Connemara Smokehouse is Ireland’s first Food Économusée, a fascinating place to visit and learn all about the traditional Irish process of handcrafting perfect smoked seafood.
Visitors can enjoy a feast for the senses by learning, first-hand, the skills of our team before touching, tasting, taking home, talking about and savouring our famous product.
During the summer months we facilitate educational coach tours and pre-arranged visits on selected days each week. Visitors also have the opportunity to buy handcrafted smoked seafood in our factory shop.
An économusée is designed to be an important cultural tourism attraction and contributes to the sustainability of rural areas through the creation of direct employment and by providing an attraction that disperses tourists to rural regions.
An économusée is a heritage business that earns its keep by combining economy and culture and we are proud to be Ireland’s first food Économusée.
