DK Connemara Oysters
Food can evoke all our senses -taste, smell, vision, and touch. A tour of the DK Connemara Oyster Farm truly does reach all these senses. Breathe in the fresh Wild Atlantic air at Ballinakill Bay as you watch the farm crew working hard in the water to grow the most perfectly formed oysters.
Shuck your own oyster & take a punt at the weight of an oyster. Discover the effort it takes to create a flawless oyster from seed to your plate. Taste an oyster as part of the tour and if you still have room for some more, we can arrange a sea food lunch at one of the local restaurants. Purchase a dozen oysters for takeaway to enjoy at home.
The tour lasts approximately 1 hour and is suitable for ages 6 & up, with moderate ability. It is perfect for anyone interested in Irish food culture, tradition, seafood or just that loves Connemara and it’s stunning views. We are situated at the foot of the Connemara National Park, in Ballinakill Bay and are 15 minutes’ drive from Kylemore Abbey, 25 minutes from Clifden and 45 minutes from Westport.
