Ardrahan cheese: calling Grumpy Grapefruit or Irish cheese lovers

... or anyone else who has come across Ardrahan cheese from Ireland here in Switzerland:

http://www.ardrahancheese.ie/index.htm

I've got a scrummy-looking recipe which I'd like to try out but I've got absolutely no idea of what cheese can be substituted to get the correct or similar taste

Re: Ardrahan cheese: calling Grumpy Grapefruit or Irish cheese lovers

I don't have any in stock but basically any washed rind soft smelly cheese should do. The nearest I have is Stinking Bishop but Ardrahan is much firmer. Not sure off the top of my head what local cheeses would match, look for something honey coloured and smelly and it should do.

The honey coloured I can manage, but I'm stumped by the smelly bit: smell like what??? Goat's cheese? ripe Camembert? smoked cheese? stinky Gruyère?

O.K. I've done some Google homework and come up with this as a possible alternative (the Stinking Bishop put me on the right track). Thanks for the help
