Connemara Smokehouse Products by Georgina Campbell-Ireland Guide

A number of top quality artisan producers all around Ireland are making a wide range of excellent products, each with its own special signature – and foodies often have fun identifying each one specifically, judging by the size, texture, colour and flavour of the fish to see the man (or woman) behind the product on the plate, and the area it comes from. One of the best fish smokers in the west of Ireland is Graham Roberts of Connemara Smokehouse, and visitors to Connemara are in for a treat when they see the smokehouse signed between Clifden and Ballyconneely – it’s well worth allowing time to call in and see the Roberts family’s business, and of course, buy one or two treats to take home.

Discovery of the day – A day in the life Connemara

Perched at the end of Bunowen Pier, he's happy to demonstrate the hand-made smoking process (tours run Wednesdays at 3pm during the summer), but what catches my eye are the fishy drawings Bridget's grandkids (Graham's kids) have pinned over the cash-register. That's a family business. by Pól Ó Conghaile - Irish Independent Weekend-Travel, 21st March 2009
