After visiting Achill Island just before opening Aimsir restaurant we knew we had to use their mountain lambs and sheep. The way they are raised in a truly free-to-roam manner, which allows them to have a unique diet of seaweed and heather is what gives them their superb flavour. You just know when eating the meat that the animals have had the best life being able grazing up the mountains and down to the beaches. For me, they have the perfect balance of fat, lean meat, tenderness and flavour. This is what puts them ahead of the rest, in my opinion.
