Shuck Off Flaggy Shore Oysters: The oysters come from three small bays on the coast of Co. Clare, where the surrounding karst landscape of The Burren allows the abundant rainfall trickle down through the rocks, creating underground channels of freshwater down in the bay. These channels bring all of the nutrients of the Burren with them into the bay, and into our oysters. This is what we feel give them their unique flavour.
