About Leahy Beekeeping

Sliabh Aughty Honey & Natural Irish skincare

We are Beekeepers from Loughrea Co Galway in the west of Ireland located on the Sliabh Aughty Mountains.  We are a family run business with beekeepng being a proud 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.  The land is natural and unspoiled with lots of lush meadows, full of wild flowers and herbs, and raised bog areas covered with purple heather and bog cotton. A large proportion of the mountain is now an area of conservation keeping it the perfect place for our hives.

The mix of farming land and rugged mountain give us a great range of flora from the peaty and limestone soil , which gives our honey a unique and pure flavour. 

Primary plants and trees that give our honey its unique flavour: 

Spring 

Pussy willow, hazel, Sycamore, beech, chestnut, white thorn, daffodil, snowdrops, mountain ash, Heather, Gorse, Fruit trees.

Summer

Hawthorn, Dandelion, clover, blackberry, Gorse, Lime

Autumn

Ivy, heather, privet, Knapweed.

Our honey is 100% raw, single filtered and unpasteurized, so it retains all of the pollen’s, antibacterial and medicinal properties

100% pot of gold

Our natural skincare products are made from the beeswax from our own hives and other natural organic ingredients. They soften and moisturize. The creams have good healing properties and medicinal values
