In this unique experience you will get an authentic insight into Ireland. You will be immersed into a flock of sheep and learn about an entirely different lifestyle than your own. You will be welcomed onto Sinead's family farm, located in Waterville, Co. Kerry. You will meet Sinead and her father Timothy, along with their dog Rose, who will be the star of the show! You'll see Rose (a hardworking sheepdog) in action, running around and herding up a flock of sheep into a gated corner. Once Rose is done herding sheep, you will be up-close to the herd. Sinead will provide information on the day-to-day life of a shepard. You will gain a lot of knowledge about life on an Irish farm, and Ireland in general. Sinead will catch a few sheep so you can see their true strength and power. You will have some fantastic photo opportunities and possibly the opportunity to hold your own sheep! This experience is fun and suited to everyone. Guests of all ages and abilities are catered for.

Our sheepherding experience is on a private working farm. It’s a magical place to see and experience. It has brilliant views of Waterville Lake and hills. Its 10 minutes drive from Waterville village and halfway on the Ring of Kerry route.
