Product Description

Foodies and lovers of mussels take note! The Connemara Mussel Food Festival takes place on the bank holiday weekend in May on the glorious Renvyle Peninsula in north Connemara. This delicious festival celebrates the high quality, local, natural food that is uniquely the Killary mussel.

The celebrations will include Irish traditional music, the mighty Irish ‘Craic’! (Irish word for fun), mussel cooking competitions, walks, talks, theatre and children’s activities. There will also be a country market, local art exhibition and professional and amateur mussel cooking competitions to name just a few of the events that will take place this May bank holiday weekend.

The mussels are farmed in Killary Harbour in Connemara, which produces up to 2000 tonnes of rope mussels each year, providing local employment that gives a sustainable use of the natural marine resource.

There is always something for everyone so please join us at this year’s festival where once again the best that the Renvyle Penninsula and Connemara have to offer will be on display!

Join us on an independent journey of discovery with one of Ireland’s best food festivals.

And don’t forget… it’s all a load of molluscs!!
