Dear WRigazio, Many thanks for your wonderful review and we are delighted you got to experience so much bird activity while at Cahernane. Killarney Falconry do a super job and it was great you could join them on a hawk walk too. We have been lucky this month with the weather so far, fingers crossed for the rest of the summer ! We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip to Ireland, Kind regards Emer & all the team.
