Feadog (Irish for whistle) Teoranta was founded in Dublin in 1978 with the aim of producing a high quality, traditional Irish whistle (commonly referred to as “Tin Whistle” or “Penny Whistle”) that was actually made in Ireland and was affordable to anyone who wanted to play music.
Since then, we have stuck firmly to that principle and the company has gone from strength to strength. When the first Feadóg “Original Irish Whistles” appeared on the market, they were met with a favourable response and soon proved to be a popular choice for beginners and accomplished players. However, our philosophy here at Feadóg has always been that we cannot rest on our laurels, but instead we must always strive to improve.
From there we went on to develop and produce our Mk.II Feadóg which brought us through the next ten years. But still striving for improvement, we decided to invest heavily in further development of the instrument. Much thought, research and testing took place over a lengthy period of time in collaboration with professional musicians. In late 2001 we launched the Mk.III Feadóg Whistle. This was a great success and the Feadóg tin whistle is now enjoyed the world over by everyone from young children to professional musicians. We continue to invest in R&D to further improve the Feadóg range. You can follow our progress by checking this web-site for product information. 2018 was the 40th anniversary of Feadóg Teoranta. We are able to look back and celebrate 40 years of bringing music to millions. We are also looking forward to the future, bringing you new Feadóg products whilst maintaining the same high level of quality and affordability our customers have become accustomed to. 2022/2023 - Moving green, we introduced 100% recyclable packaging for our Tutor packs (Whistle/Book, Whistle/Book/CD items) followed by all Single packs.
