LEARN THE BODHRAN

HELP THE SHEEPDOGS

Action packed, hands-on programme on a busy working farm. Come and gather the sheep, feed the pigs and cut the turf…

We’ll teach you a dance and have a session on the bodhráns. Everyone can make their own soda bread or cut a few sods of turf for the fire.

This is genuinely a superb way for groups to immerse themselves in Irish culture. Everyone says it is a highlight of their time in Ireland.

The programme includes:

Bodhrán Session

Each student plays a traditional bodhrán and learns to accompany the different rhythms of traditional Irish music including jigs, polkas and reels.

Irish Dancing

We can teach any group The Siege of Ennis – it is a fabulous class bonding activity and even the most reticent of classes are laughing before long.

Team Building Challenges

Activities designed to encourage people to stretch their capabilities and to embrace teamwork.

Sheep Dog Demonstration

See how our dogs control the sheep and how they help the farmer with his work./p>

Meet the Farm Animals

cattle, hens, geese, pigs, Connemara ponies, goats and donkeys.

Make Soda Bread

Everyone makes their own brown bread and we eat it later with butter and jam and drinks.
