The girls who work here are passionate about the birds and reptiles and very welcoming. We have some terrific photos as a keepsake, definitely worth dropping in, E12 for a family, well worth it. My kids loved it.

I had heard alot about this place and was dying to visit. Nothing prepared me for it - €3 a head which was an absolute bargain for what we got to experience. I got to see amazing owls and falcons and we even had a chance to hold one. I went for the biggest owl in the world called oscar, the staff there were so professional and lovely. They have such a bond with the birds it was a beautiful and rare thing to see. On top of that there was a reptile sanctuary (included in our €3!!!), while it wasn't my thing i did hold a lizard which was a great experience and my friend who is big into lizards and scaley things was highly impressed with it. Ill definitely be returning next year to fly my own hawk and visit oscar.

Great place to bring the kids. They enjoyed every minute, worth the couple of euro to go .
Kids got picture taken with the Lucy the owl and it turned out lovely. The senery around the surrounding area is just out of this world, and once you get a fine day, you can walk around and kids will have a ball. Again the staff got 10 out of 10 for been good with the kids.

Visited the bird of prey centre, but was a little disappointed! Sure there were plenty of birds, all secured on posts, but near enough to see! However, we had hoped to see one flying outdoor, but were told you have to pre book this and of course....it's extra!!Not too much to do in the centre then after you have viewed the ten or so birds!

Thank you for taking the time to review our centre. Flying a hawk is something that has to be booked in advance, and of course there is a fee for this amazing experience, it's not included in the €3 entrance fee into the centre. To "observe" the flying is completely free, it's something you "look at happening" on the golf course! Included in the entrance fee is Kayleigh's exotic sanctuary, where she houses snakes, lizards, and other exotics like geckos, chameleons and a blue tongued skink.
