What you can expect

Slurp oysters at the source with a private tour and tasting by Flaggy Shore Oysters, a family-owned company. Led by a marine biologist, this tour includes a lesson in how oysters are grown and harvested, plus a demonstration on how to shuck them properly. After touring the facility, taste Flaggy Shore Oysters alongside a glass of wine. Flexible start times can be customised according to your timetable.

Gerry together with his daughter Ciara run their family owned seafood and oyster trading company. A marine biologist by training, Gerry has worked in the seafood industry for many decades and is passionate about showing travellers how to grow and recognise high quality oysters, their primary seafood product. Gerry and his family are from New Quay, a rural village located on the south shore of Galway Bay in Ireland. It is located at the foothills of the Burren, a world renowned Geopark site with truly unique flora and fauna. This area is known for its clean grade A waters that have produced distinctive and delicious oysters and shellfish for centuries. The pristine water with nutrients fed by underground streams to the sea from the Burren provides nutrients that make these Flaggy shore oysters truly special.
