Beekeepers from Loughrea Co Galway in the west of Ireland located on the Sliabh Aughty Mountains. A family run business. A proud family tradition going back four generations.

The mix of farming land and rugged mountain give a great range of flora from the peaty and limestone soil. Typical plants are pussy willow, Elderberry, Sycamore, Dandelion, Whitethorn, Chestnut, clover, Blackberry, wild herbs and Heather.
