We are specialists in products from slow-smoked, fresh wild-caught fish devoid of any artificial additives or preservatives.

We don’t use farmed fish; the fish we buy in is caught locally and from sustainable sources.




Woodcock Smokery is based in West Cork, in Ireland, close to the pretty seaside village of Castletownshend. We work exclusively with wild fish, and cure our products in a traditional manner. This takes prime quality fish, native hardwood timbers, skill and time.

All aspects of the process, such as filleting, salting, pin-boning and slicing, are all done by hand.

We are best known for our exceptional award-winning wild smoked salmon. We also provide a wide range of smoked fish products including mackerel, herring, tuna, haddock and pollack using both hot and cold-smoking techniques. 

Our reputation in the smoked fish industry both nationally and internationally is extremely high, both for our attention to quality and taste and for our commitment to wild fish and sustainable fishing methods. We believe that what makes our smoked fish worthy of its reputation is the difference in taste and texture achieved from the time that our skilled team spend preparing it.

Everything is done by hand, and there are no shortcuts. Wild salmon, in particular, rewards this extra attention and our customers around the globe recognise that.      

In our web site you will find information about Woodcock Smokery, our methods, our products and how you can enjoy them for yourself. If you have questions then please don’t hesitate to contact us.

What is the best food present anyone has ever given you?

Sally Barnes, the founder and owner of Woodcock Smokery in Cork, sent me a side of her Woodcock smoked salmon. She’s been smoking fish since 1981 and manages to preserve a unique fresh taste.
