Not knowing what to expect, we were delighted with this short display of the dogs shepherding the sheep. Wonderful training by Brendan (Ferris), who made it fun as well. He had all the answers to questions put to him and well worth the €5 fee....More

This was the highlight of our ring of Kerry tour. This is a must see! It rained on our tour the whole day, but this made it all better.

our tour guide guaranteed this would be a great stop and he was right. The sheep farmer worked his dogs with just an almost silent call or a whistle. They respond seperatly to different whistles . A very neat thing to see. We talked to...More

Well worth a stop. Brendan puts on a great show/demonstration and his sheep dogs are incredible. This is definitely on the large tour bus circuit - so we were a bit apprehensive as a party of four on our own. But there's plenty of room...More
