Durrus Cheese is a family-run business based in West Cork since 1979.

Jeffa Gill is one of the earliest established cheesemakers in Ireland and today, along with her daughter, she continues to produce award-winning cheeses that are carefully handcrafted on the family farm.

The Durrus Cheese range can be found on good cheese counters across Ireland, the UK, USA as well as Australia.

Fast approaching its fourth decade Durrus Cheese is still handmade by Jeffa Gill along with her daughter Sarah Hennessy, Ann McGrath and the rest of the team. The cheese continues to win awards at both national and international level, most recently winning 2 and 3 Gold Stars for the Durrus Mini and the Durrus Óg at the Great Taste Awards in the UK.

We are now producing four cheeses and will continue to make delicious, high quality artisan cheese from the excellent milk produced from the rugged terrain of West Cork.
