The Burren Smokehouse

Burren Smokehouse

Burren Smokehouse - High quality smoked salmon

The Burren Smokehouse is a family-run business that was set up in Lisdoonvarna in 1989 by Birgitta & Peter Curtin, who also run the Roadside Tavern (look here for more information)
Call into their Visitor Centre (in which Charles worked for a couple of years) and get a taste of their Burren smoked Irish salmon. There you can also watch a DVD presentation about the smoking process (free of charge) - available in English, German, French, Italian and Dutch - and have a look at the first kiln (the "oven" for the smoking process) they used when they first set up the company.
The Visitor Centre is also a gourmet food store with local products and a very nice craft shop. They offer a worldwide mail order service (also available from their website) - pick from their wide range of products and have it shipped to yourself or your friends and family as a souvenir from Ireland or as a Christmas treat !
