Owner description: Eagles Flying is a scientifically run Wildlife Sanctuary specializing on Birds of Prey and Owls. We focus on "hands on" interaction between our well trained animals and our visitors. During our educational flying demonstrations members of the audience can have a bird of prey land on their hand or have Eagles, Falcons, Hawks or Vultures stoop inches over their heads while Scientists inform in a friendly and fun way. Our visitors can also visit our unique "Touch-Zoo" where they can play and pet "Tui & Alan" our Foxes, get pick pocketed by "Grizzly" our tame Raccoon, have "Monty" our 4 meter Python around their shoulders or get up close and personal with any of the other unusual animals. Get closer than you have ever been to the masters of the sky. Eagles Flying really is an unforgettable experience and a must see for people of all ages and interests.

We are very lucky to live near Eagles Flying in Ballymote, Co. Sligo and I can recommend it to people of all ages.

The birds fly very low over your head, its fascinating. They are such graceful, elegant creatures.
Lothar and his family will tell you about the birds in an interesting and amusing way.
You will get to see all kinds of birds inflight, including hawks, kestrels, owls and a turkey vulture. You get to see them at very close quarters and can ask any questions you have.

We've been several times and its great to see the owls as babies and then go back a few months later and see them fly.

Not only are there birds to see there are many other animals, including: donkeys, goats, sheep, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets and even a pig! You can feed and pet most of the animals.

If you are anywhere near Sligo on your trip try and get to Eagles flying, its a great day out and well worth the money.

I have taken lots of photos at the centre, most of them are on flickr, I'll put some on here as well.

This is a wonderful, informative, and fun experience. The highlight is a one hour program consisting of everything you could want to know about these beautiful birds, and a free-flying demonstration that has falcons, hawks, owls, and eagles flying right over your head! This is followed by the rare opportunity to touch some of them (most have been hand raised).

Appropriate for children and adults, there is a petting zoo with a donkey, pig, hedge hog, etc.

Free-Flying Demonstrations daily (subject to weather conditions) at 11am & 3pm

open Good Friday to November 7th
10:30am - 12:30pm 2:30 to 4:30
