Inagh Farmhouse Cheese

Inagh Farmhouse Cheese

St Tola Irish Goat Cheese is known as one of the premium artisan products in Ireland. It is the finest, gourmet goats cheese and has been hand-made in the townland of Inagh just south of the Burren in County Clare since the early 1980s.

The cheeses were originally made by Meg and Derrick Gordon who developed the fine quality of the cheese and helped establish a gourmet cottage industry in a rural area. In the late nineties, they were keen to retire and the business was taken over by their neighbour Siobhan Ni Ghairbhith in 1999.

Over time Siobah‡n and her dedicated team have made significant developments to the family farm. Siobh‡n has developed the business from a local industry to an internationally recognised brand. The cheese, however, is still hand-made in small batches as the artisanal quality and provenance of our cheese is paramount.

St Tola Irish Goat Cheese is made by Inagh Farmhouse Cheese Ltd. and is a member of CçIS (The Irish Farmhouse Cheesemakers Association) and the Slow Food movement. It is also part of the Burren Food Trail and is just a few miles from the Wild Atlantic Way

The farm receives French students every year from February to October from ESA College in Angers and Purpan INP in Toulouse.

St Tola has been supported by Bord Bia, Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Clare County Enterprise Board, Teagasc, Limerick Institute of Technology (Research & Development) and LEADER – National Rural Network.

One of Ireland’s most famous sights, the Cliffs of Moher are entirely vertical and the cliff edge is abrupt. On a clear day the views are tremendous, with the Aran Islands etched on the waters of Galway Bay. From the cliff edge you can just hear the booming far below as the waves crash and gnaw at the soft shale and sandstone.

With a due-west exposure, sunset is the best time to visit.
