Kerrygold Butter Review

Butter? Yes, please! Make it a triple! As you can surmise I am a fan of real butter and not the imitation. Butter fans will absolutely enjoy Kerrygold butter which I enthusiastically recommend; your potatoes, vegetables, muffins and baking dishes will thank you!
A new memorable find! Kerrygold Butter for your eating and baking pleasure!


Kerrygold Butter Review

Grass fed cows throughout Ireland contribute to a golden, creamy butter that deserves its' place among premium butters whether in the United States or United Kingdom.  I have found a huge difference in taste between brand name and store brand butters and now I must add a third comparison category for the premium butter.

The butter is premium in taste, but I was pleasantly surprised the price is not at a premium. The cost of Kerrygold butter is comparable to brand name sticks and tubs of butter! Kerrygold has also entered the big box stores and grocery stores and the prices can be even less expensive than brand name butter.  Kerrygold is also available online as are other Kerrygold dairy products.


The fat content of Kerrygold is slightly higher than comparable butters which contributes to the creamy, melt in your mouth taste and golden color. A quick nutritional comparison finds Kerrygold butter slightly less in salt and slightly higher in fat content. The remaining nutritional comparisons do not differ. A non salt version of Kerrygold butter is also available for those who prefer to bake with unsalted butter or are watching their sodium intake.


Kerrygold Products


I have long been a fan of Kerrygold Dubliner cheese and was pleased to see more products offered by this brand in my store. Just as I recommend Kerrygold butter I enthusiastically recommend Kerrygold Dubliner cheese.

This is a white cheese with a wonderful texture that tends toward the hard side, but is mild in flavor with a very slight nutty flavor. Dubliner cheese is a nice twist for your mac n cheese dishes and melts wonderfully for any dish that needs a cheese that melts well. I always include Dubliner on the cheese and cracker appetizer plate and time after time this is the cheese that disappears first.

I am obviously a fan of the Kerrygold line of dairy products and love a product that is grass fed!

  1. Tracey, I love, love, love real butter, thus am delighted to learn of the Kerrygold Irish butter. It sounds so creamy and tasty from your description. It's interesting to note that it comes in an 8 ounce pack instead of 4 sticks as our local grocery store butter brands do. I'm definitely looking forward to trying Kerrygold butter as the taste is the most important thing with me and 'real' butter.

    Thanks so much for telling me about the Kerrygold Irish butter. Perfect time to review it, too, what with St. Patrick's Day coming up. :)

  2. Put me on that real butter fan list too! I only use real butter. I was thinking to myself while reading your review that a softer butter than my current brand would be better for baking. I'm pretty sure our lame grocery store doesn't carry Kerrygold, which means I would need to order it online. Thanks for the review, recommendation and online links!

  3. Great review Tracey, I use nothing but real butter. This is certainly a must try for me. I'll look for this in our grocery store and hope that I can find it. Your review makes my mouth water for that creamy buttery taste.

  4. I recently learned of Kerrygold butter - when a friend brought some to a camping trip/cookout at The Shack. Previously, I didn't really care if it was butter or margarine. But I've started buy Kerrygold since that camping trip. Yum!
