If you love seafood and the little animals that inhabit Irish waters, we invite you to discover a sadly little-known Irish specialty: the Irish mussel. As fine as Irish oysters, the Irish mussel benefits from a quite exceptional quality, which will delight your palate!
Ireland has an ecosystem that is ideal for the breeding of the blue mussel, Mytilus edulis. Its rich waters enjoy a fantastic natural balance of minerals and organic elements that allow the mussel to benefit from special attention during its rearing.
Recently, mussel farming in Ireland has been regulated by the BIM (Irish Sea Bureau), a body responsible for monitoring the farming processes of Irish marine products. This monitoring allows us to obtain a quality mussel that corresponds to the main charters and standards currently in force.
Renowned for its nutritional qualities and fine flavour, the Irish Mussel is traditionally served with French fries or potatoes, topped with a good pint of Guinness. Even if the dish looks simple, it is a real delight!
By the way, if you wish to discover this type of dish, you should know that a good Irish pub located in a village on the Irish coast will be able to offer you this dish on its menu! All you have to do is try it… and enjoy!
