Located on the picturesque Connemara coast in County Galway, the smokehouse has evolved into a cherished destination for visitors. Year after year, enthusiasts of fine cuisine gather to witness firsthand the meticulous craftsmanship of the Roberts family, as they continue to create the world's most exquisite smoked seafood delicacies.
