Starting from Dublin, the first stop is the Caherconnell Stone Fort, in Kilfenora, County Clare. Dating from the 10th century, this fort was a stronghold in the famous Burren region of County Clare. The Burren is an extraordinary landscape of pave limestone rock, home to fossils, caves and extraordinary array of wildlife and plantlife.
Caherconnell is one of the best preserved ringforts in the country and its secrets are still being mined by archaeologists. It dates from a period when Gaelic tribes were under constant attack from Vikings and later from Anglo-Norman invaders. Relics show its inhabitants - the O'Loghlen clann - were wealthy with several precious metals being worked within the fortress.
Sheep farming has a long tradition in Ireland and on this tour, visitors will get to see first hand the special relationship between a sheep farmer and his trusty sheep dog, when a local farmer skillfully directs and drives a flock of sheep around the field with the help of his faithful companion.
