Great visit and I finally got to cuddle a baby lamb which has always been on my wish list. Tom's sheepdog, Sylvie was the star of the show and really worth the visit. A beautiful location and we enjoyed the chill out to the full.

Wonderful sheep dog demonstration with an informative commentary. Remarkable to watch the dog and hear about the life and training. Then on to bottle feeding the orphan lambs. 10 euros very well spent.

There were 8 of us. Despite the rain, we had so much fun, and the air was so pure and clean. We watched as the sheepdog rounded up the sheep across the mountain as we looked out over Killary Fjord.
