Achill Oysters is a fifth generation business harvesting award-winning rock oysters from the vibrant waters surrounding Achill Island. We bring delicious, healthy oysters to your plate, fresh from the pure Atlantic waters off Achill Island, County Mayo. We’re a small, family-run business with a long fishing heritage & a deep-running passion for working the seas, here on the west coast of Ireland.
Whether farmed by us, or by the selected artisan shellfish producers we work with from all along the Wild Atlantic Way, we ensure that every oyster you buy is traditionally grown, sustainably farmed, and meets an exceptional quality of taste.As a result, you can truly taste the sea in every mouthful. Achill Oysters process, pack and export oysters from its own farm as well as some of the best farms in Ireland.
Achill Oysters have set a target to replace polystyrene packaging with more sustainable wooden boxes. At present, 30% of orders being boxed are wooden. "
Achill Oysters recycle dead shells by using them for road maintenance. Excess dead shells are collected from foreshore around their trestles, removed from oyster bags during grading and stored safely prior to spread on bog access roads to increase hardness and improve draining making access safer.
Water consumption is minimised on site by removing potable water use on site for the cleaning of oysters.
