Wat je gaat doen

An enthralling, interactive look into the world of oysters

Dive in to an informative oyster experience where humour dictates the script.

To begin, you’ll discover the inner workings of a coastal oyster warehouse. You’ll learn the local history and be wowed by the science of how tides provide the ideal water for oysters. Then, you’ll explore our aquarium that features some of the fascinating local sea creatures.

Finally, master the art of oyster shucking and gather round communal rustic tables to eat your fill of Flaggy Shore oysters along with a suitably paired glass of wine.

As a marine biologist I have worked in all aspects of the oyster world for many years—breeding, growing, marketing, opening, and eating. I now run a business with my daughter Ciara and we can’t wait to share our experience with you. We’ll do our best to make your visit informal, informative, and entertaining.

A great experience, interesting to learn about how oysters grow, learn to shuck oysters and then eat as many as you like. Would highly recommend it.

I never write reviews but felt I needed to vouch for this experience—a must do! The experience was amazing and well worth the cost. We felt extremely welcome and comfortable the whole experience, and learned a ton. Nothing bad to say about this trip-highly recommend to both oyster lovers and those who’ve never tried!

I cannot say enough positive things about this experience. Gerry was kind and patient. My boyfriend & I felt that we got the fullest experience & then some. We were comfortable and ate plenty. He had a variety of sauces so we could personalize oysters to our tasting. We are waiting to go back and try this again. Highest recommendations!!!

The Shuck Off experience was fantastic! Gerry is super personable and funny, and the experience itself is very well thought out, from background on the area, explanation of the animal life in the bay, how oysters grow, and a tour of the facility itself. And then, of course, there are the oysters - Gerry did a great job showing us how to shuck, and you *really* can eat as many oysters as you want. There are also tons of great sauces and other condiments laid out in front of you to experiment with. Overall a wonderful, unique experience that I will be remembering for a while - thanks Gerry!

Our experience meeting up with Gerry was everything that I had hoped for, and more! It is well worth doing if you think you would be even remotely interested! The experience, at Flaggy Shore Oysters, on Galway Bay, was a beautiful and picturesque setting for experiencing one of the less-frequented areas of Ireland and the incredible beauty of the coastline. We rented a car for the day and drove from Galway out to Gerry's place. To begin, we discussed the particular history and ecology of the area and how these factors contribute to the marine life there. We then learned more about some of the types of ocean life that Gerry keeps at his warehouse, including some neat older lobsters, starfish, sea urchins, and sea anenomes! Finally, we got to see how the oysters are prepared and stored until they are ready to ship out and be eaten. We then learned how to shuck an oyster and were allowed to eat to our heart's content! I cannot say enough good things about our time there. Gerry is a charming teacher and host and he could not have been more generous with his time and resources. He welcomed us when arrived earlier than anticipated, and while we were shucking oysters, he would frequently refill out bowls when it seemed we were running low. We met people from other parts of the world and had the chance to chat with them while partaking in our mutual love of oysters. I would recommend this experience in a heartbeat to anyone who 1) enjoys oysters, 2) enjoys learning about how our seafood is grown and harvested, 3) enjoys spending time near beautiful, rugged shoreline, and/or 4) just wants to spend a few hours with a person who is passionate about what they do.

This was most definitely the highlight of our Ireland trip. We had no idea we would enjoy it as much as we did. First time for all of our group of 4 at shucking oysters and eating them. It’s an experience we will never forget. Just do it, you won’t regret.
