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 received my Glencloy bodhran in the mail the other day. When I opened the carrying bag and saw my bodhran, I instantly fell in love with it. What a gorgeous bit of workmanship! The finish of the bodhran is the work of a master craftsman. The meticulous attention to detail is the work of an artist. But the sound of the bodhran. This is the work of a man who knows what he is about and how to build a bodhran! The deep resonance and the wide range of tonal effects set this bodhran apart as a serious, world class instrument. If you are looking for a bodhran for any reason, then you need look no further. Stunning and beautiful, an exciting and satisfying sound, prompt and reliable service, and a reasonable price. Play on!"
