The Burren Smokehouse is a family-run business that was set up 20 years ago, in 1989, by Birgitta & Peter Curtin in Lisdoonvarna, Co. Clare. We believe in finest quality food products, good customer care and a good group of team workers to ensure that we keep up our high standards. Birgitta and husband Master Smoker Peter carefully source Irish quality raw materials to produce their superb smoked salmon, mackerel, trout and eel in their highly acclaimed, award winning traditional smokehouse. We also smoke cheese from one of Clare’s renowned cheese makers. The Smokehouse currently employs a staff of twelve.
Apart from the Smoked Fish Products, we also provide the top-end gift market with ideas: we offer a wide range of food hampers. All products can be ordered over the Burren Smokehouse website, or bought directly in our visitor centre in Lisdoonvarna where you can also watch a short video about the smoking process, experience our first kiln that is displayed there and taste our smoked salmon.
– Artisan smokehouse = small, handcrafted production.
Burren Smokehouse is a member of Slow Food Ireland and Good Food Ireland, two prestigious organisations concerned with the promotion and marketing of handcrafted artisan food made in Ireland.
The high quality of our products is widely acclaimed and acknowledged. Over the years, our products have won a lot of awards: for example at the Great Taste Awards, London, “Best Product of the Show” at the last three SHOP exhibitions etc, and the Bridgestone Awards. The Burren Smokehouse regularly features on national radio, in the print media, and on TV programmes about food. The products are served on arrival of the yachts during the Volvo Ocean Race 2008/09 and are served at many international events.
