Hanlon Smokehouse Dublin – Smoked Salmon – Seafood – Scallops – Mussels – Cod
“In the 1800’s, the Hanlon brothers, Michael and Paddy, were fishermen in the small coastal town of Omeath, Co. Louth. They faced adversity, as potatoes were the staple diet for the majority of the population and fish was not regarded as real food. The brothers had the ambition to make their passion for fish a success and identified the Pale as a potential market.
In 1845, they decided to set up their first fish shop in Moore Street, Dublin. This gamble paid off and they became known across Dublin as top quality fishmongers. Their success was further highlighted when referenced in James Joyce’s world famous book Ulysses. Five generations later and Hanlon’s Smokehouse remains faithful to the original recipe – ‘hand fillet the freshest salmon, add a pinch of salt, a little smoke and let time take its time’.
At Hanlon’s Smokehouse we have a long established working relationship with leading hotels, restaurants in Dublin and Michelin-starred chefs. We place a strong emphasis on providing a traditional service while striving to meet the ever-changing demands of our clients.”
