Ciaran McNally

Ciaran McNally began making guitars at the age of 15 years old. After studying guitar making to diploma level at London Metropolitan University, he has since gone on to apprentice to several of Ireland’s foremost instrument makers. This year’s HGGS coincides with his 10 Year anniversary of guitar making. While working for other luthiers, Ciaran kept his own brand of guitars on-going, and now seeks to perfect these based on his ethos that every handmade instrument should sound great, be beautiful, and play well…
“To Hear, To See, To Feel.”

I’m really looking forward to indulging my personal passion for guitars by meeting and seeing the work of all the other luthiers from all over the world. This year HGGS is particularly special for me as it falls almost exactly 10 Years from when I first started making guitars!
