Shepherds Farm Walk- Dingle Peninsula
We will walk around the farm for about 2 hours. This is a hill farm so involves a bit of hill walking. We will see our sheep and feed them if winter time (they live solely on grass in the summer time), You will most likely see our Chickens if they are not busy doing other chicken stuff. You will also see some wonderful scenery on the walk. We will visit the Peat Bog where we used to cut turf for the fire and hear about the diversity of plants that grow on the bog. You will hear the larks serenading us on our walk. A rare enough experience in these days. We have a number of Archaeological sites on the farm which we also visit. We will see our Fairy Fort and our Standing stone. If you like this experience but the scheduled time and date does not suit, please message me and we might be able to schedule a time that does. Other things to note Walk is on a hill sheep farm so we don't allow dogs. The walk is on average mountain land sometimes wet, good walking boots/shoes and raingear needed. Be prepared to walk up to 2 hours. Enjoy !

Guided walk Carrauntoohil
Carrauntoohil is Ireland's highest mountain, with 1,038 metres of height (3,405 feet). It's a strenuous walk ideal for a person with a good fitness level, hill walking experience & hiking boots. ITINERARY: Distance of 13 km. Total ascent 950 metres. Duration 6+ hours. I will meet with my hiking group at 10:00 at Lisleibane - Carrauntoohil Trail Head & Car Park. Carrauntoohil Coffee Hut at the car park (Summer) for coffee. After checking gear and supplies we will hit the trail with an easy pace. On our way, perhaps we meet sheep, we watch the birds soar, we smell the gorse flower (May) as we walk into Hag’s Glen for one hour before our first rest at the base of the Hag’s Tooth. We then prepare for the summit and the actual climb, with short scrambles and steep climb we will head via O’Shea's Gully. Setting off, as we rise higher and higher we are greeted with better and better views, we experience more pleasure than pain. When we finally arrive at the summit we are awestruck by the views, the best in Ireland in a clear day. We can see the entire County of Kerry, the Black Valley, Dingle Peninsula, West Cork, even the Atlantic Ocean. Priceless!! With our well deserved rest, refreshed and elated it's time to descend taking our time, and being extra careful we work our way down via Devil’s Ladder, or Zig-Zag path; or Heaven's Gate depending on weather conditions and safety.

Alpaca Trekking Through A Magical Forest
Alpacas take to trekking quite easily. They walk in a line, one behind the other on a head collar and lead rope. Our guided treks start at the alpacas' barn and ascend into the forest. Each trek lasts about 1.5 hours. The walk itself is at a very leisurely pace, and is not at all strenuous. PLEASE NOTE: MINIMUM AGE 12 YEARS, no baby carriers (and all guests must speak English). When you arrive on site, the alpacas will be grazing, and we will call them in using their yellow food bucket! Simon and I will introduce you to the alpacas whist getting them ready with head collars and leads. We will have a brief health & safety chat, as well as give you some idea of what to expect and some pointers so you can interact with your alpaca. We will also introduce you to all of their individual quirks and personalities. Alpacas are not able to carry packs or people, so they will accompany us as we walk the forest trail. We try not to let them stop to nibble grass for long periods. Half-way around the walk, we release the alpacas in an enclosed area, so we can feed them treats, and you can get very close and intimate with them. They will love you when we give you the apples and carrots to feed them. There will be plenty of photo opportunities throughout your visit. When we return to the farm, we will finish with a fibre and spinning demonstration.
Scenic Pony Trekking
We offer a unique opportunity to discover some of the most breathtaking scenery in Ireland on horseback. Our spectacular mountain rides have provided riders with some amazing experiences over the years. All our rides are accompanied by me personally. I will guide you and your horse safely along the dazzling mountain scenery and through wide open countryside. With the Boggeragh Mountains as a backdrop, the Blackwater at your feet and the picturesque Horse Capital town of Millstreet only 2 miles away, it is a great experience. From half hour to 3 hours. Other times can be arranged just message us. Our native irish ponies and horses are all very well behaved and well schooled. Some experience is better. Other things to note Some experience with horses is helpful but not essential.
Moonlight hike with local guide
At full moon there are about six nights with potential for sufficient light for trail hiking. Moonlight hike on a mountain trail in the Glenbeigh area. We may need to change to the night before or the night after, depending on weather and clear sky. What to bring: hiking boots/shoes, rain jacket, a drink and snack, torch or flashlight (for emergencies).
Alpacas experience in a lovely farm
You'll jump right into the field, meeting our lovely alpacas and horses. You will know everything about them, about their life and habits. I attended several Alpacas Classes where I get my advanced certificates with the British Alpacas Association and the Alpaca Association of Ireland. You'll have the chance to meet 2 Alpacas Breeds! Huacaya and Suri. It's not easy to see Suri as they are very rare in Ireland!! You can meet them only at our farm nearby Loop Head and Kilkee! You'll feed them directly, and grab one of them, if you feel ready to. You'll have the opportunity to cuddle them, check them and train them too! This experience is completely tailored on you! You'll have the opportunity to meet and greet the chickens, and maybe you'll be lucky enough to pet them too! We'll be back at home, and I'll show you a spinning wheel, that I use with the alpaca wool. You can even have a try :) !! Other things to note We'll see and work with animals. Animals can be unpredictable sometimes, they can run, jump, or even spit. They can kick too. Normally it doesn't happen, but you must know that it's possible. We'll work mostly outside

