  • When I saw this excursion on the list of things to do I assumed it was a tourist trap where you walk with the falconer and get a snap with the hawk. Not at all. They give you a hawk to walk...

  • This was hands down our favorite thing we did in Ireland!! Our guide, Tommy, was amazing. He made it so much fun. The scenery was spectacular, and our hawks, Acorn and Chestnut were beautiful. We were able to send them off and have them land on our gloves dozens of times. It was truly a magical experience. We hated to say goodbye at the end of our walk. Another bonus of this activity is being able to see the grounds of Ashford castle. They are stunning. I would 100% recommend this activity. (P.S. I’m only wearing sandals because the airline lost my luggage. I would recommend wearing enclosed shoes.)
  • THIS IS A MUST DO WHILE VISITING IRELAND! We made a special trip to the school upon a recommendation. It is 100% worth making the trip here. The facility is well maintained and every staff member is exceptionally nice. Our instructor (Jonathan) was really awesome! Makes you feel right at home. The hawks are an awesome addition to the experience. Make sure you go by and check out Dingle!
