North Coast Smokehouse

Handcrafted & Delicious

We specialise in producing smoked foods naturally, in the picturesque coastal town of Ballycastle in Co. Antrim.

We recently joined the international Économusée network of open artisan workshops, so you can visit us in our 'micro-smokery' and find out more about what we do!

We produce award-winning smoke-roasted organic salmon, smoked sea salt, and smoked dulse seaweed, smoked black pepper, smoked rapeseed oil and smoked trout.

You can shop online, find us at a local market, visit us, book a tour/workshop, or buy from one of our stockists.


Online Shop

Smoked salt, smoked black pepper, and smoked dulse are all available now. Our smoked fish will be available again by mid- August.



Hi all, while Covid-19 continues to have an impact on all of us to some extent, we hope you are making the most of summer "staycationing", and that you are all keeping safe and well.

Our business customers have mostly opened up again in some way and the outdoor markets are also operating again. We are selling all of our products at markets, and our online shop should be fully stocked again from August. 

The Smokehouse

Tours of the smokehouse, and visits from the public, have been cancelled since early March 2020 and remain so.

However, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions, or if there is anything we can do for you!
