Sheepdog Demonstrations

Fun, interactive sheepdog demonstrations are available for group bookings. County Wicklow is famous for its sheep, so it is no surprise that sheepdog herding is a large part of country life here.


You are able to witness the skill and intelligence of the border collies in action as they follow the command of a whistle in varied pitches to herd the sheep around the fields of Russborough.

Our host, renowned sheepdog handler Michael Crowe, will keep you entertained while giving you a snapshot of real Irish rural life. Russborough sheepdog demos are ideal for international guests, especially those from a farming background, as well as local families on a fun day out.
