During my 3rd trip to Ireland, I was traveling with my daughter and three grandchildren ages 1, 2 and 8. So we attempted to find things that would interest the little ones. Kissane Sheep Farm is a working farm and the demonstration was very informative....More

My family visited this attraction while I was attending a business conference at INEC and they loved it! They paid seven euro each to join a large tourbus group of visitors. The hardworking sheepdogs did their thing, while the farmer explained the sad economics of...More

If you have never seen border collies in action, this is a must see stop. This sheep farm is I think one of the larger sheep ranches in Ireland. A family operation, it is obviously a labor of love for the people who work here....More

Absolutely amazing time watching the sheep dogs and the sheep. Would go back again, and loved sharing this experience with my husband our daughter. The sheep shearing demonstration was interesting and we couldn't believe how quickly he worked.

This is the largest sheep ranch in Ireland. It is operated by two brothers and their trusty border collies. Watching the dogs work was a highlight of our trip to Ireland. The owner also sheared a sheep as a demonstration of some of the things...More

We knew we wanted to see a sheep herding and sheep shearing demo and decided to reserve our spot at Kissane Sheep Farm in advance. We were told to call the day before to confirm it. Located along the Ring of Kerry, it is well...More

Friendly family and staff, hard working sheep herding dogs and a show of 20-30min of several dogs doing their round up. Saw similar in New Zealand but this topped everything for proximity visibility of herding. Yes, would go out of our way to visit again....More

Great experience for anyone especially families. Very informative, friendly and knowledgeable farm owner John Kissane readily answers questions. Helps the general population to understand the burden that most modern family farms face without the addition of agribusiness to aid in their survival. Great program to...More
