About Mileeven

Mileeven was established in 1988 by Eilis Gough from a hobby of beekeeping. The name Mileeven comes from the Irish for honey being "Mil" and delightful being "aoibhinn".

Now run by Eilis and her daughter Sarah, Mileeven is one of the leading honey suppliers in Ireland. Pure Irish Honey from our own hives was our first product and still remains an integral part of our product offering today which also includes Manuka Honey, Organic Honey, Pure Honey as well as floral specific honeys like Acacia, Lavender, Orange Blossom and Honeycomb as well as the Sarah's Wonderful Honey range. 

The awards from Great Taste, Irish Food Awards and Gulfood that we have received over the years confirm our quality and innovation.
