We are Beekeepers on the Sliabh Aughty Mountains; this mountain covers East Galway, North Clare and runs into the Burren. We are a family run business. A family tradition going back four generations. Our hives are in various locations on the mountain, which is a mix of wild rugged mountain and good farming land. A large proportion of the mountain is now an area of conservation. The mix of farming land and rugged mountain give us a great range of flora from the peaty and limestone soil, all natural for the bees. Our honey is 100% raw,Unheated and natural we single filter and Jar our Honey allowing for the pollens, medicinal and antibacterial values to be retained.
