Our skins are sustainably sourced and carefully selected and examined for quality. They produce great depth of tone and sustain. Our skins are naturally hand-cured in lime, which gives that all-important bass tone, then 'pickled' to close up the pores and finally stretched and left to sun dry, achieving a lovely clean 'bleached' finish.

In order to improve and maintain the condition of your bodhrán skin we recommend you treat your goatskin with our very own bodhrán cream, DrumDiddly not only will it help you achieve an even more beautiful tone but it will also extend the life of your bodhrán skin.


All of Paraic’s bodhráns come with taped skin to help achieve that unique McNeela bass sound. Inspired by drummers using E-rings on their drum kits to dampen the tone, Paraic found that taping the outer rim of the skin lowered the tone of the bodhrán and extended its harmonic range. Taping your bodhrán helps bring about a more harmonic overtone-to-basic tone relation and consequently a more melodic quality to the sound produced. In other words, it helps the bodhrán sound more like a musical instrument and ensures you'll always be welcome at a session!
