Just had a nice chat with Peter and Birgitta Curtin, owners of the Burren Smokehouse in Lisdoonvarna. check out for info on their products, the shop and to order online, particulaly their beautiful hampers for the holidays!  The smokehouse has won 5 awards this autumn for their honey,whiskey and fennel organic smoked salmon, which I ordered to take home to NJ for holiday parties.  Peter and Birgitta also own the Roadside Tavern, next door to the Smokehouse, a traditional pub that has been in Peter’s family for over 100 years. check out I’ve spent many memorable nights there listening to really good trad.  The craic is great and this time of year when it’s just us “locals” barman Billy Archbold lights the open fire creating a welcoming, warm atmosphere.  The Smokehouse is selling Coming Home To Cook and I restocked for holiday shopping.  It makes a perfect present, colorful, useful, good stories and light weight for shipping. Now that Eason’s has picked it up, it’s even more available countrywide, just ask your local bookstore for it.  Biodh la deas agat (have a nice day)  Mhaire.
