What a great tour and story about the family business and how oysters are farmed. I couldn’t stop smiling and feel like I was lucky to have the opportunity to see how it was done. Had the freshest, best tasting oyster I have ever had in my life and now spoiled by perfection. I can’t wait to return and bring friends and family as it was one of the best hours I have had in Donegal.

The tour war a amazing and absolute interesting experience. The oysters taste so good and you will never get more fresh ones! ;) You will love Jimmy, the 80 years "young" oyster farmer who guided the tour.

Incredibly fascinating learning about this family business and how the moon rules their lives. Never have I ever wanted to abandon my 9-5 more and live on the coast growing oysters by coast.

I was really impressed with such dedication and love for the work. Jimmy was wonderful and could spend hours hearing more about the story. It was an incredible experience, I can say it was the best so far, and I will definitely come back.

I 100% recommend this tour, especially if you're a fan of oysters, a lovely family owned business with friendly and really helpful staff, the views were insanely beautiful - especially because we were blessed with such a sunny day- fantastic value for money, and delicious oysters, we'll definitely be making a return trip.
