Our Oysters

Our Oysters

Oysters have been farmed in Ballinakill Bay, Connemara since 1893. It is one of the oldest oyster farms in the country.

Originally the oysters were brought by horse and cart in barrels to Clifden, then they travelled by rail to Dublin for shipment on the mail boat to England.

Today, oysters from Ballinakill Bay are served in local hotels and restaurants as well as being exported worldwide.

Join us on our farm tour and see how oysters are grown over a three-year period from seed to plate. As part of the tour enjoy the taste of a Connemara Oyster fresh from the waters of Ballinakill Bay.

Our extended tours during Spring tides are special and include a walk on the seashore to the oyster beds.
