We completely loved our visit to Away To Me! My husband and I had a fantastic time meeting the dogs, learning about herding, and watching Nell the border collie in action - all for an unbeatable price. You can't meet nicer people than FJ and Meghan. FJ is a very engaging teacher and happily answered all of my many questions about sheep herding and farming in Ireland. An additional bonus for us was getting to hold a couple of tiny puppies and bottle feeding a pair of young sheep! And we can't forget to mention that Malin Beg and its surroundings are absolutely gorgeous. The demonstration exceeded our expectations and we would be excited to come again next time we're in the area.

This truly was a great find and would 100% recommend to anyone travelling to this part of Donegal ! Meghan and FJ are such genuine people and you can tell they really love what they do. You get meet all the dogs and learn about their personalities and their family history. You then get shown Nell in action with the sheep and learn all about how you train a sheepdog , how they learn and also about farming in this truly unique part of the world. The views are spectacular as well ! You then get to see some of the trainee dogs in action which is really interesting after seeing Nell the master at work ! We saw Lucy and Sweep while we there. FJ answered all our questions and you can tell from him that this truly is his passion. A wonderful way to pass an hour or so in this beautiful part of the country. A must do for tourists and locals alike !

We had an absolutely fantastic time. We got to meet Francis and his dogs and hear all about how these working dogs are trained. Nell, Coco and Sweep were amazing to watch. Such a wonderful and unique opportunity, well worth a visit if in the Glencolumbkille area.

Learned so much and saw amazing dogs do amazing work with sheep. The passion on the shepards shine through in this fantastic demonstration they really love their dogs. Couldn't recommend it enough. They kept the interest of 6 children for over an hour which was amazing in itself.

Went for a couple of sessions with FJ and have to say, one of the most enjoyable things I've ever done or watched. It's a no-brainer if you're a dog lover, but even if you're not, it's fascinating and riveting to get to watch the dogs working the sheep in real-life, not just on TV. FJ showed me Nell working first and it was just stunning to see her concentration and responsiveness. It was maybe even more fun to watch the younger dogs who were still in training. They weren't up to Nell's standard yet, so it was very interesting to watch them getting things wrong at times and making decisions and improving. Having said all that, it was FJ's passion and lovely easy-going manner, and his explanations and answering all my silly questions, that really brings the whole experience together. I spent 2 evenings, standing at the edge of Ireland, Atlantic Ocean rolling in beyond his fields, gorgeous weather, and I really can't think of a better way to spend an hour or so when you're in the area. And only a couple of hundred yards from the famous Silver Strand beach, all adds up to the highlight of anyone's holiday. I will be going back everytime I'm nearby.

Great visit. We learned about how
the dogs are trained from beginning. These dogs are really clever and love what they do. FJ has lots of knowledge about the local area too.

This is the very best sheepdog demonstration, I have ever seen. All explanations from Francis John and Meghan Cunningham about their entire training of sheepdogs - three years in total - was so interesting and was explained with great enthusiasm.
Frances John demonstrated three Border Collies at different stages of their training and pointed out, where improvements are still needed.
It was just amazing, how his fully trained sheepdog NELL listened to his master's voice. FJ asked me to give directions to Nell, but she didn't listen to me at all.

My husband and I want to thank you both sincerely for this wonderful experience during our staycation in Donegal.

We had the most wonderful afternoon with FJ and his fantastic Border Collie sheep dogs! FJ was so informative and knowledgeable on both the local area and his shepherding skills!! It was amazing to see the bond between FJ and his dogs! We can't thank you enough and would recommend it to everyone! The drive up is also spectacular!

My wife and I really enjoyed this experience. We were quite lucky, as we had a one on one experience with FJ and Megan. We have visited a previous sheepdog experience at another venue, but this was the best. FJ’s relationship with his dogs is amazing, and they are very so good at what they do. Nell was exceptional! Sky was learning and really impressive. But....you just cannot beat the view. What a magnificent place! The combination of FJ and Megan’s welcoming and friendly demeanour, with amazing dogs, and a one of a kind view...let’s just say this is WELL worth the drive! I cannot say enough about how great this experience was for us. Fantastic hosts, and wonderful dogs. A must see when driving the Donegal coast.

We had a wonderful time with FJ & Meghan. FJ gives loads of great information about the area and what makes border collies so special. He’s a knowledgeable man and clearly has a lot of passion for what he does, and that’s just nice to be around. My husband and I loved learning from him. My 3-year-old daughter was less interested in the learning and more interested in petting the dogs. It especially meant a lot to me how patient they both were with her. When she would ask a question, they answered her directly in a way she could understand. Not all adults have that ability with small kids and usually just leave me to answer her. Also, we thought it was fun to see 3 different sheepdogs at 3 different stages in their training so that we could get a better sense of what it takes to train them. Plus, as a bonus, the location is stunningly beautiful and right near other stunningly beautiful things, so it really makes for a great day of fun!
