/10. She truly made our wedding so special.

Mary was fantastic. Great repertoire of songs and very talented musician. Was lovely to have her in our venue which was a castle so was a lovely touch with the harp. Very personable met with us before hand and always on hand to answer questions we had. Lots of lovely comments on the music during arrivals reception.

Mary is simply amazing. Such a fabulous supplier to deal with. Very responsive, friendly and helpful. Mary learned a new song for us and all and had no issue with that. We had Mary play for our marriage ceremony and drinks reception. She travelled from Newry to Waterford and distance doesn't seem to stress her at all. Even though we didn't get a chance to meet before the wedding (apart from a lovely drink together at the venue the night before the wedding), I felt she was like a friend due to her regular communication and amazing positivity. Everyone said she was brilliant and sounded amazing. Highly recommended.

We just want to say a big thank you to Mary O’Neill for our ceremony music. Mary was so lovely to deal with and made us very at ease planning our wedding ceremony during restrictions. Everyone commented on how magical the harp sounded and it brought such a lovely atmosphere to our ceremony. We would highly recommend Mary Oneill Music

Words cannot describe Mary's talent. From start to finish Mary was an absolute pleasure to deal with. So helpful in assisting us with song choices, she went above and beyond. So professional yet it felt like a friend was there singing for us on our special day. She travelled so far to get to us that day and we cannot Thank her enough. We wish her the very best of luck!Our only wish is that we will get to hear her sing live again in the future!

I couldn't recommend Mary anymore. She created an amazing atmosphere both during the ceremony and at the drinks reception. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with and always responded to queries extremely fast! She was also incredibly accommodating with a number of change of dates due to covid, making our lives much less stressful!

Mary's voice is the kind that gives you goosebumps. That blended with her magical harp playing completely set the mood for our small intimate ceremony. Our guests are still raving about how beautiful the music was at our wedding. Mary also played the harp at our reception which created a calm and relaxing atmosphere. Mary was amazing to deal with. So warm and friendly. She has an amazing repertoire of songs and catered for my individual choices also. Mary was a dream to work with and I will be recommending her to anyone I know that is getting married. We feel blessed that we found her as we could not imagine our wedding day without her beautiful music.

Mary was absolutely amazing. I had loads of questions prior to our wedding and Mary answered and supported. Picking music was new to me but Mary guided me a d made suggestions to help with building the music for the ceremony. Mary on the day was amazing and I cannot get my entrance song out of my head... I 100% recommend her for both her professionalism, her amazing talent and the ease to work with.

We can’t rate Mary highly enough, she was a pleasure to deal with throughout and incredibly flexible and understanding when we had to change our date from April to September due to COVID. Mary performed (sang & played the harp) so beautifully at our ceremony & drinks reception. There was no fuss she set herself up, did her thing & packed up quietly. Forever the professional ?? Thank you Mary, you were an absolute star ?? so talented, you made our day all the more memorable!

Mary was so kind, professional and helpful as we organised our wedding day during the covid 19 pandemic. Unfortunately our wedding day in March was postponed due to lockdown so we rearranged Mary for our wedding in September. Her voice is so beautiful and the harp was so elegant at our drinks reception. We loved her so much we had her back for our second day! I would highly recommend her to anyone planning their wedding! Thank you so much again Mary xx

I honestly couldn't recommend Mary enough. Mary performed the harp on the day of our wedding for both the ceremony and drinks reception, and then also played with her Trad Band for our second day BBQ. Throughout both days everyone was absolutely raving about her, even trying to see if we could get the music to play longer on the second day!!! And importantly to us, during the really tricky times of COVID wedding planning, Mary was in constant contact with us, reassuring us and just sending kind words and positive messages to us, and this really meant a lot to us. Thank you Mary for everything!

Mary was an absolute dream to work with. She is one of the most professional and down to earth ladies I've had the pleasure of meeting. From start to finish the service was top notch. Mary took the time to listen and understand exactly what my husband and I were looking for music / song wise for our ceremony. Her voice is both beautiful and haunting. I couldn't recommend Mary more. Thank you again Mary!

