About your host

We are beekeepers from Loughrea, County Galway, in the west of Ireland. Sliabh Aughty Honey is a family business, a tradition going back four generations. The land on the mountain is natural and unspoiled with lush meadows full of wildflowers and herbs, and raised bog areas covered with purple heather and bog cotton. A large proportion of the mountain is now an area of conservation.
