This was the highlight of our ring of Kerry tour. This is a must see! It rained on our tour the whole day, but this made it all better.

I have seen films of sheep-herding border collies, but never before witnessed them live in action. Brendan Ferris is a fantastic dog trainer and his dogs are so obedient and intelligent they seem like "Super-dogs!" In addition to educating the audience about various breeds of...More

First off, bring cash! They do not accept credit cards and I didn't see an ATM anywhere in site. Now for the fun part. They go over different types of sheep and frankly I didn't know there were so many varieties. Plenty of pictures opportunities....More

Brilliant experience! Brendan shows off his various sheep, plus his extremely well trained sheep dogs (border collies). He treats the dogs and the sheep with such respect and has the storytelling and comedic timing that makes it so enjoyable. Well worth the 5 Euro.
