Roscommon Lamb

Did you know...

There’s no lamb in Ireland like Roscommon lamb. Roaming free in the fields, eating lush grass growing on limestone-rich soil, cared for with the true passion of farmers who understand their craft and their customers - whether the end result is served at a local restaurant or taken away to cook at home, the taste is uniquely sweet.

Ireland’s Only Lamb Festival

Roscommon has the highest lamb output in Ireland. Little wonder Roscommon is home to Ireland’s only lamb festival – a celebration held every May not just to laud our lovely lamb, but as an excuse for a royal knees-up. Farm walks, kids’ cookery classes and shearing world record attempts are just the start of the boisterous events.

Local Voices

“To get a real taste for the county, Roscommon Lamb Stew is a must! Hearty portions swimming in a rosemary and thyme broth with
 veg, carrots and potatoes shoring up succulent chunks of lamb – it’s our much loved signature dish!”
