  • The sheepdog demo was so much fun. It's something different and definitely worth the money. Not just for kids, we were two adults. :) We didn't go to the fort, though.  more »
  • On the way to the cliffs of Mohair, we stopped at Fort zaganiania show Caherconnell sheep by dogs. The Fort itself is a curious and interesting hotel, which features a bar and a shop.

  • €6 seemed really expensive for this. I understand restoration and maintenance costs, but there are so many other amazing things in the immediate area that are the same price, or free, it struck me as a money grab
  • Great area to immerse yourself in Ireland's history and beauty.
  • This is a wonderful experience. Tour the fort and watch the sheepdogs. The gift shop is truly delightful and grab a bite of lunch. Yummy!
  • Well informed visit to the Burren, lovely people and food
  • 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.
