Seatrails; The Strandhill Shellfish Experience

The Strandhill Shellfish Experience- Ireland's First Take-away
Join us on one of the best experiences listed in the Sligo Food Trail and explore one of the best coastal walks in Sligo. Try something different while exploring the Strandhill area. Meet us in the village and we will guide you on one of the most incredible coastal walks in Sligo. You will be surrounded by huge, high, golden dunes and will find pretty wild flowers growing on winding paths dotted with colourful orchids and wild herbs. 
Your archaeologist and expert guide, Auriel will tell you about the local history, folklore and archaeology of your surroundings. Take in the breath-taking mountain views while you make your way to an ancient feasting site across an expansive strand. Shell middens are places where man in ancient times feasted on shellfish by the shore and dumped the shells after.
You will be enthralled by the unusual sight in the distance of smoke pluming from a hot pot on the rocks. Upon arrival at an an ancient midden site, you will be greeted by local expert chef of Tra Ban Restaurant and offered a delicious bowl of freshly cooked mussels done in a creamy, garlic sauce, accompanied by fresh, crusty bread.
