Atlantic Sheepdogs is located on the Wild Atlantic Way, in Streedagh, a small picturesque townland in North Sligo, nestled between Benbulben Mountain to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. This is the perfect setting to watch these very special dogs, doing exactly what they enjoy to do.
Atlantic Sheepdogs Farrm overlooks Streedagh Beach, a 3km long, beautiful sandy beach. This is an ideal place to go for one of the most scenic walks on the west coast of Ireland. The beach is steeped in history, given that three of the unfortunate Spanish Armada met their demise just offshore in 1588 and one can trek back through time following the rugged and famous de Cuellar trail, part of which cradles Atlantic Sheepdogs Farm.
