A good oyster could just change your life – it certainly changed ours!
Dungarvan Shellfish Ltd (a sister company of Harty Oysters) was founded in 1985 in the scenic area of Dungarvan Bay in County Waterford. We were the very first company to grow oysters in our county. Jim Harty was a pioneer of Irish oysters as he was one of the first people in the country to recognise the potential for growing oysters in the Celtic Sea.
Our Gigas Oysters soon became an Irish ‘speciale’ for the French market, as the nutrient rich waters of the Atlantic and Irish seas combined with the local rivers & streams surrounding Dungarvan Bay create a sweet and meaty unique ‘speciale’ oyster.
The Harty family aim to give their customers the highest standard of oyster and we consider our oysters to be one of Ireland’s top luxury food products available today.
Harty Oysters produce over 600 tonnes of ‘speciale’ triploid Gigas oysters in 4 sizes:- no: zero (150g +), no: 1 (110g-150g), no: 2 (85g-110g) and no3 (65g-85g).
