Having grown up on a farm in Templeboy in West Sligo, Padraig gained an understanding of agriculture and livestock from a young age.
He started his apprenticeship in Sligo town and continued his journey in Sydney and London, where he gained valuable knowledge and expertise in the industry.
Howley’s Family Butchers was established in Lusk, Co. Dublin in 1991, which quickly gained a reputation for quality and value throughout North County Dublin.
Padraig says: “I am passionate about my job as a craft butcher and dedicated to delivering the highest quality product to our customers”.
Our beef, lamb and pork is purchased directly from farmers using the traditional selection process, on Hoof. Our meat is then processed by our skilled craft butchers using time honoured methods of dry aging, hanging, maturing and curing to ensure that it reaches its richest and fullest flavour possible, which sets us apart from supermarkets and other factory produced meat suppliers.
We have a wide selection of homemade products including our legendary Smokey Joe 6oz beef burger, turkey burgers, meatballs, stir fries to name but a few.
Our focus has always been and remains on locally sourced Irish meat. We guarantee the very highest standards of quality assured products with full traceability from farm to fork. We are delighted to offer our customers a traditional butcher service online, allowing you to shop from the comfort of your own home. Order online and discover for yourself that our products truly are ‘a cut above’.
