About us

Heffernan’s Butchers was established in 1961 by John Heffernan at Convent Hill Ballina. His son Anthony carries on the proud family tradition today, developing the business into a fine food emporium to include Butchery, Bakery, Café & Deli.

As well as providing top quality and fully traceable food we strive to do everything possible to make you feel welcome and comfortable. All food in our delicatessen is prepared by our staff in house. We source all our foods and ingredients from local suppliers and to prepare everything in our own abattoir, kitchen or bakery.

Fine Foods


Anthony Heffernan sources all his meat from local farmers in North Mayo. He hand picks every single animal before they are delivered directly to Heffernan’s fully licensed abattoir. Here they are culled, prepared, dry aged and stored to the “Heffernan’s Fine Food Standard”. Anthony has won Hygiene Award for his abattoir and supplies all meat to the Heffernan’s Fine Foods & Heifer and Hen Restaurant. Butcher’s is open daily with the freshest selection of the best. This hands-on approach and knowledge of the life cycle from Farm to Fork that enables Anthony Heffernan to guarantee full traceability, quality and hygiene.
