Burren Birds of Prey Centre provides educational flying displays of birds of prey, and the opportunity to interact with the birds first-hand. At the flying display you will see different hawks, eagles, falcons, and owls from around the world fly over your heads as the trainer describes their habits to you. Take the hawk walk to get up close and personal with the birds; you'll be given an introduction to falconry and have the chance to handle a Harris hawk for the hour. The instructor will teach you how to release and call the hawk while walking through the woods.

  • Must visit if travelling in this part of the country . The tour of the caves was very interesting and the guide was very professional and knowledgeable, brought a comfort and relaxed feel to the tour , putting all at ease & been patient .. roughly 45 mins long . The birds of prey show was so informative and a great insight into these birds of prey. Everything was done with a comfort and in relaxed safe way , encouraging people to come forward to allow birds to rest on a supplied glove . There were shops to visit to pick up some memorabilia of the tours . Walks to go on also .. you will certainly need a few hours set aside to enjoy this experience.
  • Such a great experience here! We went early on a Sunday and we got a private tour of the cave because we were the only ones there for the 10 am tour. The knowledgeable and fun guide walked us through the large cave and told stories of how it was discovered and the geology of the Burren region. The birds of prey exhibit was really great too. We saw some crazy cool birds. All of the presenters were entertaining, and we learned about their conservation efforts in the area and around the world. Would highly recommend!
