Clarinbridge, Co. Galway

Clarinbridge is a small village, approximately 15 minutes drive south of Galway, Ireland in the Diocese of Kilmacduagh. It is on the mouth of the Clarin River at the end of Dunbulcaun Bay, which is the easternmost part of Galway Bay. It is famous for its yearly oyster festival that is held in the second week of September.

Clarinbridge was home to the Redington family who owned much of the land and property in the village. The church is located on the primary road passing through the village, the N18. There are many other church ruins in the parish, most notably the one in Killeely. The town is also known for its great hurling tradition. Clarinbridge Oyster Festival[edit source | edit]

The Oyster Festival at Clarinbridge has taken place every September since 1954, with guests from all over the world returning annually to celebrate the new oyster season. The bivalves at the centre of the festivities are fresh from the famed local oyster beds. As well as eating oysters there is entertainment, music and dancing especially, as well as a gala ball, where those attending are entertained by Irish musical acts.
