Each year, on the last weekend of September, Galway City celebrates the International Oyster & Seafood Festival, the most internationally recognised Irish festival after St Patrick’s Day and the world’s longest running Oyster Festival in the country.

Every September since 1954, the city of Clarenbridge celebrates the king of seafood with a festival of food, entertainment, music, dancing and most of all a festival of fun with the Oyster at its centre.
