A unique experience touring an aqua-farm in stunning County Galway, enjoying a coastal walk along the ruggedly beautiful coastline, and tasting incredible seafood produced locally on the farm as you learn about this new sustainable farming practice.
Explore the wild and rugged Atlantic coastline in Connemara, County Galway during a unique guided tour that focuses on seaweed, aquaculture, and how they can help us grow food sustainably and responsibly.
You’ll set out on a coastal shore walk and foraging tour, to learn about and taste edible seaweeds and sea herbs. Then visit the abalone farm, learning about sustainable aquaculture farming as you see the different sea creatures grown in tanks.
You will have the opportunity to try sea urchin roe, when in season, and to shuck your own abalone. After this, you’ll taste several dishes that have been freshly prepared with sea food grown on the farm, including delicious seaweed salads, sashimi abalone, and cooked abalone, followed by tea or coffee and home-made seaweed cookies.
You are also welcome to bring your own bottle of wine to accompany the food.

Moving to Ireland in 2009, we left the frenetic buzz of big city life behind us, hoping to create a different lifestyle in the countryside. Colin, who is an Irishman, already had the love of the west of Ireland imprinted in his heart, having spent all his childhood summers fishing the many rivers and loughs for its famous wild salmon and trout.
In search of our ‘place’ in this crazy world, we chose the wilds of Connemara on the Wild Atlantic Way to settle and see if it would measure up to our high expectations…and boy does it deliver on that, and much, much more!
This tour takes place on an abalone farm in County Galway, near the beautiful Connemara National Park and set amongst a stunning, rugged coastal landscape.