Mary was an absolute gem. I was let down by another musician and got in contact with her. She was so accommodating and was genuinely interested in what we wanted and gave many suggestions in what would go well in different aspects of the ceremony. We were supposed to have an outdoor ceremony but unfortunately the weather got the better of it and Mary carried on as a total professional. The music was beautiful and made our ceremony just perfect, as the saying goes, the cherry on top of the cake. Mary is a beautiful person and wa amazing to deal with. Exceptional value for money, magical musician, wonderful to deal with. What more would you want, highly recommended xxx

Mary was an absolute breeze to work with. Our ceremony singer and musician let us down which left us in a sticky situation to find a new singer/musician for our wedding ceremony. My hubby and I got in touch with Mary and she was so fantastic helping us with suggestions when we had a video call together. Our ceremony was in kinsale and we were glad to hear Mary made a night away out of her trip from Armagh. Her vocals and playing of the harp was truly stunning and we felt at ease with her playing during the ceremony. We were both so happy with our decision to book with Mary and highly recommend booking with her to others! Can't wait to meet again next time she visits Kinsale.

Mary was amazing on the day of our wedding. Wonderful singer and harpist, we were so happy to have her singing in the church. She is very talented and we would highly reccomend her to other couples in the midst of their planning. Our wedding was in Leitrim and Mary made the journey down to us from Newry on the day. It was lovely to meet with her after the ceremony to thank her.

The lovely Mary played at our wedding on the 06th of July, she is a really friendly and warm person, she made a point of coming to see me after the ceremony as we had never met in the flesh. She learned my entrance song and i found her very easy to deal with. To top it off, her prices are extremely reasonable. Thanks again for being part of our very special day.

Mary played at my Wedding ceremony two weeks ago and I'm so glad I booked her for our day. The ceremony music was absolutely beautiful and my guests commented on how much it added to the service. Mary is such a lovely, down to earth girl and was extremely low maintenance and easy to talk to when it came to organising everything. As I was so busy, she let me organise everything via message and phonecall and nothing was too much trouble. She was able to make recommendations about song choices and hymns as I wasn't sure what I wanted and was happy to learn any new songs I wanted for the day. I was very surprised to find out how reasonable Mary's price is for her services and it was money well spent! I would absolutely recommend her to anybody who needs music for a wedding or function and wouldn't hesitate to book Mary again for myself. Absolute 10/10.

We were just blown away with the music at our recent wedding ceremony. Mary kindly took time out of her day to meet with me and went through all options for the big day, nothing was too much trouble . She is a beautiful singer and harpist with an even nicer personality. Mary was accompanied by an amazing male vocalist and guitarist and the two complimented each other perfectly. We are both so happy we chose you for our wedding day and will happily recommend you to anyone planning their wedding. Much love, Mr & Mrs Dunlevy x

What can I say! Mary played at our wedding in December. We were just blown away by her voice and she was the talk of my guests the rest of the day. Mary took time out of her busy schedule to meet me for a coffee prior to my wedding to help me decide on my wedding music and it was lovely as I felt that I got to know her for the gorgeous person that she is. For anyone considering a wedding singer and a beautiful harp player, you will have absolutely no regrets booking Mary. Thanks again for everything Love Emma & Martin

Hi Mary and Jason, I’m sorry this has taken so long but I wanted to find the time to sit down and take my time writing this. Carousel were unbelievable and we couldn’t have decided on two better people to provide the music for our wedding. Mary when you sang me up the aisle, you sent me into an emotional mess your voice is just beautiful. And everyone was talking about Jason’s voice at the drinks reception. You had our guests truly entertained. The pair of you work very well together. Your voices blend so well. We can’t thank you enough for making our day one we will never forget. Best of luck to Carousel and I will be recommending you to everyone. Love Sinead & Niall
