Great experience in stunning setting. It was a totally relaxed environment and a joy to just be at the farm in that place with my daughter. She and I both loved it.

What a gorgeous activity to do, especially on a lovely dry, sunny day. Joe was friendly and informative. His dogs, lambs and goats were so cute. The view from Joe's home is worth the trip! 😍 A stunning part of Ireland. Peaceful and unspoilt beauty all around. My kids and the adults really enjoyed the experience. Would highly recommend.
Our visit to Joyce country Sheepdogs was a memorable experience and a highlight for all ages on our trip to Ireland. Joe was friendly, full of fascinating facts about Ireland and the history of the area and sheep farming and culture. His dogs were remarkable at the shepherding demonstration, while Joe explained every nuance and behavior. The children in our group - one, four and seven years old, were entertained by the shepherding action, and interacting with the animals. This trip was a real gem. We called in advance to let Joe know we were heading to him on a rainy day.
