Had a spectacular morning with John and Caroline. They are very friendly and knowledgeable, making the experience feel safe and enjoyable. We did the private hawk walk and had a great time learning how to recall the birds, hearing about the history of the falconries and walking around a woodland trail. Suitable for everyone, will not disappoint.

This is a total 5* family experience. We went for Dads 83rd birthday present as a family. John is just so knowledgable about his birds. They are in beautiful condition and clearly very well looked after. We learnt so much about the birds. The birds respond to him immediately. You won’t regret booking this outing.

We visited Hawkeye Falconry as part of a package with the Lyrath hotel and i have to say it was one of my favourite experiences i've ever taken part in in Ireland. The package we had included a private Hawk Walk and as someone who loves even watching small birds in the garden, being up close with such incredible hawks and owls was amazing. John was a fantastic host and guide, very passionate and knowledgeable about all of the birds in his care and that passion really comes through. The overall package through the hotel with 2 nights, dinner, a picnic and the private experience was fantastic and i'd highly recommend it to anyone. Even my partner who doesn't always share my interest in birds loved it! The fact that the experience was just the two of us also just topped it off. I'll 100% do the same again and would have no hesitation recommending.

We went to the private falconry experience and all I can say is wow. From the very start John and Caroline are both so friendly and attentive. John is a wealth of knowledge and so great at showing you how to call the birds to your glove. And he gets you the perfect photo opportunities. Would highly recommend this experience. Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish.
