Bay Lough Cheese is owned and operated by husband and wife, Dick and Anne Keating. Originally an attempt to provide her family with cheese from their surplus milk, Anne's experiments in cheese making were hampered by a lack of experience and knowledge. After a number of relatively unsuccessful attempts, Anne developed a greatly improved cheese that had business potential.[1] Typically considered a trade that must be taught, the Keating's are Ireland's only self-taught cheesemakers. They were also among the early adopters of naturally bandaging (coating with wax) cheese.[2]

Bay Lough Cheese produces a range of cheddar-style cheeses using vegetarian rennet and unpasteurised milk. A small amount of cheese is produced using pasteurised milk in the same range.[3]
