High Quality Seafood,
With a Rich History
Oyster fishing has taken place around Tralee Bay for hundreds of years, in various forms and is mentioned in literature in the 1850’s. The current fleet is based out of Fenit Harbour, but most villages and townlands along the shore of the bay, such as The Spa, Kilfenora and Barrow have their own stories and history related to oysters. There are also oyster middens present in the bay area which could possibly date back to the Stone Age.
It’s very possible that St Brendan, who was said to have been born in Fenit, brought some Tralee Bay Oysters with him on his voyage across the Atlantic!
