There is no better way to celebrate the new Oyster season. At Lunch, at dinner and even at breakfast (stomach permitting). To be served with a good glass of wine and champagne, or a pint of beer.
And many events to surround.

Oysters and gastronomy at the center of the Galway Oyster Festival. It is still a gastronomic event. Gourmet meetings, tastings and tastings in Galway’s best restaurants, workshops and activities await you.
And, again, fashion shows, tournaments and the Oyster Olympics; and, while we’re at it, a good election for… Miss Oyster. On the other hand, every festival worthy of respect has its Miss !!

Music will also be the protagonist, with Irish artists ready to perform. And here, also, the wonderful voice of Dolores O’Riordan would have been just fine.
