“Beautiful spot to see sheep herding”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2016 via mobile

This was an interesting spot to stop. The border collies are very good at sheep herding and the farm is located in a gorgeous setting. We also watched the sheep being sheared, which gave us a sense of how much work goes into making wool. If you're not used to farm life, however, you may be put off by how they use a hook to plunge the sheep into the antibacterial dip.

“Very scenic and entertaining watching the dogs herd the sheep”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2016

The landscape is scenic, even if the sheep farm wasn't there. Add the entertainment of the dogs herding the sheep makes it an amazing experience. Also saw the worker sheer a sheep and learned why the sheep have colors on their backs. Good little stop and learned a little about one of Ireland's large industries.

“Wonderful demonstration ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2016 via mobile

We visited The sheep farm with a touring Company group of 46. This attraction is great for small children and adults alike. We saw border collies herding sheep and afterwords saw a sheep sheering demonstration both of which were fascinating. Price of admission for adults was seven euros and four children five euros. Cost is very reasonable and the demonstration lasts about an hour. Very well done attraction with great photo opportunities.

“Feels like home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2016

Seeing the herding and shearing of sheep brought back wonderful childhood memories. The staff was friendly and welcoming! How many places can you go and adopt a sheep? What a great way of keeping people engaged in the farm!

“Kissane sheep farm”

Had a great time watching the border collies round up the sheep. We then had and razor shearing of a sheep. Learned lots about life as a sheep farmer. The hosts Noel, John and Jonathan were all great.
