Woodchips in smoker

Welcome to Ballyhack Smokehouse, a family-run artisan smokehouse located in the picturesque seaside village of Arthurstown, Co. Wexford. Whilst we specialise in a number of different smoked products, our premium cold smoked salmon is our most popular.

The Walsh’s come from a long tradition of salmon fishing with Michael and his son Paddy formerly 4th & 5th generation fishermen. We take pride in the craftsmanship we dedicate to smoke our salmon.

We received our first smoker from an elderly gentleman across the river who used it to smoke fish as far back as the 1960s. Today, being one of Ireland’s oldest smokers, we are esteemed in the fact that this same smoker is producing award winning product today.

We use beech wood to smoke our salmon rather than sawdust. The wood chips smoulder slowly, allowing a distinctive smoke to infuse the flesh. The salmon is gently smoked for a period of 48 hours.
