Meet Dorothy, known locally as "the Buffalo Lady!"
Tour Manager and Chef and Betsy the Buffalo
Since 2016, I've offered exclusive farm-to-table tours of Johnny Lynch's premier water buffalo farm in Killnamartyra. I was born the fourth eldest of eleven children into the O'Sullivan family who owned the Lake Hotel in Inchigeela. With a background in Culinary Arts and business, I worked in all aspects of the hotel and catering business culminating in my restaurant in Clonmel. Now, I focus on creating unique, safe, and delicious experiences for all ages back here at home in Gaeltacht Mhúscraí. My skills now also include knowledge of Tour guiding, Dairy Buffalo farming, animal welfare, food, cheesy recipes!!, and local culture. Hope to meet you there!

Many thanks for a delightful tour in glorious sunshine.
Thanks too for a lovely lunch and great company.
I would certainly recommend this tour to anybody, the delight in seeing Water Buffalo up front and the very informative history of Macroom Buffalo Farm producing great Buffalo Mozzarella, etc,

Your tour was unquestionably
the highlight of our 10-day visit to Ireland.
We had some phenomenal tours including exploring the wonderful and historic Dublin city, golfing at Old Head, Falconry in Co Kerry, and a private cruise off the
Your Culinary treats were out of this world. We can't stop telling our friends that they need to visit you when they travel to Ireland.

Thanks so much again!

Good morning Dorothy,
Many thanks for your kind words. We had a fabulous trip yesterday. The girls and I were blown away with your passion and enthusiasm for the enterprise. Such a magnificent business. We had Open Evening at our school last night. Clare and I spoke highly of our field trip to your plant yesterday. Wishing you all the very best of luck for the season ahead.
We will organise another visit next year.
