Macroom Oatmeal is a traditional stone-ground Irish oatmeal produced in Macroom, County Cork, Ireland, at Walton's Mill, the last surviving stone mill in Ireland. It was taken aboard Slow Food's Ark of Taste in 2011, as of 2019 one of twelve Irish foods selected for the ark.
The mill has been operated continuously by the same family since the 1700s. Donal Creedon, great-great-great-great-grandson of founder Richard Walton, now operates the mill. Michelin star-winning chef Myrtle Allen developed the Macroom Biscuit recipe which appears on the package.
Macroom oatmeal is stone-ground, then kiln-toasted.
