We have gone to Falconry Ireland twice and both times were amazing! The photos we captured were brilliant and it's a great hands on experience with these magnificent birds of prey

Terrible pun but great experience . Real hands on . Such a thrill to have the hawks fly to your hand . Staff have great knowledge of all the birds including the great selection of owls ( hence the pun ) . Perfect gift for someone . I was on my own but did not distract from fab time . So go find the place and enjoy .

Bought groupon voucher for my dad as a present, he drove down early on a Thursday morning from Dundalk as you have to be there by 10am, only told after his arrival that due to bad weather ( the weather was raining all week but no phone call to tell him , to save journey) that the birds couldn't be taken out, he's wasnt offered tea or refreshment, just told to come back another day, so he booked it for 18th of July. On the 18th he was unable to attend due to a back injury he got on the 17th, i emailed Faclonry Ireland to give them notice and to rebook but was told it couldn't be done!! I must say their customer service needs alot of improving

Loved the experience of being so close to the birds in a safe environment controlled by extremely knowledgeable people

We spent a brilliant 2 hours here. The guys knowledge of the birds and the passion they show is second to none. The introduction familiarizes you with what you will see, and then you go up to the field where the hawks fly and land on your hand. A brilliant experience and it really is stunning to see the birds perform. Vinny the hawk is a character and a half!

It may not be suitable for very young children as part of the tour includes a bird eating a (dead) chick.

There are also displays by other birds (falcons and owls) and there are plenty of photo opportunities.

An all round excellent activity, highly recommended.
