Cape Clear Island
from Walking in Ireland
Harper of Cleire
Goats has raised goats on Cape Clear Island for more than 20
years. He offers courses in goat husbandry that can last anywhere from a few
hours (for tourists with an interest in goats) to several months (for future
goat farmers such as the young women from Oregon and Germany who were
apprentices during our visit).
The Cleire Goats farm also has a small shop that sells goat ice cream,
cottage cheese, and milk chocolate.The farm is a good uphill climb from the
village, so you'll probably be ready for an ice cream by the time you get there.
