Oyster Farm Tour and Tasting

What You'll Do

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.

Your Local Host:

Colin and Cathy

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!

Location Information

The tour takes place at an oyster farm near Conermara, County Galway, on the West Coast of Ireland, set amongst the beautiful scenery of the Wild Atlantic Way.
