We just happened to find the brochure for Eagles Flying and ended up watching the show with three groups of elementary school children and a few random adults. It was a brilliant show that entertained everyone. Very well worth the time and effort to find it.

We had a fantastic visit. The show was educational and entertaining. The owners love of birds really came through. Everyone was professional but there was a real opportunity to get up close to all the birds. We will now have this on our visitors must do list. Looking forward to our next visit already.

We had a fantastic experience at Eagles Flying. Family members ranging from 7 to 70 all enjoyed the show, which was very interactive, giving loads of time for everyone to meet the birds up close. There are many more animals to meet too for the children. The experience is really made by the staff who are extremely knowledgeable and make... More

A very enjoyable afternoon. Was greeted by the very big pot bellied pig. Two hours of spectacular flights of birds of prey. Would recommend it to anyone. Will definitely be back.

It was incredible seeing these birds of prey (falcons, hawks, eagles, vultures and owls) up close and flying over our heads (within centimetres, so close their wings would touch you) while also learning more about them. The show was very entertaining and if you can, try and get a seat in the front so you might even get a bird... More

What an enjoyable afternoon my husband and I had last Saturday 26 July 2014 when we went to see Eagles Flying in Ballymote, Co. Sligo. We were greeted at the gate by Rosie the pot belly pig. When the owner arrived he told Rosie to go home but she was having none of it and gave the owner plenty of... More

We went there with our two children - 12 and 10 - and we all had a wonderful time. Try to get there 30 minutes before the show times and see the various birds of prey and other animals that they have at the sanctuary. Also - allow some extra time for the show - it took just over an... More

Lovely day out for myself and teenage family. Well worth the money. The only thing missing for me was the opportunity to stay longer with a nice cuppa to enjoy the serenity. It's like a different world - so peaceful. Even the animals, the dog, horses and goats are chilled out. The girls were saying how fortunate we were to... More

Another fantastic visit today to Eagles flying. We really enjoyed the show and learned so much more about these incredible birds and how they live. The scientists and staff are really animated and caring about their animals and birds. It was lovely to see the birds up close, and visit the petting zoo afterwards. Don't miss a chance to go...

This is a wonderful palce to visit so worth the effort of finding. A bit hard to find best go to Ballymote and follow brown signs. Take your camera as plenty of opportunity to take pictures. This is a clean and well kept place all the animals see to be happy and very well kept. The staff are all very... More
