I thought this would be a highlight of the trip. I was there with my wife and 14 year old son. My family really loves animals, and we often seek out animal-related experiences, including private special behind-the-scenes animal encounters. The Killarney Falconry Hawk Walk experience was expensive, but well within the range of what we often pay for private animal... More

My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon in Ireland and the "Hawk-Walk" was among our favorite stops. Such a truly unique and awesome experience. Our guide did a great job explaining information about Arizona, the hawk on our tour. Definitely recommend for anyone living or visiting the Killarney area.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. We met Geoffrey at a site near Killarney and began a one hour session with he and Bolt, his falcon. The walk was on a road running along a field and on the other side trees. Geoffrey did a good job explaining the training of falcons, how they hunt in the... More

This was by far one of my best memories of our week in Ireland. We met Geoffrey at the hawk walk site and had a wonderful hour with Bolt and Geoffrey. He is very personable and a wealth of knowledge. My husband and I were both able to handle Bolt while we talked with Geoffrey. Being raptor fans ourselves, we... More

I have been wanting to do this for years. I thought handling the bird would be hard, but it was simply a matter of putting the glove on and my arm out for a perch (with some food treat in my fingers). And no the bird did not want to eat my ears or face. The guide clearly loves his... More

My friends and I decided to give this a try after reading all of the great reviews on TripAdvisor, and the experience certainly lived up to our high expectations! During the hour long hawk walk we not only got to have the hawk, Texas, land on our gloves and capture plenty of amazing photos with the bird, but we learned... More

Geoffrey was our guide and it was one of our favourite things we've done in Ireland! It was a relaxed walk through beautiful scenery and watching these birds gracefully move above us. I was on cloud 9. It was great. Geoffrey have us so much info about them and afterwards let us say hello to Daisy the barn owl. She... More

Gregory, our guide, created the most magical experience of our lives! We walked in the Killarney Forest and as we learned about falcons this majestic bird flew with us. Every time it landed on my glove I was amazed, it NEVER got old or boring!!! Every time it took my breath away... That combined with our guide made this the... More
