Wat je gaat doen
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.

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.
