A Family Tradition Since 1902
The Cahill family have been farming the lush green pasturelands of Newcastle West in Co. Limerick since 1902. We are one of the oldest artisanal cheese making families in Ireland using time-honoured methods and recipes passed down through the years to create our outstanding speciality cheddar cheese, matured to perfection.
Today we employ a small, skilled team of 20 people overseen by the fourth generation of the Cahill family marrying our traditional skills and old recipes with modern technology.
All of our cheese is made in small batches. We use pasteurised milk from grass-fed, Irish cows and we only use 100% natural, locally sourced ingredients.
Our cheese has won recognition from around the globe having won a Gold Star from the Guild of Fine Foods and Silver at both the Great Taste Awards and the Mondial du Fromage. We are also members of Bord Bia’s Origin Green, Ireland’s food and drink sustainability programme.
