Gents, are not forgotten!! Wolf and West Menswear in Oranmore will sponsor this year’s Best Dressed gent. The prize is a fantastic €250 voucher to be used in store at Wolf and West, Galway’s newest menswear store, located in our neighbouring village of Oranmore.

Our judges have a keen eye for style, and will mingle with the crowd to find the Best Dressed of the day. Don your dresses and dickie-bows and step out in style this October, for the glamorous Clarenbridge Oyster Festival.

Aside from the incredible fashion and entertainment, the Clarenbridge Oyster Festival is a true celebration of the native Oyster. The Festival marks the beginning of the new Oyster season, respecting the tradition of generations of expertise in harvesting oysters from the surrounding shallow seas. Protected in the bay from the Atlantic, the oysters in Clarenbridge flourish in the perfect mixture of fresh and seawater. Perfect conditions combined with a wealth of skill and knowledge from the community, mean that the taste of the Clarenbridge Oyster is unrivalled. Dress up and dance the night away, but most of all savour the famous Clarenbridge Oyster at this year’s Festival.
