Seafood Day

Seafood & Farming Traditions Day


Killary Harbour is a dramatic deep fjord that penetrates 12km inland from the Atlantic and into which the lakes and rivers of the Delphi valley drain. It produces what is arguably Europe’s best selection of fresh shellfish within surrounding farm lands that have remained unchanged for generations. 

This day begins with pick up by powerboat at Delphi pier and visiting mussel and oyster farms along the fjord, explaining and demonstrating what is involved, and sampling fresh oysters with a glass of Guinness or white wine. Then follows a scenic walk to a traditional farm to watch a demonstration of sheep shearing, working sheep dogs and turf cutting. On returning to the boat, travel along the fjord to a scenic spot to enjoy a special Delphi picnic lunch before returning to Delphi pier about 4pm. Please contact the office for further details.

Important note: Our “Seafood & Farming Traditions Day” experience is restricted to group bookings over 6/8 persons.
