We were very lucky to be there on a bright sunny day and could watch a great show. Awesome birds, very good staff who gave lots of information. Definitely worth a visit which you can combine with the cave.
Terrific entertainment. An impressive array of birds and some even more impressive theatrics from clearly well trained raptors. The staff are engaging and clearly at the top of their game. Loads of interesting facts about the birds, including their tendency to fly off- one falcon was recently tracked down using its transponder to a spot near Shannon airport. There are large aviaries to the side where you can bone up on all the other species that didn't make the demonstration that day. There's a nice little gift shop adjoining the main arena. And the other side of the courtyard there's a great cheese shop where you can also buy vast slices of fudge and pretty good coffee too. Behind the main counter you can see huge cheeses maturing on raked shelves. Lot of little discoveries- an ideal day out for families. And of course there's the Aillwee caves at the top of the hill!
