This was a "must see" for us on our recent visit to Ireland. Fun and educational, and fascinating to watch Brendan and his dogs work together as a team. We watched the show a couple of times and Brendan was kind enough to answer our many questions. He is engaging and gracious. His skill as a dog trainer is so... More

Tour driver said this would be the best 5 Euro we'd spend in Ireland and he was right. Worthwhile, fascinating demo.

We stopped here at the recommendation of our tour driver on our way around the Ring of Kerry. I'm so glad we did! It's just around 30 minutes long, and only 5 euro to get in. Brendan Ferris is extremely informative and engaging. He was willing to answer everyone's questions, and was gracious enough to pause to allow someone in... More

Brandon gave a wonderful sheep herding demonstration. He and his three dogs are amazing to watch. After seeing so many sheep, it was nice to learn more. In addition to the sheep herding show, Brandon shows you many kinds of sheep and talks about their uses.

We were amazed at how well the dogs were trained to herd the sheep. The show was very entertaining and definitely worth the stop.

Sheep herder Brendan Ferris is an amazing, talented sheep herder. He and his dogs could move the herd of sheep anywhere on the mountainside with the slightest whistle and gestures. The ease at which he and his dogs moved and controlled the sheep was truly amazing to watch. This became one of my fondest memories of my last trip to... More

We were blown away by the sheepdog demonstration. The dogs are impecably trained and can't wait for their turn to guide the sheep. Brendan Ferris is funny and extremely informative. I only wish my dogs listened 1/100th as much as his dogs do. We definitely recommend stopping here if you are in the area.

We almost missed this attraction but luckily our driver insisted we stop. The owner/operator of the sheep farm gave a great talk with live sheep on the types of sheep raised in Ireland. Next he had his 2 border collies demonstrate their prowess. Impressive to say the least. Not too long, about 30-45 minutes and only 5 Euros. Its in... More
