At Croí we pride ourselves on supporting a local community, we believe in Kerry produce and we know that some of it stands shoulder to shoulder with the rest of the world and some stands a shoulder above. Croí is Gaelic for Heart and in old Irish it means the spirit or the essence, we want to get to the spirit and the essence of our land, thanks for reading :)
