Dog Kennels / Boarding With a Difference

Your dog or puppy can have their own holiday while you're on yours.Hollybarn Dog and Puppy Training are excited to be able to offer a much more personal approach to kennels and boarding for your dog or puppy.

While you are away enjoying your holiday or short break. Instead of your dog or puppy being boarded in a traditional kennel or boarding environment, they will stay with leading dog trainer, behaviourist and qualified Veterinary Nurse Emma Whelan in her own home in Claremorris in rural Co Mayo and have a holiday all of their own.

We pride ourselves on providing the best care possible for your dog so we sleep your dog where you sleep it, feed when you feed, feed what you feed and walk when you walk maintaining your dogs normal routine.

This means the home boarding experience is much leass stressful than traditional kennelling.
Your dog gets all the care and attention during their holiday stay with us that they would at home from you. They become part of our family during their stay.

One acre play and exercise area for boarding dogs.


Don't worry if you have a multi-dog household and would like boarding for them all as we will take more than one dog from one household so you don't have to break up the family.


We are only 25 minutes away from Knock airport. So if your are flying out we are perfectly located for Knock Airport dog kennels / in home boarding.


We recommend that your dog should be fully vaccinated to stay with us.
