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.

Easily one of the highlights of our trip to Donegal. Jimmy was such a pleasant gentleman and it was hard not to feed off the energy and passion he has for his job. We got to taste a couple of oyster there and then on the farm and it doesn't get any fresher than that. The quality and size of the oysters are simply outstanding and we knew we had to take some home - only a couple of dozens! Would happily recommend this experience to friends and family if they were to head to Donegal

Jimmy is a lovely host. Personable and interesting. We really enjoyed finding out about oyster farming and learning about how the company began thirty years ago. And the oysters are delicious.
