Had a tremendous time on a hawk walk today. Alec, our guide, was knowledgeable and very patient with my 4 year old son. Inca, the hawk, was an absolute star. It was so incredible to watch her fly and hunt. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone.
My cousin had found the falconry school online and was very excited, even more so when she found out about the owl she was ecstatic. I always like to go for new adventures while traveling, so I was game to join in. When we arrived at the school we were told we would be walking Killary and Swifty. To hold... 更多
We visited this school because it featured heavily in Nora Roberts' The Dark With Trilogy. We booked before we left the UK and when we arrived we were very impressed with the setup and the cleaniness of the falconry and the birds therein. We went for our hawk walk with Connell and our hawks were Stoker and Joyce (Literary connections... 更多
My partner and I went on a hawk walk today and had a lovely time. Located at the beautiful Ashford Castle, the walk was set in a nice forest area next to a garden walking path. Getting to hold the hawk and have her return was a really cool experience - definitely worth doing if you can. The falconer who... 更多
We had found out about the school of Falconry from our brother-in-law and visited the website and saw some of the videos. That did it for me. We made reservations for 2 couples and did the extended hawk walk which was 90 minutes long. What a great adventure. We had 2 hawks to take out and fly. Our instructor gave... 更多
This was my son #1 request on our trip to Ireland. It was such a great experience that he truly enjoyed. I contacted Deborah and pre booked this before we left on vacation, she was helpful and informative about the school and the local area.. Our guide was truly great, a young girls from Switzerland. She like my son is... 更多
This experience was my favorite thing we did on our entire trip! It's simply surreal to fly a hawk! The experience was unbeatable. The falconers are extremely friendly and knowledgeable and the grounds are beautiful. MUST DO when visiting Ireland!
Myself, my husband, and my 5 and 7 year old children enjoyed the awesome experience of launching and landing Hawks. Our guide, Lauren, was phenomenal! Calm, patient, polite, pleasant, friendly, and informative. We all truly loved the experience and are in awe of the amazing animals and trainers.
What an amazing experience! You will walk away with a feeling of exuberance and awe after taking a hawk for a walk through the forest. My spouse came along as the official photographer. This worked out great, as I was able to hog all the time with Stoker (our hawk named after the author of "Dracula.") Stoker even managed to... 更多
We attempted to pre-book but could not quite coordinate it. As we were in off-peak season, we decided to drive up and try to work in. Unfortunately, the day was fully scheduled and they could not accommodate us. But they provided a wonderful tour of the facility and overview of the birds and the sport of falconry. This activity is... 更多
My husband and I had a superb time on the extended Hawk Walk experience going through the woodland guided by the informative and very reassuring Tommy. The hawks we walked, Cara and Wexford, were great, and it was fascinating to learn about their behaviour and motivations. Tommy's enthusiasm, knowledge, instructions and narrative were excellent. The birds and the Ashford castle... 更多
This was a highlight of our trip to Ireland! Leony was our guide and she is awesome! We loved learning about the hawks and the science behind keeping them all healthy and happy. But nothing compares to walking through the woods with Killary soaring and swooping through the branches and straight to my hand! This was an experience I will... 更多
This was the simply the best experience for the family while we were in Ireland. Cara was a beautiful bird and my hubby can't stop talking about the experience. The other reviewers are all correct, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity that should not be missed!
Alec was our guide and he did a great job. Very professional and passionate about the birds. We really enjoyed the whole experience. My girlfriend and I learned a lot about Hawks and you couldn't ask for more. Highly recommend it.
