Traditional Artisan Butchers
Home of the Smokin’ Butcher
Known throughout Ireland as a leading member of the craft butcher fraternity, Hugh Maguire has won numerous awards for his sausages, dry cured rashers and black & white puddings over the years.
Hugh has a love and passion for really good food and the greatest respect for Ireland’s raw, basic ingredients.
After building up a long and established career working in many high-class butcher shops in 1991 he opened his first Butcher Shop in Navan, Co. Meath, with the philosophy of providing the best locally sourced meat at value to his loyal customer base.
In 2016, Hugh purchased a smoke house in Navan, where he began smoking some of his own products and, drawing on his award winning traditional black pudding, the smoked black pudding and The Smokin’ Butcher were born.
