Meet the Maker
Father and daughter team, Sean and Fiona Haugh have put their considerable talents together to create a wonderful enterprise that provides its customers with top quality local food along with excellent hospitality, all under the one roof.
Sean has three decades worth of experience in sourcing and rearing excellent livestock, all processed and managed in house ensuring customers have clear and direct traceability back to the locality.
Fiona and her father have developed this base enterprise into an exciting retail and dining offering, seamlessly bringing together the connected industries of food production and retail and hospitality.
Sean Haugh produces his own Angus cattle and Charolass yews on a grass-fed system, the animals roam free, feeding on the rich in nutrient clover pastures that make up the family farm in coastal Kilkee, Co. Clare. This combination of location and grazing results in beef and lamb products with an irresistible depth of flavour and tenderness. Also the beef is dry aged for 21 days in order to further preserve this rich flavour. The flavour is just so, that hardly any additional seasonings are needed, providing you with an authentic taste.
As a primary producer, Sean operates a fully EU licenced Abattoir in supply of the family’s retail shop. Costumers get to enjoy a true farm to fork experience as the meat is expertly prepared by their inhouse team and available fresh each day in their Craft Butchers.
The producer element only makes up one part of what is such an exciting retail offering. Sean’s daughter Fiona has developed the Market House as a destination for quality home produced food with local ingredients at its heart. With Sean’s passion for producing fine quality meats combined with Fiona’s retail background, they have successfully created an exciting shop and dining experience that has become a foodie destination for visitors near and far.
The Market House Ennistymon brings together the family’s beef and lamb production in a retail setting along with a dynamic foodhall, cafe and deli that will give you a wealth of local food to savour whether you dine in their cafe our browse the food shop and enjoy at home.
Sustainable practices are of great importance to the Haugh family and are rigorously utilised throughout the business. They follow an Environmental Action Plan that monitors managing waste, water, energy, travel impact and purchases. The plan is reviewed annually.
