Opened July 10th 2014. The Glen Keen Sheep Farm, Visitor Centre & Café is unique in Ireland, due to its size, location and natural beauty. Glen Keen is one of the largest farms in Irelands agri-tourism offering, over 1,400 acres in size, this single family-owned sheep farm with a commonage footprint that extends to over 5,500 acres is larger than some national parks. Glen Keen is located on the Wild Atlantic Way, 6.2 miles from Louisburgh on the Leenane road (R335); Mayo’s front door to the Delphi Valley, Killary Harbour and the gateway to the Connemara region. The farm is stunning with waterfalls and breathtaking valleys of the Carrowniskey River, which forges, through the centre of the property and is bound by the Sheeffry and Mweelrea mountain ranges on the south side of the property, serving as pillars to the Delphi Valley. The season at Glen Keen has ended & it will re-open March '15. Group bookings taken over the winter season.

  • One of most rewarding, interesting and generally great experiences. George and the owners are precious, and the dogs are marvelous!
  • Great experience, loved the farm, and learning so much about the sheep dogs. Great demonstrations in sheep herding and fun entertainment with a great lunch.
  • Loved the herding demonstration by UK champion Michael Roche. Great teacher and collie handler; you could see the love and dedication between him and his dogs. Catherine and Katrina were so hospitable, the warm scones and cream were my favorite in all of Ireland. Highly recommend!!
  • Absolutely great stop along our way to Galway. I highly recommend you stop and see Holly and Jill (resident dogs) at work.
  • Beautiful and delightful place. The demonstration of working the sheep with the sheep dogs and cutting your fur fuel was fascinating! Cute shop and delicious scones.
