A Taste of Ireland Carrigaline Farmhouse Cheese

Carrigaline-farmhouse cheese

The multi award winning Carrigaline Farmhouse Cheese has been handmade by Anne and Pat O’Farrell on their farm at ‘The Rock’ just outside Carrigaline since 1984. The cheese made from pasteurised Friesian cows, is available in 3 flavours, natural, beech –smoked and garlic and herb and are free from artificial additives and preservatives.

The cheese wheel products are very pretty and almost too good looking to eat having been dipped in food grade wax 6-times.
Carrigaline is derived from the Irish “Carraig-Ui-Leighin” meaning Rock of the Lynes who were a local clan who built a castle on a limestone rock in the area in 1170. It is under the shadow of this old Castle that Anne and Pat make their fabulous cheese.
