Irish salmon is one of Ireland’s treasures! All the more reason to create an interactive museum entirely dedicated to this fish with such a noble and subtle taste! This is what the “Taste The Atlantic – The Salmon Experience” proposes. Based in Lisdoonvarna, the establishment offers you a plunge into the heart of history, but also the myths and legends surrounding Irish salmon. An exciting tour that showcases the product, as well as the unique Irish expertise in salmon farming. A 100% gourmet visit, for lovers of great culinary products!
The museum is brand new and beautiful and dates from 2019. It is housed in an adjacent building of the Burren Smokehouse, an establishment that offers home-made smoked salmon (the salmon is smoked on the spot, according to ancestral techniques recognized in Ireland).
The Taste The Atlantic – The Salmon Experience is a huge interactive museum, which tells the story of salmon, its place in Irish mythology (the famous salmon of knowledge), and its farming methods.
You will learn that almost 80% of Irish salmon is certified organic. It is farmed in fish farms that respect the needs of the fish (without overpopulation), and is exclusively fed with GMO-free products. Ethical and responsible processes that contribute to making Irish salmon an internationally renowned product that stands out from Norwegian and Scottish salmon.
The centre offers an interactive exhibition, and also displays traditional objects related to salmon farming in Ireland.
It also features more than 24 local Irish producers specialising in fish smoking, aquaculture (salmon, mackerel), and seafood (oysters, Irish mussels, lobster, crab, etc.).
You will discover their ancestral techniques combined with today’s modern methods. Possibility to taste some of their products on site, including the Burren Smokehouse salmon.
