Take a tour of the Piper's Parlour to learn about the uilleann pipes and the history of 15 Henrietta Street. Located on Henrietta Street, Dublin 1 (off Bolton Street), the Piper's Parlour offers visitors a rare opportunity to try the pipes.

At the Piper's Parlour in Dublin city, visitors can hear the story of the uilleann pipes, an iconic sound of Ireland, and have the chance to try this unique instrument.

This Georgian building on Henrietta Street has born witness to the lives of its inhabitants down the centuries, from Sir Robert King in the 1740s to the struggles of the working class people of the tenement era in the 20th century, before its restoration by Na Píobairí Uilleann.

Na Píobairí Uilleann (NPU), the Society of Uilleann Pipers was founded in 1968 by pipers with the aim of protecting a threatened art form. Now, 45 years later, NPU is a thriving arts organisation with thousands of members, dedicated to servicing the aims and needs of uilleann pipers worldwide.

Tea and coffee are available in the Piper's Parlour.
