    A SHEEPDOG NAMED MOE
    Third generation farmer, Martin Feeney, gave our group of 40 an insightful, educational and entertaining demonstration of his life with Border Collie, Moe. Martin has an easy-going style that imparts and demonstrates information in a sensible and understandable manner. This was a highlight of my tour and I highly recommend it.

    Entertaining and informative
    Visited yesterday and had a wonderful afternoon with Martin and Moe. What a delightful dag. The demonstration was excellent and Martin was very informative and entertaining. Loved every minute and it's now at the top of our list to take friends and family when they visit us. Very highly recommended for all ages.

    Highlight of our Tour
    A dedicated farmer who provides an well organized presentation about his farm, his dogs, and proudly talks about his sheep and sheepdogs. His venue is exceptionally clean, with restrooms and shelter for rainy days. Definitely a class operation!

    Incredible experience
    This was by far our favorite experience while on vacation in Ireland, and being a castle fan, that is saying a lot! Martin and his amazing girl Mo were incredible! Being a dog lover helps, but is definitely not required - Martin and his dogs will leave you in awe no matter! If you get a chance to visit them, be sure to take advantage of the opportunity!

    Amazing Demonstration!
    We had the best time here!! We have a full border collie who is smarter than the other dogs around but NOTHING like his dogs at Atlantic. The owner/trainer is really something exciting to watch. I never imagined anything like it. You will be entertained as well as educated. Everyone, even non dog lovers found this great, really wonderful!! Pam and Russ from TN

    A must in Ireland!
    SUPERB demonstration of sheepdog by Martin and his sidekick K at Atlantic Sheepdogs. Very informative and entertaining as Martin shared the history of the area to different breeds of sheep. As it is lambing season, 2 newly born lamb made its debut! Highly recommended.

    Uplifting visit!
    Just back from a trip to Ireland which included a visit to Atlantic Sheepdogs for a fabulous demonstration by Martin. He has an amazing setup there and Martin is so professional and welcoming. Not only was it an uplifting experience, I learned so much just from that one visit. I would highly recommend a visit!
