What a great experience! We’ve been enjoying castles, forts & abbeys. We loved getting out in the country & seeing their super smart border collies racing around the sheep on command & sending them up & down the rocky hillside. They & their handlers make...More

We were able to join one of the scheduled Border Collie Sheep Herding demonstrations and it was amazing. The dogs are extremely well trained, answering the calls and whistle of their human handler. The dogs seem to really enjoy their duties. The talk that is...More

Watching the dogs herd the sheep was fun to watch and very impressive. It was cool watching the sheep get sheared, after that there was a store where you could buy hand creme, lip balm and more. Definitely will be worth your while.

We drive by sheep in the fields, we see sweaters in the shops and assume we know what happens in between. You will be surprised to realize the training required, the weather considerations, the economic ramifications and skill required. Throughout the rest of our tour...More

Kissane sheep farm was a perfect stop! When you pull into the family run farm you are met by the border collies- anywhere from 3 to 9 at a time. While waiting for the demonstration these dogs are friendly and sociable. The demonstration takes place...More

We loved this tour! Family operated working sheep farm. We learned how they care for the sheep, got to watch them shear a sheep and pet baby sheep. We learned about the history of the wool industry and then were treated to a demonstration of...More

Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area (Killarney National Park; or en route between Kenmare and Killarney). Educational, entertaining, scenic, and a great value. Check their website for the schedule if you're making plans.

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
