Au programme

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.

A great tour - really interesting to see the working farm. Paul was our guide and he told us we were his first tour - thought he was excellent, had lots of great info, was very friendly, good fun! He showed us loads around the farm amd answered all our questions. Loved getting to shuck our own oysters, and yep, they were tasty. Also, big thanks for indulging my request to sing happy birthday to my husband - he thoroughly enjoyed it (well, he was mortified, I enjoyed it immensely). Highly recommend the tour and Paul as a guide!

Catriona was a super host and was very informative and knew exactly what she was talking about. She could answer all of our questions and made the whole experience quite enjoyable. Plus, the oysters tasted beautiful and so so fresh! Would definitely recommend this tour if you are passing through Letterfrack.

I’m so glad we visited the Oyster Farm. We learned so much about the oysters farming, it’s challenges and history, its place in region’s native life. Triona was a very knowledgeable and kind guide, kept us in awe and eventually achieved something impossible: my daughter not only tried, but liked oysters! This trip added a magical flavour of the sea to our Connemara trip :)

David was a fantastic guide, very knowledgable and a great storyteller! The landscape surrounding the oyster farm are amazing as well and worth a trip on its own. David was also nice enough to accommodate us bringing a dog. Of course we also got to enjoy plenty of delicious oysters 😉
