St Tola Hard Cheese is a goat's cheese made by Siobhán Ní Gháirbhit and her team at Inagh Farmhouse cheese n Co Clare, on the West Atlantic coast of Ireland. It is available in both raw and pasteurized milk versions.

This creamy coloured hard cheese is renowned for its marbled pale cast and a remarkably fine, smooth texture. It is made in several sizes, including a small one (200g), which is perfect for picnics and get-togethers. There is no intense goaty taste or aroma, typically associated with goat milk cheeses. It has a characteristic tangy flavour with notes of smoked ham and honey. This delicious cheese makes a perfect addition to a cheeseboard. Pair it with a manzanilla sherry, dessert wine or port to enhance the flavour.

St Tola Hard Cheese has won many awards including 2-star gold medal at 2010 Great Taste Awards, a gold medal at 2008 and 2009 Great Taste Awards.