Guided hike Mount Brandon
Brandon summit at 952m (3,123 ft) is a moderate-strenuous hill walk suitable for hikers with some experience. I will meet with my hiking group at Dingle Tourist Information Centre, The Quay, Dingle, County Kerry, V92 HHTO at 10:00 am. After I have made sure they have the right footwear and warm-comfortable clothing, I will discuss our day with them. From here we have to drive 10 more minutes to the start point at Ballybrack west side of Brandon Mountain. We will start our walk at a leisurely pace and I will make sure that everybody is comfortable and happy. We will stop at regular intervals for people to enjoy the scenery, to take pictures, and have some food & drink. ITINERARY: - Distance of 13 km - Total climbing 1,000 metres - Duration 6 hours The quickest and easiest route takes two hours to reach the summit via the medieval pilgrim path, The Saint's route. The main feature of the walk will be a section of the ridge near the summit, "one of the finest ridge walks in Ireland". We will walk north of the summit for half an hour to a spot with great view over the chain of paternoster lakes and Faha Ridge. After returning to the summit for lunch break we will go down south via the ridge to Brandon Peak, from here, walking contouring around the Feohanagh River valley at a height of 600 metres to meet the pilgrim straight grassy path again and return to the car park.
Creating an Irish Hardwood Ornament
This is a more hands on and fun Experience for guests where you will each sand, seal, wax embellish and finish a turned piece to take home with you. In effect you will be getting a custom made piece turned by a professional but with your own spin on it. Please Note: Due to the complexity and skill required to turn one of my Hanging Ornaments, I will turn the decoration from a wood blank into its final shape in two stages as you watch. I will then show you how to: Fully sand the piece yourself Add colour, your choices! Embellish the grain with gold wax, to make it pop! Apply the overcoat of High Gloss Add the hook eye and ribbon, the colour of which you will choose for yourself! Some of these steps are quite difficult so if at any stage if you cannot complete a step I will help you or do it for you. In the last few years I have become very well known for my Hanging Ornament decorations & they have moved on from the earlier natural grain versions to a mixture of colour and natural grain. You can buy some of my Hanging Ornaments in the shops but it is far more special to be involved in the making of one yourself! There may be an opportunity to view some finished pieces afterwards for a few minutes. Please request a viewing when booking so products can be set up for you.

Other things to note: Please contact the Smokery 24hrs before you are thinking of coming so we can make sure we have stock and aren't knee deep in fish production.
