The Story of Goatsbridge begins over 800 years ago back in 1180, when the Monks of Jerpoint Abbey near Thomastown, Co Kilkenny fished in the fast flowing waters of The Little Arrigle River in the heart of The Nore Valley. In 1961 this river gave life to the creation of their first fish ponds; running through our lands it now forms the heart of one of Irelands best known trout farms. In 1990 the second generation of their family continued to develop the farm, and in 2010 a state of the art processing and packaging facility was added to the farm to further ensure the quality of the trout produced on the farm.
Today, husband and wife team Mag and Ger Kirwan are at the center of the Goatsbridge story. They live on the farm with their family and work together to carry on the proud tradition of purity and sustainability. Each daily catch comes directly from the crystal clear Irish waters of The Little Arrigle to your table. They have a passion for trout, which comes across in the quality of their product.
