Anyone who wants to take home a memory of Roundstone or Ireland should visit this store. Malachy has a super knowledge of bodhran making in Ireland.... I have a bodhran of his at home and it is a great musical instrument. He is a lovely person who welcomed all who came into his store. There is also a great choice of Irish photographs to take home. Enjoy this visit... it is a must!!

We had the pleasure of visiting Roundstone Music and Crafts on a rainy blustery day, while in Ireland visiting our son. Malachi was very helpful and informative as to the making of his drums, and things to consider when buying them. but more than that, the general conversation we had with him was so enjoyable, and the recommendations that Malachi gave us for enjoying nearby attractions, such as Ballynahinch Castle, proved to be one of the highlights of our trip. we look forward to making a return visit to this charming shop when back in Ireland.
