Maja Binder, the acclaimed Swiss-trained producer of the Dingle Peninsula Cheese range, runs this gorgeous little cheese and speciality food shop - a ‘must-visit’ destination for foodies when in Dingle.

The Little Cheese Shop

Maja Binder, the renowned Swiss-trained producer of the Dingle Peninsula Cheese range, opened this gorgeous little cheese and speciality food shop in 2011 and it quickly became a ‘must-visit’ destination for foodies when in Dingle.


The heady aroma of many wonderful cheeses works its magic the minute you put your head around the door, and any cheese lover who enters is sure to be lost to the world for quite some time...


Maja’s Dingle Pensinsula cheeses form the foundation of the range stocked, of course – her own favourite, and the one that has brought her the most of many awards, is Dilliskus Cheese, made with seaweed collected by her partner, Olivier ‘On The Wild Side’ Beaujouan – but she also stocks a carefully selected range of other Irish and continental cheeses.


Cheeses you’ll find here include not only famous European examples like Roquefort, Stilton and Manchego, and Irish stars like Cashel Blue, Cooleeney, Gubbeen and St Tola, but also lesser known names such as the green-waxed Emerald (from Co Cork), Millhouse sheeps’ cheese (Co Offaly) and Sunview goats’ cheese (Co Cork). Details of the full range stocked can be found on their website.


Olivier’s ‘On the Wild Side’ products, which include pork and seafood patés and terrines, pickled sea vegetables, salami locally shellfish, are on sale in the shop and also at several food markets including Limerick Milk Market, Dingle Farmers’ Market, Castlegregory Country Market and Kenmare Farmers’ Market.


Other treats on sale at this culinary treasure trove include their own ‘limited edition’ butter and handmade butter (and other dairy products) from Glenilen Farm in West Cork; gorgeous local Dovinia chocolates (which can be bought individually – one tiny taste of heaven); freshly-baked breads from craft baker Bácús Bhréanainn; carefully chosen store cupboard items and wines – and several books, including Glynn Anderson and John McLaughlin’s “Farmhouse Cheeses of Ireland – A Celebration” (Collins Press 2011).


Truly a must-visit shop when visiting Dingle – don’t miss it!

Open Tue-Fri 11-6, Sat 11-5. Closed Sun. abbreviations
