About
Enjoy an oyster tour and tasting with your host David on his oyster farm. This is a perfect experience for anyone looking to connect with local culture over food. In 2014, David acquired and started restoring the oyster farm at Ballinakill Bay. With the help of his hard working staff, they have successfully reignited the magical taste of Connemara oysters which have been grown in the area since 1893. Ireland and the Wild Atlantic Way are renowned for its delicious seafood delights and the oysters from David’s farm lives up to this reputation! Their oysters are a pacific oyster (Crassostrea Gigas) and are available all year round. Smell the fresh wild Atlantic air and hear the soothing sounds of the sea. See the farm crew working hard in the water to grow the most perfect, meaty oysters. Touch the oysters when you shuck your own and finish your tour with the taste of a beautiful fresh oyster.

What to expect
This is a unique opportunity to visit a local farm and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Meet David at his oyster farm which is one of the oldest in Ireland, dating back to 1893. The oyster farm is a working sea farm and the experience is very rural and informative, giving you an introduction to the world of oysters! The oysters thrive in the pristine waters of Ballinakill Bay, which is surrounded by the Connemara hills and the Connemara National Park, making for some spectacular views! During this oyster tour and tasting, you will learn about the history of the farm, life cycle of the oyster from seed to plate and how they take the taste from the region they are grown in. Then walk on the seashore to the oyster beds (during spring tides only), pick oyster’s fresh from the waters of Ballinakill Bay, learn how to shuck them, before you enjoy them.
