Bluebird Recording Studio

Bluebird Studios is a recording studio that offers the highest degree of audio and media quality available today.  It has four superb sounding acoustically balanced rooms, racks of world class outboard, large analogue console and the best digital convertors.

Bluebird Studios is set in the very scenic and peaceful setting of Castlewarden, Straffan, on the Dublin/Kildare border.  It is located just five minutes off the N7 at Junction 5. There is no parking hassle, no meters to keep paying, no traffic jams, no lugging gear upstairs, no rotten air filling your lungs.  It was very important to me when setting up the studio that musicians would feel comfortable here, almost a home from home.  That is how you get the best performances out of musicians – when they are not concerned about a number of other unnecessary distractions.
Now you can hear what’s in your head!

I will have new products and more videos and blogs than ever before.  I’m looking forward to providing a more informative site – with free lessons, an open forum and some guest contributions.  Please feel free to contact me with any queries on 087 1646071 or EMAIL.  Many thanks – Declan Lonergan.

Declan Lonergan Music Producer

Bluebird Recording Studio Owner Declan LonerganDeclan Lonergan is a professional sound engineer, musician and producer working from Bluebird Studios.  A recording studio facility which he built in 2005 in Castlewarden, Straffan Co Kildare.  Declan studied sound engineering at ATC college in Dublin from 1990 – 1993.  After studying sound engineering he set up his own live sound company, “Audio Seven”.  Audio Seven provided sound reinforcement and engineers to venues around Ireland.  After ten years Declan established Bluebird Studios, a high end recording studio.  His skill set then moved more into audio production, mixing and writing, producing albums and singles for a wide variety of artists.  As a session musician you will see Declan performing in theatres and venues all over the country with a wide range of artists.

Over the last three years Declan has expanded his area of expertise by moving into film post audio, mixing and writing.  The transition from audio to video felt very natural and allowed him to focus on new challenges that video presents.  Recent highlights include films like Triúr, From Coolea to Iona and Dreamtime Revisited, all films broadcast on RTE, and the Eco Eye series.  By the end of 2015 Declan will add another film project, “JFK The Badge Man”, plus three short films to his CV while still continuing to record albums and singles and, of course, playing guitar and writing music.
