Sold Out Events

If your selected event is sold out, we will notify you immediately. You will have the option of cancelling your order or selecting a different event. If this newly selected event differs in price, an adjustment (up/down) to the original charge will be applied.


We accept cancellations up to Sunday, 30th July 2017. An administration fee of €10 will be charged. All cancellations must be received in writing with the original confirmation email attached. Unfortunately no refunds may be arranged for cancellations received after this time.


VAT is charged at the prevailing rate on products deemed by the Revenue Commissioners to attract VAT.

Due to fluctuating international market conditions including currency exchange rates, prices are subject to amendment without prior notice. However, Galway Oyster Festival makes every effort to keep price adjustments to a minimum, and to advise customers as soon as possible of any significant increases.
