The Bodhrán Maker, Paraic McNeela, began making his handcrafted Irish drums in 1979 and has never looked back since. His desire to create the ultimate bodhrán means he is constantly developing and innovating and perfecting his craft. The results are impressive! So much so that Paraic can count U2, Christy Moore and Rónán Ó Snodaigh among his many fans and customers.

Ranging in size from 12” to 18”, McNeela bodhráns are available in both traditional and tuneable forms, with every Irish drum displaying an unrivalled attention to detail. Paraic specialises in Deep Rim Tuneable hand drums, including the stunning 16" Deep Rim Rosewood Bodhrán, and his latest limited edition the 14” Performance Bodhrán.

Whether you're a total beginner or have been playing for fifty years, we have a bodhrán to meet your needs. Tunable bodhráns, non-tunable bodhrans, deep rim bodhráns, or traditional shallow rim bodhráns - Paraic is bound to have the perfect bodhrán for you.

A bodhrán is an Irish frame drum consisting of a circular wooden frame covered with a goatskin head on one side. It is played by striking the skin with a small wooden stick known as a bodhrán beater, tipper or cipín.

The other side of the drum is open-ended allowing one hand to be placed against the inside of the drum head to control pitch and timbre. This versatile musical instrument is the most popular Irish percussion instrument today and one of the most recognisable frame drums in the world.
