Sligo Oyster Experience has launched a new seafood experience called the Sligo Oyster Farm Tour.
The new experience involves a 15-minute coastal walk with Sligo Oyster Experience owner Aisling Kelly Hunter, a guided tour of the Coney Island working oyster farm in Sligo bay, an oyster shucking demonstration and a tasting of Sligo oysters.
"An Opportunity To Appreciate Sligo"
Kelly Hunter stated, "The tour really gives people an opportunity to appreciate Sligo. The Sligo Oyster Farm Tour adds an exciting 'hands-on' element. People really get to see how the oysters are grown, the impact the weather has on the farm and the hard work involved from the beginning of the process to the final product. I feel like the appreciation of the tasting experience that follows is heightened greatly by this element."
The Sligo Oyster Farm Tour takes place Wednesdays at 11am and 2pm, and runs for 90 minutes.
Advanced booking via www.sligooysterexperience.ie is required, and at least 24 hours advance notice is necessary for large groups.
