Over the decades, since we started welcoming visitors to our smokehouse, we have always been amazed at the level of curiosity and the inquisitive questions we were asked. It is wonderful to be able to share our knowledge and information about salmon and salmon smoking with the world!
Another field of mystery is the brewing of beer. Not many people have access to the intricate knowledge that master brewers need to have to produce craft beers, like the ones in the Burren Brewery which can only be enjoyed in the Roadside Tavern and Burren Storehouse.
Realising that there is a lot of demand for information in these areas, we have come up with a combined "masterclass and behind the scenes" tour which can be booked.
It gives the visitor a visual and hands-on guided tour through the Burren Smokehouse, into areas that would usually be off-limits for non-staff members. This is of course only available for a very small group size at a time, and after putting on protective clothing.
Afterwards, the Burren Brewery will be in the limelight at the Roadside Tavern for a guided beer tasting by the master brewer Peter Curtin himself.
To round off the experience, a tasting plate with different marinades of Burren Smoked Irish Organic Salmon, Trout and Mackerel will be served.
