  • One of the best days we had in Ireland was visiting a number of sites in The Burren. The stone fort at Caherconnell is fascinating to walk around in and the short video and literature handed out were both very informative. The best part though was the sheepdog demonstration. It took about 40 minutes and we LOVED it. The guide put his two sheepdogs through their paces herding a small group of sheep through fences and gates before explaining how the commands and whistles worked with great detail. He answered many questions and let the dogs show off their world-class skills. He then explained a lot about the different breeds of sheep and we just got to hang out with the guide, the sheep, lambs, and dogs for another 10-15 minutes after. Highly, highly recommend this demonstration in addition to visiting the stonefort. Call or check ahead for times. There were only two sheepdog demos per day when we were here: 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
  • Cool lots of different things to see, maybe a little over priced. Would still recommend. The sheep dog demo was hard to see as a full tour bus showed up and we got pushed out of the way. Would also still recommend
  • 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.
  • It was a cool show but nothing amazing. I probably wouldn't recommend it unless you're out of things to do.
  • Very well presented and set up.. sheepdog demonstration is brilliantly done!! The cafe is neat and tidy and food is lovely!
