About Connemara Fisheries

Connemara Fisheries is located in Cornamona, Connemara in the heart of the Gaeltacht (Gaelic speaking area). The smokehouse is on the shoreline of Lough Corrib which feeds the River Corrib flowing into Galway Bay.  
We source only the best raw material for smoking.  The premium product we source ensures our Smoked Salmon is simply delicious.  We smoke all our Salmon onsite at our fully approved premises in Cornamona, factory approval number GY0102EC.
Our Salmon is smoked in a traditional method using Oak and Beech wood chips.  This adds a delicate, succulent flavour during the smoking process. Our sides of Smoked Salmon are then sliced for you to enjoy with minimum fuss.  We take our time salting, curing and smoking our Salmon to ensure our finished product tastes delicious with every production run.  The exquisite taste of Atlantic Silver will satisfy the most discerning epicurean palate.
