Galway Oyster and Seafood Festival at D'Arcy Arms

Galway Oyster and Seafood Festival at D’Arcy Arms

Fresh seafood and ice-cold brews – it’s an unbeatable pairing, and the Irish tend to agree with us! If you’re also partial to a pint of stout and love everything oceanic, head down to the much loved D’Arcy Arms this weekend for its celebration of the iconic Galway Oyster and Seafood Festival. Originally established in 1954 to celebrate Galway’s rich annual oyster harvest, the festival has since grown and is now one of the largest internationally recognised Irish events. We may not be able to flock to Galway’s shores to enjoy the epicurean delights ourselves, but this is the next best thing.
