Clarenbridge Oyster Festival
The Clarenbridge Oyster Festival was established in 1954. Since its inception when 34 people attended the very first festival at Paddy Burke's, Clarinbridge, the festival has gone on to represent all that is good about life, namely Good Company, Good Food, Good Entertainment and Great Craic. Each year the festival draws visitors from all over the world. Over 100,000 native oysters are consumed during this colourful week of gourmet food, good Guinness and great fun. The highlight of the week is the World Oyster Opening Championship, with challengers competing to open 30 oysters in the shortest time.

Kilcolgan Castle - the castle which dates from the 11th Century was rebuilt by the St. George Family in the late 18th Century.

Tullira Castle
Tulira Castle was originally a McHubert Burke Castle of the 15th century, to which the Martyn family added a mansion in the 1870's. Tullira Castle is private property.
