Killary Sheep Farm reviews
Okay, so we went with low expectations. Our group walked away signing the praises of the shepherd, the farm, and the experience. That dog was good too! more »
Very interesting and entertaining! Tom was very nice and informative, answering all of our questions thoroughly and with pleasure. The sheepdog demonstration was really cool and then we were able to..... more »
Tom is phenomenal and a great guy and his command of the dogs is outstanding. If you’ve never seen a working dog in action, this is a fantastic experience. It was very interesting to hear about the dogs tendencies and how Tom adjusts the training for each animal. Tom has insightful local knowledge too.
Fantastic experience and the highlight of our day. The farm is in such a beautiful location, and we got to watch a sheep herding demonstration, help shear a sheep, and bottle feed and hold lambs. A really unique experience, and great if you'd like to learn a bit about sheep farming and have a fun hands-on activity with sheep. Highly recommend!
