Omey Island Cleggan
Omey Island (Irish: Iomaidh) is a tidal island situated near Claddaghduff on the western edge of Connemara in County Galway, Ireland. From the mainland the island is inconspicuous and almost hidden. One can reach the island at low tide as a large sand bar is exposed, however at high tide the island is only accessible by boat. It is surrounded by the crystal clear and unpolluted waters of the Atlantic Ocean. It harbours a high biodiversity of seaweeds and other marine life. The seaweeds can grow here without being disturbed until they are harvested by hand in a sustainable way. We have exclusive access through one of our suppliers who hand harvest the seaweeds we use in our products. Sustainable harvesting means that our seaweeds are collected in patches spread over a large area in order for the seaweeds to regenerate and flourish. Small areas are only harvested every 3 years in order to maintain sustainability and biodiversity.
