Fresh Oysters, Clear waters and
Join us on our farm tour and see first-hand the life cycle of an oyster. As part of the tour you will enjoy the taste of oysters fresh from the Atlantic Sea.
Our tour is a one hour guided tour by
our oyster farmer Jimmy
Jimmy will share his years of experience at oyster farming and explain what is involved in getting the oyster from these shores to a plate in restaurants worldwide
By the end of the tour, you will have visited an oyster farm, learnt about the different oyster farming methods. You will have an understanding of how our oysters are grown from seed to Jumbo size and what is involved in getting them restaurant ready. You will also have received a demonstration of how to shuck (open) an oyster and best of all get to taste an oyster fresh out of the water. A taste of sweetness with a hint of peat gives the oyster a unique iodised taste that best describes the experience of eating a ‘Gallagher’s Special Oyster’!
Throughout the tour you will have the chance to ask any questions and by the end you will be an expert on all things oysters!
Pre booking essential, as our bay is tidal and we can only offer tour when the tide is out
The tour will involve a gentle 300m walk on the beach to the farm
