Hill Sheep Farming and Sheepdog Trialling Experience in Galway

Successful sheep farmers need well-trained sheep dogs, and this 90-minute tour will show you how Border Collies are trained to work on a farm. Set in the stunning Connemara countryside, this farm is surrounded by rolling green hills that are backed by the Maumturk Mountains, and just minutes away from Lough Nafooey which boasts a freshwater beach. Depending on the season, you might have the chance to shear some sheep or cuddle with newborn puppies, and this tour is a truly authentic experience of life in western Ireland. Transportation is not provided to the farm to attend this experience; the distance is about an hour away from Galway city.
