Our tour stopped here to watch the dogs work, and listen to the Kissane family tell of the processes involved with running a full fledged sheep farm. Their son ran the calls for the dogs that day, and showed an amazing level of skill and...More

We stopped here and our kids loved watching the dogs work the sheep. It was an average Irish downpour but we didn’t mind. One of those offbeat things that my children liked best about Ireland (go figure) - for reference they are 8, 12 and...More

This was something we all enjoyed, adults and kid. The farm itself is beautiful, surrounded by hills. It was fun seeing the herding demonstration by one of the dogs while the owner explained what was happening. I thought it would just be a dog herding...More

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

Our hotel called the farm the day before and set up an appointed time for us. The drive from Killarney is itself beautiful and the farm was stunning. The dogs greeted us first and then amused us as they herded the cat (don't worry, they...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.
