An excellent rind-washed cheese made by the Steele family on their small farm under a mountain called Mishkish, overlooking the Atlantic in furthest, remotest most-westerly Ireland. It's made from full-fat pasteurised milk from their farm (and that of two neighbours). Cheeses are make in 200g & 1.5kg rounds (the former being known as 'dotes') and aged for between 4 and 10 weeks (but continue to develop and soften for up to 3 months). They are available throughout the year. For more information contact Quinlan Steele, Eyeries, Beara, County Cork Tel: 353 (0) 27 74079 (   email:
