Our Facility

Here at Feoil O’Criostoir, we’re delighted to operate a purpose-built abattoir that’s considered the best medium-sized abattoir in Ireland.

  • Our state-of-the-art premises and processing equipment are specifically designed to dress beef and lamb in both a traditional and hygienic manner.
  • The unique design of our slaughter-line enables us to dress the animal without using water on the carcasses. This approach results in the carcasses having a firm, dry fat cover.
  • Our facility is regulated by Cork County Council Veterinary Department.

Our Approach

With a team of management and staff who offer genuine commitment, energy and ability, Feoil O’Criostoir is focused on providing complete reliability and traceability, coupled with outstanding customer service.

  • Having implemented the latest technology in terms of integrated quality systems and order processing, all transactions are handled with maximum efficiency.
  • We guarantee that doing business with us will be an entirely hassle-free experience!

Note: Our traceability, hygiene and quality standards are verified by numerous agencies, including Bord Bia  and the Food Safety Authority of Ireland. Feoil O’Criostoir is also a member of the Associated Craft Butchers of Ireland

Environment, Animal Welfare & Food Safety

Criostoir O’Crualaoi and the team at Feoil O’Criostoir, believe that the food we eat is only as good as the care and attention given to each stage of the production cycle.

As such, we only source animals from our own farm or from reputable farmers we know and trust. Each of our local producers is obliged to implement strict procedures that cover every aspect of their farming practices – from breeding and feeding practices, to our renowned high standards of animal welfare.
