Feed the lambs, watched the sheep shearing, too wet for the turf cutting, but the view is spectacular and Tom is a great host. Highly recommend for a real taste of Ireland.

Tom's sheep farm is a must do experience. We got to see the sheepdog demonstration with Roy, shearing sheep, and bottle feeding some little ones. This is a must do if you are nearby. Well worth the trip!
