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!
Brilliant. Well thought out centre. Working archaeological site with interpretative video and guide book. Farm and sheepdog are exciting to watch and learn. Highly recommend dropping in.
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.
Border Collie (sheepdog) was excellent demonstration. Very informative n funny. Archeological dig by 2 University of Galway professors n 6 US students taking place @ present. Caherconnell Fort n audio visual very well worthwhile.
