About us

Peter & Birgitta Curtin

The Burren Smokehouse is a family-run business that was set up in 1989 by Birgitta & Peter Curtin. We believe in Finest Quality Food Products, good customer care and a good group of team workers to ensure that we keep up our standards.

We carefully source our quality raw materials for the Burren Smoked Salmon, Trout, Mackerel, and Cheese. We control our own quality standards with backup of regular testing from independent laboratories and regular checks from organisations who certify us. The Smokehouse currently employs a staff of twelve, and ships within Ireland and to countries all over the world.

And these are the associations we are part of:
