We at Realt na Mara Shellfish are 4th generation fishermen here in Cromane. Our family run business specialises in the supplying fresh purified Irish Mussels and Oysters to customers both home and abroad. We are proud to still be part of the aquaculture industry and keeping the family tradition going in Cromane.

Our shellfish is grown locally in the clear waters of Castlemaine Harbour in unspoiled Atlantic waters. The local sea conditions are ideal for growing mussels and oysters. We have strict quality control when it comes to harvesting and purifying our shellfish. This provides high quality, fresh and local produce to our customers.

Join us on the scenic Ring of Kerry to see first-hand how we grow our oysters from seed to adult. You will learn about the techniques used to grow our famous Cromane oysters, how they are grown and how we get them to their desired shape. Try your hand at shucking your own oyster with our tips and tricks to get it right each time. Finally taste the Wild Atlantic Way by sampling our delicious Irish oysters au natural.

Along with learning all there is to know about the husbandry of an oyster farm, travellers will also learn about the lifecycle and harvesting of our native blue mussel. After the farm we take the tour into our shellfish purification facility, fully approved in accordance with Regulation (EC) 882/2004, put in place by the Sea Fisheries Protection Agency (SFPA). Travellers will learn about how our shellfish go through a monitored filtering activity to ensure they are safe and ready for local and European markets.
