Irish Harp Makers

The following is a directory of full-time and part-time Irish harp makers currently operating in Ireland. If you are a harp maker currently operating in Ireland, and wish to be added to our list please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

This list of harp makers is provided to assist people who may wish to procure a harp from one of the many Irish harp makers. Publication of this list is not an endorsement of any harp maker and we cannot vouch for or recommend any one harp maker over another. Harps are expensive instruments and accordingly we urge consumers to proceed with caution and conduct their own due diligence when purchasing an instrument. Accordingly, the principle of caveat emptor should be applied.
