West Kerry Sheepdog Demonstrations
Tralee, Co. Kerry
Visit an authentic Irish sheep farm and watch the purebred border collies Sam and Jess herding sheep. West Kerry Sheepdog Demonstrations are held on the beautiful Dingle Peninsula nestled between the Sliabh Mish Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean

West Kerry Sheepdog Demonstrations on the beautiful Dingle Peninsula offers visitors an opportunity to visit an authentic Irish working sheep farm. Watch the sheepdogs herding sheep on the farm, while hearing all about the work they undertake throughout the year on the mountains and hills.
