Tunable bodhráns

All our Tunable Bodhráns and Fixed skin Bodhrans are hand made from start to finish by Paul in the heart of the Glens of Antrim, Northern Ireland. 

We have the famour Nine Glens within this very scenic part of the North Antrim area of Northern Ireland where we live and work.  We have dedicated each Glen to a specific Bodhran Range to give it the uniqueness of our Famous Glens of Antrim.  

A selection of beaters and Bodhran CD's first steps to playing are also available but before ordering please check availability as these tend to sell-out quickly.

 Please note Paul McAuley Bodhrans will not be trading from 18th March 2019 until Monday 10th June 2019.  We apologise for any inconvenience.  We will answer any emails and assist with queries as much as possible during this time.  Thank you for your patience.  Paul and Imelda McAuley

When ordering a Tunable Bodhran please email Paul separately to confirm if you want a bar fitted.  Our tunables are usually completed without a bar.  

The bar Paul fits is removable, if desired, so just confirm your preference when ordering.

Testimonials

I am writing to say how pleased I am with my bodhran that you sent to me just before you left for Australia. When it arrived in January all I could do was a couple of quick, light strokes just to hear how the skin sounded. However, I was really pleased as soon as I opened the box. The quality of my bodhran is fantastic. Every part of it is smooth to the touch and just to handle it gives me such pleasure. I'm thrilled with the skin tone which is already rich and mellow. I'm so looking forward to being able to really explore its potential when my elbow permits. Thank you so much for discussing my purchase on the telephone, and the trouble and care you took over my bodhran. I'm so pleased I chose you to make it for me. I would recommend you, without hesitation, to anybody else that was considering buying a bodhran. Yours sincerely, Deborah Amor
