Crowley’s butchers is one of those culinary cornerstones that has built the food reputation of Midleton. It’s an archetype of the best Irish butcher’s shop – creative; dynamic; focused; dedicated to service; hard-working, and passionate. They participate in all the local festivals, they take part in all the butcher’s competitions, and from them they haul home loads of trophies that attest to their skills and their endless innovation. It can be quite an easy thing to take a shop like Crowley’s for granted, so it’s worth quoting the experience of McKennas’ Guide editor, William Barry, who is currently working in Boston, where he has found that sourcing healthy, safe meat is extremely expensive, and who concludes: “Irish people don't know how lucky they are to have what we have, and have such easy access to it.”
Well, not only do we have the best meat in the world, we also have the best butcher’s shops, stafffed by skilled and friendly people who want to make sure that your next meal is one to remember. We are lucky to have butcher’s shops like Crowley’s, and don’t forget it.
