I had heard for years about sheep dogs and the job they do but seeing it in person was a once in a lifetime experience, esp. in Ireland! We also got a chance to watch they sheer sheep and they allowed time at the end for petting. Sometimes if they have babies, you can feed them!

Sheep herding demonstration excellent. Certainly worth a stop. Dogs are amazing and engaging. Location and drive up is great. They sell a lanolin creams and soap are lovely. Everyone on our tour enjoyed the dogs and the sheep. Owner happy to answer questions

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.
