The Burren Smokehouse

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Birgitta Curtin is a major voice in Irish speciality food, and she has been a unique, creative talent, right from the start of her working life in Lisdoonvarna.
She established the Burren Smokehouse in 1989, which was when we first met the handsome and hard-working twenty-something blonde, bringing to the traditional pub what she learnt from her parents on their farm in Sweden: "enjoy freshly and preserve cleverly!”
That exclamation mark gives her away: her nature is studded with exclamation marks, and she is one of those people who sees the dynamic in food, and manages to capture it for us. Because of her energy, the success of the Burren Smokehouse was never in doubt, but who could have imagined that Ms Curtin would have created such a gold standard food brand with her smoked fish, as well as creating a gold standard tourist destination in the Burren Smokehouse. The Smokehouse is a don’t-miss! destination on the Wild Atlantic Way, because everything here has been carefully and thoughtfully curated.
Birgitta Curtin is a peerless advocate for good food, and sustainable, authentic tourism, and it all stems from her ability to produce the most delicious foods, and her hunger to feed people well. She is a County Clare Champion.
