The goal of Adopt a Sheep is to preserve the Irish heritage of mountain sheep, living in the scenic area of Moll's Gap on the Ring of Kerry in southwest Ireland. In doing so, the heritage of a traditional family farm in this Special Area of Conservation is also saved for future generations. In the area of the Ring of Kerry mountain sheep have been in the hills and on the roads for over one hundred years.
Every year thousands of tourists come over to see the beautiful countryside and make photographs of the ewes and little lambs wandering around, enjoying their freedom. The goal of Adopt a Sheep is to preserve the Irish heritage of mountain sheep, living in the mountains in the scenic area of Moll’s Gap on the Ring of Kerry (Ireland). In doing so also the heritage of a traditional family farm in this Special Area of Conservation is saved for future generations.
The Farm is situated on the N71 Road, between Kenmare & Killarney National Park in County Kerry in the Republic of Ireland. The famous panorama of Moll’s Gap is in the middle of the land, overlooking and the farm and its sheep and lambs. We are in a Special Area of Conservation and our main aim is to preserve the Farm and its sheep and baby lambs.
To help the Farm survive we have opened the Farm to visitors since May of 2005 and every-day we welcome many Group Tours and Individuals & Families to come and visit the Farm and see our Sheep Dog Demonstrations & during the summer to also see the Sheep Shearing Demonstration. In the Spring time the visitors will have the opportunity to see the many baby lambs that will be born on the Farm.
Since we are a busy working farm, we only open to the public for demonstration purposes and the times of our demonstrations are published on our Sheep Dog Demonstration Calendar or you can e mail or contact us by phone for details.
