What: The CLIFF Oyster Festival launch at Cliff Townhouse

Where: Cliff Townhouse, Stephen's Green, Dublin 2 

The 7th annual Cliff Oyster Festival was launched in fine style in the elegant Cliff Townhouse on Dublin's Stephens Green. Guests enjoyed some of the best oysters and seafood in the country, teamed with great Spanish wines. Aoibhín Garrihy was MC for the night, and chatted to the oyster farmers and producers present about why their oysters were the best!

The festival itself is running throughout the month of September across all the Cliff venues. This weekend sees Jazz and Oysters Sunday at Dublin's Cliff Townhouse and you'll find all the information on this and other events here.
