In this experience, you will visit an oyster farm—one of the oldest in the country—and see how oysters have been grown for centuries in the crystal cold waters here. Oysters have been farmed in Ballinakill Bay, Connemara since 1893. Originally, the oysters were brought by horse and cart in barrels to Clifden, then they traveled 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. Food can stimulate all our senses—taste, smell, vision, and feel. Your visit to the DK Connemara Oyster Farm truly does reach all those 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 guess at its weight, again learning more about the work put in to create flawless oysters. From "Seed to Plate" is the name of our Tour so of course, you'll finish with a taste of a beautiful fresh oyster.
Other things to note

The farm is one of the oldest oyster farms in Ireland dating back to 1893.
Oysters take their taste from the bay they are grown in, giving them a unique flavor to their region. Our farm is situated in Ballinkill Bay surrounded by the Connemara Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean.
We are Seafood Ambassadors for Taste the Atlantic and are part of The Wild Atlantic Way
The last few years have been spent restoring the farm and, with the help of hard-working staff, we have successfully reignited the magical taste of Connemara Oysters from Ballinkill Bay.

This experience is great because you don’t just a learn about oysters.. you do it in a beautiful place in the most relaxed atmosphere! David was very open about his oyster farming endeavour and Paul was a wonderful guide along the whole experience. Shucking oysters might not be as easy as you think, but it’s definitely worth it!

Paul nous a fait visiter l’endroit, il a répondu à toutes nos questions et était super sympa ! Petite déception : la marée était haute et nous a empêché d’observer les cages d’huîtres dans l’eau, ce qui était quand même une partie importante de la visite. Malgré cela, on a appris plein de choses et les huîtres de la dégustation étaient délicieuses.
