About Us

McArdle Meats is owned by Keith Shortt, a third generation butcher. McArdle Meats was established over 50 years ago in Dundalk, Co Louth. Keith started working for McArdle Meats at the tender age of sixteen and after three years working there the opportunity arose to purchase the business. In 2001, Keith armed with a wealth of experience and family recipes handed down through generations took over the Clanbrassil Street store located in Dundalk. Over the years Mc Ardle Meats has grown and now we have four stores located in Clanbrassil Street, Dundalk, The Marshes Shopping Centre, Dundalk, Charlestown Shopping Centre, Dublin and Blackrock, Dundalk

We also operate a state of the art production facility in Dundalk incorporating a production facility for all the raw meats and specialised products as well as a production kitchen for all cooked products and ready meals. The business continues to flourish and we have built up a reputation for quality and innovation. We believe there are four main factors to the success of our business they are good customer service, good quality product, good value for money and good hygiene standards.

1) Good customer Service

We consider ourselves to be craft butchers of distinction. Although we have won many prestigious awards and accolades over the years the compliments paid to us by our customers continues to be the greatest reward. The customer is the focal point of all activities at McArdle Meats. We pride ourselves on high standards and these are achieved by constantly assessing and reassessing every aspect of our business. Like all good teams it is group effort that makes us successful. We do this by persistently listening to our customers and staff and by keeping abreast of new developments within our industry. All our staff are trained to help you in every possible way whether it be choosing the perfect product, cooking advice or meal selection. There is something for everyone from beef to chicken, ready meals to traditional roasts gluten free products, slimming choice products, vegetables and fresh bread. We have built up a loyal customer base that trust us for all their food needs whether it be a party, Sunday roast or just an everyday meal we provide it all. Now we plan to bring this to everyone by introducing our new shop online.

2) Good Quality Product

We believe that we set trends which others follow. We have the experience and a passion to create and supply great food. All our shops are among the finest butchery establishments found in Ireland and we provide the best meats combined with the finest sourced ingredients. Our focus is on high quality products which are a 100% traceable from local suppliers. All our beef goes through a dry aging process. By this we mean the traditional method of developing flavour. After a period of 20 days the meat develops its inherent flavour and deep red hue producing a natural sweetness with superb cooking and eating qualities. In addition to traditional cuts we offer a unique experience in our own easy cook and ready to eat range of products.

3) Good Hygiene Standards

The standards of hygiene and cleanliness at all our stores surpass all EU guidelines and regulations. All our stores are immaculately clean and air conditioned. All our staff are HACCP trained and strive to ensure the customers get the best and safest meat. All staff operate meticulous hygiene systems. Standards are monitored regularly on an on-going and consistent basis. We aim to bring you the best in the very best condition.

4) Good value for money

We provide a range of services covering a wide variety of meats at reasonable prices. We try to keep our costs down so we can pass the savings on to our customers. We have weekly special offers. We offer a text service which keeps our customers up to date with the latest offers. We also provide a saving club and recently we have set up a rewards club.
