Ireland OYSTER festivals

My best friend and I are planning a trip to Ireland, and we are both oyster fans. We'd like to time our visit to catch an oyster festival in fall. The reviews I've seen say that the Galway festival is overpriced and underwhelming. It appears Carlingford and Clarenbridge host good, smaller festivals of their own. Has anyone been to more than one of these festivals to compare? For 2 Colorado girls making a festival stopover, what would be the best oyster fest experience? Thanks!

Connemara Oyster Festival starts on the 20th so this weekend, this is a local for locals festival and its 1st year so we will see how it goes. Galway lost touch with being a local for the locals festival so long ago I can't remember.

Clarinbridge is still a local event http://www.clarenbridge.com/ watch this space. Dates are set events and tickets are still in the pipeline.

Tony, I remember watching a series a few years ago with Monty Halls staying on the west coast, I think Connemara. In one episode he was at the local festival & it looked interesting but not a hope that I can remember where it was.
