Group Smokehouse Tours

Connemara Smokehouse ToursWe operate Private Group Tours all year round by appointment only.

The Connemara Smokehouse specialises in producing wild smoked salmon and organic smoked salmon. As Connemara’s longest established Smokehouse, this is a fascinating location to visit, take a tour and purchase a great array of traditionally hand-prepared seafood products.

Tour of the Connemara Smokehouse takes approx. 45 minutes. Graham or Nicholas will take you behind the scenes and will show the filleting of salmon & explain the salting and smoking techniques, then you will see the hand-slicing and packing of the Irish smoked salmon all the way to the finished product. You will also enjoy a tasting of our fantastic Organic Smoked Salmon. We are sure you will then want to buy some to take home, eat some while you are here on holiday, or send friends and family a smoked salmon gift for Christmas, Birthday’s, Anniversaries etc. It’s educational, fun and delicious.

The Connemara Smokehouse is located right on the water’s edge at Bunowen Pier, and the surrounding area has exceptional views of the Twelve Bens mountain range, the castle of Connaught’s historic Pirate Queen, Grainne Mhoal (Grace O’Malley).

It is also renowned for its breeding of the world famous Connemara Pony which can be seen in fields towards the Smokehouse. This area contains some of the most tranquil, unspoilt and rugged landscapes with beautiful clear water and sandy beaches.
