The Celtic Harp is one of Ireland’s oldest instruments and one of its most well known national symbols. That’s why at McNeela Instruments, we take such pride in having a selection of handcrafted wooden celtic harps for sale for all kinds of harp players. Dive into a unique and mystical part of Irish culture by playing one of these incredibly unique and magical instruments.

Our very own brand harps come in a number of different sizes and varieties. However, our main harps are the miniature McNeela 12 String Baby Harp, the McNeela 27 String Harp, and the colossal 34 String Celtic Harp to boot. Our smaller harp model is perfect for smaller beginners looking to dabble in playing the harp, or for any musician looking to have a more portable model to take with them anywhere!

Each of these harp models are incredible, top grade instruments constructed from the finest maple tonewoods to make sure that they give off a lovely bright tone. Each of the bigger harps follows a traditional lever harp design, having independent levers for each string attached to the neck, and a soundboard for amplification. The bigger harp model’s legs are also detachable in order to change the height to be more comfortable to play. Combined with a set of nylon or gut strings, it’s clear that these harps are certainly a musical force to be reckoned with.

Due to the delicate and fragile nature of these harps, shipping is only available to the rest of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
