Calvey Family's Achill Mountain Lamb

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

Many years ago we created a simple formula to describe the best Irish artisan foods. All these great foods, we argued, shared The 4Ps: a Person; a Product; a Place; and a Passion. We were surely talking about the Calvey’s family’s Achill Mountain Lamb, for here is a unique Irish West Coast artisan food that personifies the 4Ps.
There is the Person, most particularly Martin Calvey, who created the brand that has been carried on by his family. There is the Product, in this case the sweetest lamb imaginable, fed on heather and seaweeds. There is the Place: the soaring glories and beauties of Achill Island, truly a place apart. And there is the Passion, shown by the Calvey family’s devoted work over more than half a century to breed and protect this unique food. There is no other food like Calvey’s Achill Mountain Lamb.
