  • The booklet that provided a self guided tour of the site was quite informative but the huge numbers painted on the rocks rather spoiled the photos. The film show that comes with admission was also ok ...  more »
  • We skipped the fort but saw the dogs. It was absolutely worth it. They spend about 20-30 minutes explaining the methodology and history of sheep herding and then the demonstration is very entertaining...  more »

  • The only reason it is missing 5 stars is because of the stone fort you can see the fort when walking up to the centre that is enough to see! However this place is not really out of the way and has amazing food for very reasonable prices. But the sheep dog training is not to be missed amazing show and worth the money.
  • We stopped off here on our way back from the caves. The facilities were nice, and the video was very informative. The fort itself is very interesting to anyone who enjoys history. The leaflet also pointed out when excavations would be taking place, and had links to the website where you can see the finds of previous excavations.
  • Cheap and tasty. Nice ambience.
  • Beautiful site. 4 Stars. Man I loved the sheep dog demonstration! 5 Stars for the sheep and the dogs!
  • The sheepdog demo is pretty cool and the guest centre is quaint. You can go out of the way a little bit to walk to the stone fort bit but it isn't very big. Worth a stop if you like dogs and if you're up in the burren, othwerwise, I wouldn't go out of my way.
