Patrick Mulcahy of Ballinwillin House
I have been farming at Ballinwillin House since 1985. I run the farm and B&B with my wife Miriam and the help of our 3 children, Sheena, John & Elayne when they are available from College and work. Ballinwillin Farm specializes in rare breeds of old Ireland, Red Deer, Wild Boar, the Irish Grazer Pig and the Iron age Pig. These pig breeds were extinct in Ireland and we have successfully re-introduced them. All the food from “Ballinwillin House Farm” is produced on the farm and processed in a licensed abattoir and is also organic. We run a Bed & Breakfast on the farm and we also have gourmet evenings supplying 8 course meals to our Guest and produce our own wine “Chateau Mulcahy”in Hungary which has 14 varieties and we often do wine tastings in our cellar for guests. Our main business is on line sales of our food products in Ireland, U.K. & Europe.
Running Ballinwillin Farm is a beautiful way of life and the job satisfaction is wonderful. We are the product and the product is us!
