Some restaurants to try our beef with someone else cooking it!

For the discerning consumer who values food that is local and naturally produced.

Donabate Dexter beef is from a local, healthy, happy herd of pedigree Dexter cattle (one of Ireland’s six native breeds) managed ethically and naturally as a family unit of bull, cows, young stock and calves. The Dexters are free range grazed on large paddocks (in various local locations, most recently on grounds of the former Turvey Golf Club) with access to plenty of natural forage and shelter.

Donabate Dexter selection boxes, roasts, steaks, steak pieces and steak burgers can be purchased directly here. We offer free local delivery for any order over €20 and free delivery nationwide for orders over €80. All of our beef is matured for a minimum 3 weeks, the striploin, sirloin (rump), and rib cuts for steaks are dry aged for up to 4 weeks.

Donabate Dexter is a collaborative partnership involving local farmers and local craft butchers, using land rented from Fingal County council and other local landowners. You are most welcome to come and visit the herd by appointment, to see for yourself how we do things and how the cattle are cared for, just drop us a line here.
