Croagh Patrick Seafoods

Croagh Patrick Seafoods is a family oyster farm on the shores of magnificent Clew Bay near Westport, right on the Wild Atlantic Way and beside the Great Western Greenway. Owner Padraig Gannon personally leads a fascinating shore-based tour of the oyster beds followed by an oyster shucking demonstration and tutored tasting.

The 90-minute tour gives an unparalleled insight into the world of oyster farming, from tiny seed to mature shellfish in these pristine waters. Visitors learn how the flavours here are unique as the growing oyster picks up the character and flavour of this stunningly beautiful bay. Padraig’s stories bring to life the history of Clew Bay and the story of his own family and community.

Croagh Patrick Seafoods is proud to be part of BIM’s Taste the Atlantic Trail celebrating Irish seafood. The Gannons supply sea fresh oysters and other shellfish to the retail and wholesale trade.
