Join us on a fascinating farm tour and see how oysters are grown over a three-year period from seed to plate, then enjoy the taste of Connemara Oysters fresh from the waters of Ballinakill Bay.
Food evokes all our senses – taste, smell, vision and feel, and a tour of the Connemara Oyster farm truly excites all our senses. Smell the fresh, wild Atlantic air. See the farm crew working hard in the water to grow the most perfectly formed oysters.
Shuck your own oyster and take a punt at their weight, again learning more about the work required to create flawless specimens. And, of course, finish your tour with a taste of a beautiful fresh oyster!
The tour lasts approximately one hour, and takes you through the whole process for oyster production, from how the farm brings the oysters from seeds, right through to your plate. It is perfect for anyone interested in Irish culture, tradition, seafood, or just loves Connemara!
As we are situated in a coastal location with stunning views on the Wild Atlantic Way, you can also enjoy taking home the fruits of the farm, with the opportunity to purchase some fresh oysters to bring home with them.
