Cork is the home of the Dairy Industry in Ireland with the Golden Vale spreading north from Cork city. For centuries butter was exported from Cork Harbour around the world and the first Food Exchange was opened in Cork. Due to the importance of butter making to the rural economy the skill of cheesemaking was lost from our culinary skills. From the 1970s onwards artisan Cheese started to be made in Ireland again and 70% of the artisan cheeses in Ireland are now made in Co Cork. Today we offer a tour of the cheesemakers and artisan producers of Cork over 4 days. 

Cheesemaking is a seasonal activity and is busiest from May to August. Walk the fields, and see the animals whose milk is made into cheese. Meet the cheesemakers and enjoy tasting the Cheese. Tour Starts 9.00 on Sunday 11 September and finishes at Cork airport or train station on Wednesday 14th at 15.00
