We arrived just in time to feed these hungry lambs. Sometimes you just have to roll up the sleeves and get stuck in!
Have you ever held a baby lamb? Try a new experience with Dingle Guide and visit a sheep farm that has been in the same family for generations and hold an adorable lamb. You might also get to see the farm sheep dogs (border collies) enthusiastically rounding up some sheep.
On this farm you can visit some early medieval stone houses (circa 6th century). These stone houses, or clocháns, are known as Beehive Huts because they are similar in shape to an old-fashioned wooden beehive. These unique Beehive Huts were built without mortar and are National Monuments in the care of the Irish state. They are like the huts on Skellig Michael where there was a Christian monastery from the 6th – 12th century.
Stop for a while to enjoy the stunning views view across to the Skellig and Blasket Islands. The larger of the two islands is Skellig Michael, named after Michael the Archangel by the early Christian monks.
Today, Skellig Michael has gained new notoriety because of the filming of the Star Wars movie “The Return of the Jedi” on the island.
