“very entertaining”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

we went to the birds of prey and the Aillwee caves.(2 adults plus 1 student rate came to 49 euros) so not cheap but still a good day out. The birds of prey show was very informative and entertaining. The children and adults were allowed to let the falcons fly onto their arms which was great fun. The staff were very knowledgeable and clearly cared a great deal for the birds. All in all a very enjoyable time

“Excellent for all ages”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We stopped here on a typical rainy day during a drive through the Burren. They have demonstrations with the trained birds and youngsters and adults get a chance to hold and feed hawks, falcons and owls. This is a rescue center with birds from all over the world. Plan on a couple of hours here after you vist the nearby Ailwee Cave. Walk across the car park to the Craft Village and sample some excellent locally made cheese!

“When on The Burren, a great stop for all the family, the Birds of Prey”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

I was not sure if I would like this attraction, however my clients wanted to stop here.Within a very shot time I was converted. The Birds of Prey are very well looked after by people who know what they are doing and only have the interest of the birds at heart.
During the day they put on a show where the birds fly, this is not to be missed, remember to ask for show times, you should also visit the Allwee Cave in the same area, the Tour is well worth visiting and the Guides are great.

“last flight of night”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Excellent talk by resident expert and demonstration of peregrine falcon in flight. We were rather late and would have liked to spend a bit more time there.
