About Us


“Purveyor Of The Finest Fresh Purified Kerry Shellfish Since 1994”



lenbeigh Shellfish is a family run business specialising in the supply of fresh purified shellfish to wholesale, retail and catering market.


We are located in Glenbeigh between Cromane and Rossbeigh on the scenic Ring of Kerry and Wild Atlantic Way, on the south West coast of Ireland.


Established in 1994 by Noel and Patricia Riordan, Glenbeigh Shellfish provides only the freshest quality purified shellfish products to our customers from the crystal clear Atlantic waters.


We draw our shellfish from Cromane in Castlemaine Harbour – one of the richest and purest shellfish grounds in Europe and the source of the famous Cromane Mussels. We also source our rope mussels and oysters from west Cork.


In our custom built premises we select, grade and purify our shellfish strictly in accordance with current EU regulations under the control of the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (SFAI) and Sea Fishery Protection Authority (SFPA). EU Approval No. IEKY0004EC.


On receipt of a consignment, our dedicated staff ensure our shellfish are purified to the highest health standards. Click here to view our purification process.


Our locally sourced top quality product range includes Cromane Mussels, Pacific (Gigas) & Native Flat Oysters, Local Wild Cockles & Periwinkles.


If you are a hotel, restaurant or seafood retailer we can supply you with the freshest local purified shellfish your customers will not forget.
