體驗簡介

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
We are a working farm and part of our tour is conducted outside, so please wear suitable clothes and footwear. If its raining heavily we can also deliver the tour indoors in our grading shed.

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.

During the experience you will see how our busy working farm runs, from the oysters growing in the pristine waters of the Wild Atlantic Way, to the filtering system, right through to grading and sampling.

Interesting detailed tour. We didn’t know what to expect booking this except for the fact we would get to eat a few fresh oysters! But after Experiencing it, we couldn’t recommend it higher. Set in such a beautiful location our guide was so knowledgable. It made us feel like we were visiting a vineyard nearly with the amount of care that goes into their oyster farm. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgable and very approachable. It was a fun way to spend an hour or so. At the end of the tour we had a chance to taste and shuck our own. I’d highly recommend to anyone considering it.

Fascinating visit to the oyster farm. So much hard work goes into harvesting the oysters. It was interesting to see the operation behind the scenes. Best & freshest oysters I’ve ever had! The hosts were very warm & welcoming. 10/10 recommend 👍🏻

Very smooth tour, knowing the set-up of an oyster farm and able to learn and open the oyster shell, most importantly to taste the fresh oysters!

A very fun experience, eating oysters after being freshly plucked from the ocean. Very friendly, next time we would bring our own prosecco.

Bought this experience for my partner as a birthday gift. We had a great time, learned more about oysters and oyster farming and also tasted oysters. Location is conveniently close to Connemara. Thanks!
