I was there in Sept. 2016 - I guess I am slow in the review - but it was fantastic. First, it is set in a spectacular landscape - along the Ring of Kerry (if you can absolutely do this drive). Second, the sheep 'round...More

A friend of ours loves sheep and her boyfriend surprised her with a visit at this farm. It's nice and interesting to see how a family business is running in the west of Ireland. It's 7 Euro the entrance, plus all the others you will...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

While driving the Ring of Kerry, we came across the Kissane working farm advertising sheep dog demonstrations. Couldn't pass that up! The farm owners gave the demo and it was great. They would verbally send the dogs hundreds of yards out to gather, group the...More
