Our ambition at Killenure Dexter Gourmet is to honour the survival of the Dexter breed by utilising everything that this extraordinary animal has to offer. Our product range will continue to reflect this, with an increasing range of high-quality goods produced by artisan craft-workers from around Ireland.


At Killenure, we draw inspiration from the natural world. Given the extraordinary heritage of both the Dexter breed – and the surroundings which we work in – we also take the long-term view when it comes to operating our business, and ensuring its survival for future generations.

Currently, we have a selection of Dexter bone and horn that we are currently drying out in the ruins of the castle. We aim to make a collection of carved accessories and embellishments with this, which you will soon find on presentation boxes of Dexter products. We hope that this will be the start of a journey, originating with sustainability, and ending in truly unique creative output, produced by artisan craft workers, using Dexter bone and horn.
