Having never seen a herding demo this was a great stop. Kate the collie and her handler put on a wonderful show. The sheep shearing was interesting as well, done in less than 5 minutes. Soaps and other products also available for purchase. Free parking...More

Stopped at this recommended sheep farm as my wife is in love with these animals. The herding demo and sheering demo are interesting and we loved seeing newborn lambs. The experience does feel a bit rushed and commercialized as the big bus tours stop here....More

Our entire experience at this family owned sheep farm was excellent. Watching the border collies respond to their trainer and herd sheep was very impressive and entertaining. A ewe had just given birth to triplets moments before we arrived, and we got to see her...More

During my 3rd trip to Ireland, I was traveling with my daughter and three grandchildren ages 1, 2 and 8. So we attempted to find things that would interest the little ones. Kissane Sheep Farm is a working farm and the demonstration was very informative....More
