Irish Oysters

Irish oysters have been consumed in Ireland for 4000 years but their cultivation goes back to the 13th century. They are renowned for their exceptional taste and quality, sourced from the pristine waters along Ireland’s rugged coastline. The unique marine environment around the island contributes to their distinct flavor and texture.
