This is a great way to spend a little over one hour. You can see a working sheep farm and watch a great demonstration of the dogs that keep the sheep in line
After that they will grab a big woolly sheep and shear the wool off into one big blanket
They will explain a little about all those sheep you see dotting every hill in Ireland. Go !

This was super fun, very smooth. We were not there for long but owner did a great job really bringing you into the world of sheep with both history and current events. The dogs were soo good and looked so happy!

The Sheep Farm show was interesting. The sheep can hear commands from the handler up to a mile away. The sheep shearing was also interesting

On a spur of the moment we decided to add this stop on our trip. Glad we did. We were able to pet some of the sheep, the baby ones were especially cute. We also watched a sheep herding demonstration. The hillside and surrounding area is absolutely beautiful, and we learned lots about sheep. While we were in the bleachers watching the herding there were a lot of little flies or gnats or something. I don't know if this was unusual. It was tolerable but a bit annoying.

My husband and I just returned from Ireland on a Rick Steves tour and this was one of our stops. It was so enjoyable, beautiful and entertaining. In addition to the magnificent sheepherding dogs we also say a sheep shearing demonstration. This is a family run operation - please put this on your itinerary while you are in Ireland - you will not be disappointed!
