“Fantastic day out for all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2008

We are very lucky to live near Eagles Flying in Ballymote, Co. Sligo and I can recommend it to people of all ages.

The birds fly very low over your head, its fascinating. They are such graceful, elegant creatures.
Lothar and his family will tell you about the birds in an interesting and amusing way.
You will get to see all kinds of birds inflight, including hawks, kestrels, owls and a turkey vulture. You get to see them at very close quarters and can ask any questions you have.

We've been several times and its great to see the owls as babies and then go back a few months later and see them fly.

Not only are there birds to see there are many other animals, including: donkeys, goats, sheep, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets and even a pig! You can feed and pet most of the animals.

If you are anywhere near Sligo on your trip try and get to Eagles flying, its a great day out and well worth the money.

I have taken lots of photos at the centre, most of them are on flickr, I'll put some on here as well.

“The Eagles (and Hawks, Owls, & falcons) really do fly- right over your head!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2008

This is a wonderful, informative, and fun experience. The highlight is a one hour program consisting of everything you could want to know about these beautiful birds, and a free-flying demonstration that has falcons, hawks, owls, and eagles flying right over your head! This is followed by the rare opportunity to touch some of them (most have been hand raised).

Appropriate for children and adults, there is a petting zoo with a donkey, pig, hedge hog, etc.

Free-Flying Demonstrations daily (subject to weather conditions) at 11am & 3pm

open Good Friday to November 7th
10:30am - 12:30pm 2:30 to 4:30
or by appointment (tel. 071 - 9189310
