01 // Project Overview

Great craftsmanship on a website for great craftspeople

Founded in 1979, McNeela Music has become a key figure in the Irish traditional music scene. Known for its handcrafted instruments and dedication to quality, the Dublin-based company focuses on preserving Irish music by offering outstanding instruments and nurturing a community of musicians.

Paraic, the founder of McNeela Music started by making a bodhrán for a friend in 1978. Since then McNeela has grown to include a variety of traditional instruments like flutes, concertinas, and stringed instruments.

02 // Outcomes

A beautiful, versatile website

The new McNeela website design is an ambitious one, with Slater Design wanting to convey the craftsmanship and community that surrounds McNeela – they did a great job.

Our development team used BigCommerce and Shogun to develop a site that is true to the beauty of the designs.

 Most important to McNeela was website speed optimisation, and our team not only delivered in this area, but we surpassed their expectations.
