Some nice things people are saying about Kelly's Butchers and our products.
John McKenna, Food writer and The Bridgestone Guide
"Sean Kelly is a revolutionary, and one of the principal instigators and architects of the County Mayo culinary revolution that has blessed the county in the last decade. His creativity, and his passionate championing of his town and his county, is always inspiring, not least because Mr Kelly does it with a twinkle in his eye."
Tom O'Connell, O'Connell's Restaurant Ballsbridge
"It must be the best part of ten years now since we first added Sean Kelly's Newport Black Pudding to our menus. We consider it to be one of the finest Black Puddings in Ireland. It is consistently excellent. It 'sings' on its own ... served with a little Bramley Apple Sauce and some Grainy Mustard Cream - delicious."
Neven Maguire, MacNean Restaurant, Blacklion
“For me Sean Kelly symbolises everything that is good about Irish food, his passion, his love of good food and his products are so consistent and delicious. I am very proud to know him and use his produce in the restaurant”
Georgina Campbell, Ireland Guide, Georgina Campbell Awards
“A legend in the West of Ireland and first port of call for many discerning visitors, this excellent family-run butchers shop operates its own licensed abattoir and is especially famous for sausages and puddings, notably the traditional 'Putóg'. A cheery figure instantly recognisable in his jaunty butchers hat, Sean is the very best kind of butcher, tirelessly championing local produce and constantly dreaming up delicious new ways to give traditional foods relevance in a fast changing world. His Kelly's Greenway Pudding, in particular, was a stroke of genius - developed in celebration of the Gourmet Greenway Food Trail (which goes through Newport), its magic ingredient is seaweed from the nearby Atlantic shoreline and it sports a map of the Greenway trail on the label. The perfect souvenir, Sean Kelly says ‘It’s our modern twist on the old stick of rock.’ And there are plenty more brilliant ideas where that one came from.”
