The shop at the Burren Smokehouse and Visitor Centre (Lisdoonvarna) is a gourmet's delight. Birgitta Hedin-Curtin is a beautiful lady with bags of knowledge and enthusiasm for artisan produced foods, especially those of the Clare region where this shop is located.
In the shop and the visitor centre, Birgitta points out superb cheeses like Burren Gold and Cooleeney, as well as all the Smokehouse's fish specialities, all the while cutting off slivers here and there for tasting. The shop here stocks honeys, chocolates and other sweet treats, teas, relishes and chutneys and jams.
The craft shop section is worth a browse, too, where you will find Irish art, jewellery, music and books. The Visitor Centre in the shop has a traditional smoker on show as well as a short film presentation on the curing and smoking process.
It all makes for an interesting learning experience combined with some food retail therapy, just a short walk away from the main square in historic Lisdoonvarna. Burren Smokehouse hampers are made to order. You can order in the shop (or online) and have it sent as a present to family and friends.
