“ALL local Irish meat – ALL the time! Know the meat you eat!”

Michael Twomey

Michael Twomey Butchers opened in September 1996, in the town of Macroom, Co. Cork; supplying the highest quality, specially selected local fresh Irish Beef, Pork, Lamb, Poultry, Wild Irish Game and Bacon to our customers. We aim to deliver, at all times, only the very finest quality meats, value for money, and excellent service to our valued customers.

Twomey’s are traditional Irish butcher shops, working hand-in-hand with local Irish farmers to produce top quality beef, lamb, pork, low salt home cured bacon, poultry, hand made sausages & burgers. We also offer bespoke cuts, designed for parties, BBQ’s, and special occasions. All our beef is Irish Angus or Hereford, reared in the traditional way in West Cork, supporting our local rural farming community.

We are the first Guaranteed Irish™ accredited butcher in Ireland. All our meat is 100% Irish. Approx 80% of our meat comes from within a 20-mile radius of Macroom Town, with the remaining 20% hailing from East and West Cork predominantly. We always strive to source our meat locally, in an effort to support local agriculture and the local economy.


Michael Twomey Butchers has its own Meat Processing Plant; opened in 2007, further guaranteeing that skilled artisan butchers, assuring superb standards, undertake the quality, handling and processing of the meat.
In 2010, we expanded the business, by opening a new store in Bantry, West Cork. Our highly skilled artisan butchers assist in the smooth running of the business.
We also supply our top quality meats to other artisan butcher shops, cafés, bars, restaurants and hotels all over the country, and abroad.


All our meat is fully traceable; from “Farm to Fork”. Full traceability is displayed at all times in all of our shops.
We are one of the first food companies in Ireland awarded the “Ecolabel” accreditation for our commitment to positive environmental policies and a low carbon footprint.
