Dorothy Ó Tuama

Meet Dorothy, known locally as "the Buffalo Lady!"

The farm guide, Dorothy Ó Tuama standing next to Betsy, the Water Buffalo

Dorothy and Betsy are farm queens, living their best life meeting and greeting on the Macroom Buffalo Farm.

Since 2016, I have been offering exclusive farm-to-table tours of Johnny Lynch's premier water buffalo farm in Killnamartyra. I am the fourth eldest of eleven O'Sullivan siblings from the Lake Hotel family business in Inchigeela. With a strong background in Culinary Arts and Business, I have worked in all aspects of the hotel and catering business, culminating in fulfilling my dream of owning an award-winning restaurant in Clonmel, Co Tipperary, Ireland.


At this stage in my life, I feel very blessed to be able to focus on creating unique and delicious farm tour experiences for all ages in my locality. I conduct  Farm/ Foodie tours on Johnny Lynch's Water Buffalo Farm in Gaeltacht Mhúscraí. My skills now include tour guiding, dairy buffalo farming, animal welfare, food demonstrations, and creating "cheesy" recipes, with a sprinkling of local culture and giggles.

I hope to meet you there!

Guest Feedback

"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 an open evening at the school last night and spoke highly of our field trip to your plant yesterday. Wishing you all the very best of luck in the season ahead. We will organise another visit next year."
