Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The whole experience was amazing and interesting. The man who owns it is friendly, informative and a helluva of dog trainer.

Our tour bus stopped here while we traveled the Ring of Kerry. It was a wonderful demonstration and very informative. Lasts about 30 minutes. Definitely worth the stop.

Informative and informal. Nice to learn about the differences between sheeps. After the general introduction, the shepherd dogs show starts. Amazing how dogs can be trained to support the sheeps in their ways.

We saw the sheep dog demonstration on May 11 when our group tour stopped here. It was wonderful - so entertaining and impressive! I'm so happy we got to experience it. It was raining slightly, but there was a covered area we could stand under. Definitely include a stop here if you are in the area.

So sad... Just traveled from the US...we were here in 2019 and this was unbelievable. Such a great experience. Today they were closed. I'm not sure if this is permanent. 😢

My husband and I were able to see this wonderful demonstration of sheep herding while travelling with our tour group with Gate 1 Travel as we travelled throughout Ireland.

Today, as part of our "Ring of Kerry" day long adventure, we stopped to see Brendan Ferris and his two trained dogs with a herding demonstration.
This was very exciting to see Brendan command his dogs and their reactions.

We loved the sheep dog show. There is a little uphill walk to get to the mini stadium. It rained a bit during the show, but the stadium had an overhang so we wouldn't get wet. Brendan was very passionate and knowledgeable and both the dogs were adorable! We learned a little bit about each breed of sheep and were able to ask questions. Look for the Jacob Sheep with double horns! A must see stop on the Ring of Kerry. Tip: bring binoculars to see a little better and an umbrella or rain coat if you want to stand right next to the fence.

We've been here twice and enjoyed it both times. Brendan is a very good caretaker of his dogs and sheep and you learn so much from him. Well worth the price of admission.

I was there this past May, did the Ring of Kerry bus tour and we stopped at Brendan Ferris Sheepdog Demonstration. I was really looking forward to see dogs in action and this was the BEST STOP EVER!!! What a show this man puts on with these amazing dogs. He shares his training of the dogs, different calls and the dogs were the star.

I could have stayed there all day watching those amazing dogs, the sheep and enjoying Brendan's wonderful sense of humor. It is an ABSOLUTE MUST.
