Didn't know oyster season was a thing? Me neither until about five minutes ago.
Apparently September is officially the start of the oyster season, and word on the internet is that you should only eat oysters during months with an 'r' in them. That means the next few months are the perfect time for you to get shucking, and here are a few great Dublin spots to get started at.
The Blue Oyster Fish Shack, Parliament Street
This cute pop up is a great spot for oysters and a pint of plain.
Salty Buoy Food Truck (various locations)
The transportable brain child of Niall Sabongi, a Dublin seafood veteran.

Ideal if you like your oysters with a side of specially crafted cocktails.
SOLE, South William Street
No better spot for oysters with a side of people watching.
Cliff Townhouse, Stephen's Green
A gorge spot for treating yourself, overlooking Stephen's Green.
