Kerrygold Ripened Firm Cheese Review

Last week on the blog I reviewed the Costco Artagan Puff Pastry with Goat Cheese and the Costco Naked Smoothie Variety Pack.

If you like my reviews for Costco food products, the best thing that you can dfollow me on Instagram or Facebook and tell your friends about my blog Costcuisine, where I review new Costco food products each week! You can also check out my YouTube channel, where I do video reviews!

I’ve heard so many good things about the brand Kerrygold and I’ve been curious to try their cheese so I picked up this Kerrygold Dubliner Ripened Firm Cheese on my last Costco trip.

I paid $8.99 Canadian for the 400 gram block of cheese.

The cheese needs to be kept refrigerated and is manufactured in Ireland. If you’re a fan of red wine I’d pair this with a red wine and some delicious crackers!

A three centimeter cube contains 120 calories, 10 grams of fat, zero grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fibre, zero grams of sugar, eight grams of protein and 230 milligrams of sodium. The ingredients list is short and sweet with milk being the main ingredient. This cheese isn’t low in calories or fat but most cheeses aren’t!

This is a strongly flavored aged cow cheese! The cheese has a sharp aged taste and has different flavors like sweetness, nuttiness and also a hint of parmesan. The texture is quite firm, similar to cheddar cheese. I don’t love strong cheese so I think I’ll skip buying this again and stick to my Kirkland Signature Manchego Cheese which is my favorite.

Cost: 7/10

Convenience: 10/10

Nutrition: 4/10 (Low in carbs and sugar but high in calories and fat).

Taste: 7/10. (I appreciate the complex, strong flavor but I prefer milder cheeses).

  1. We have replaced Parmesan cheese with this Irish Cheese. It is lovely grated on pastas etc and is much more affordable.

  2. Thank you for the review. This is not related to the review but on the mentioned of the Manchego cheese. Good luck finding Kirkland Manchego cheese at Costco. It seems that they have discontinued stocking this cheese. I checked with customer service and they don’t know if they will ever bring this cheese in. It was so reasonably priced at Costco and so expensive everywhere else. Went to Costco Bellingham U.S two weeks ago and they are also not carrying it. Had I known I would have stocked up.

  3. We are from the UK and this cheese is a staple in our fridge. It has so much more flavor than Canadian cheddar cheese. Soo great for the Costco price, especially when it is on sale. I’ve never seen the butter here though.
