The International Sheep Dog Trial is the pinnacle in the sheep dog trialing calendar and its venue rotates around the four nations year on year, with Ireland being lucky enough to be the host nation for 2023 and this year being the first time Wicklow has hosted.  The event will take place at Threecastles, Blessington, Co.Wicklow.

The trials will see dogs and their handlers from Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England compete with some 190 sheepdogs taking part. This event has everything for a great family day out.  There will be lots to do with Live Music, Demonstrations, a Funfair, Exhibitors, Traders, a Dog Show plus lots more. Organisers will also have a huge selection of Food & Drinks to choose from, with a covered area to sit, relax and enjoy. There will be an abundance of live music including Nathan Carter, Michael English, Liam O’Connor and The Maguire’s. The event will be well attended, it is supported by the Department of Agriculture Food & Marine and our title sponsor is FBD Insurance.
