Reviewed 3 November 2016

We visited Ireland in September/October, 2016 and spent a day in Kerry where we went to the demonstration on what is very much native to Ireland - Sheep Herding. This mountain farm (nearto Killarney National Park) is family owned for well over 200 years. That in itself is something to reflect on for endurance and remaining in one spot over centuries. The dog/sheep show was lots of fun to watch and quite interesting. Really had a lovely time here and would recommend it. The day we went it poured but somehow or other it didn't matter. We still had a great time.

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.

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.

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.

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!
