The inaugural Connemara Oyster Festival takes place at Keogh's, Ballyconneely, July 20th-22nd, set against the beautiful, wild backdrop of Ireland's Atlantic coast. A part of the country steeped in tradition and with some of the world's most delicious and abundant seafood.

A festival designed to open up the region's amazing seafood to everyone, the weekend will include a host of different events including live music, dancing, chef demos, tastings, shoreline foraging with Galway Chef JP McMahon, an East coast v West coast cookery competition, oyster shucking and talks from local foodies. 

On Sunday, Mike will be talking about the need to educate, enthuse and inform a whole new generation on the benefits and delights of eating shellfish and how the 'sea to plate' journey of traceability can help connect producer to consumer.
