Owner description: The traditional application of falconry has been to take a Bird of Prey, train it and then attempt to catch wild quarry with it. Although our guided walks with hawks experience, is not a hunting expedition, it is a leisurely stroll through the majestic settings of Killarney with falconer and hawk/or team of hawks and shows the ability of trained birds and their relationship with their human partners.The participants will have hands on experience with the hawks,you will be able to handle and fly the hawk yourselves under instruction from killarney falconry's falconers. We finish up with an owl encounter where you can handle & hold an owl. Private Hawk Walk Duration 1hr approx One Participant 70euro Two Participants 100euro Three Participants 130euro Family Package (2adults/2kidsU14)120euro Extra Participants/Spectators €30each, Times between 10am to 3.30pm Daily Weather permitting activity.

Reviewed August 9, 2012

This was an out of this world experience. A fantastic way to experience Falconry. The guys were engaging and entertaining along with being educational. What an incredible feeling as you watch the hawk swoop down and land on your arm. Wow! It was easy to schedule, it was just our group, and that one hour was the highlight of the entire 2 week trip for the 11 year old in our family. I would make it a "must-do".

“A fantastic experience”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Fun, awe-inspiring, definitely off the beaten path of tourist activities in Killarney, I can't recommend the Hawk-Walk with Killarney falconry enough. The guys are friendly, passionate, and clearly enjoy taking folks out and showing off their birds. There's no feeling quite like holding a hawk on your arm and looking him(her) right in the eye, or watching one glide down from the top of a tree right on to your hand!
For 45euro a head, we got a couple hours with two handlers and two hawks. Good for all ages. Would absolutely do it again if we had the chance.
