Moysata Oysters was founded by the Galvin family who have been farming in West Clare, Ireland for generations. With over 20 years of oyster production experience under his belt, founder Michael Galvin handed over the reins to son Thomas Galvin in 2012. With Thomas at the helm, the family partnership has continued to grow, with father Michael still playing an active role and with brother Bernard Galvin as farm manager.
Moyasta farm is located in the Grade A certified waters of Poulnasherry Bay on the west coast of the beautiful County Clare. These sheltered waters form part of the Shannon Estuary, where the river Shannon, Irelands longest river meets the Atlantic Ocean. Poulnasherry Bay is uniquely suited to the cultivation of high quality oysters, the entire Estuary is designated as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) – an important Irish and European wildlife conservation area.
