Exploring Mid Ulster in Northern Ireland

Meet My Guest: Jamese McCloy

Jamese McCloy is a fourth-generation shepherd who wants to show people sheep farming and particularly his highly trained team of working sheepdogs. He invites visitors to his farm set deep on the beautiful, little-known landscape of the Sperrin Mountains.

At Glenshane County Farm you can expect a bucolic Irish farm experience. Watch the sheepdogs at work, try your hand at shearing, cuddle a baby lamb, and even stay a while at the 5-stay Glenshane Country House.
