  • Absolutely something you should do. My daughter and I went to the Falconry and had an amazing time. Well worth the money? The hosts were very informative and know the birds well. A must for all...

  • We booked in here with the kids whilst visiting Dingle this weekend. It was really interactive and informative, with lots of opportunities to hold the birds, have them fly to your glove and get up close with them. It was clear that the handlers have a huge love for and connection with these birds and the birds are very well looked after. A huge thanks to the team who went out of the way to ensure our kids (aged between 4 and 10yrs) really enjoyed the visit. The weather was a bit mixed, but this didn't take away from our experience. I would say this is a must visit experience if visiting Dingle... Thanks again to all at Kingdom falconry 👍
  • The highlight of our Dingle stay! We did the public falconry experience and it was amazing to be able to interact with the birds. Julien and Emily were passionate, knowledgeable and made sure everybody got a chance to hold a variety of birds. At the end we got to go in the aviary to meet other owls, hawks, and their golden eagle, Orla! Such a great experience.
  • Visited this place with some friends. Great experience seeing owls and falcons up close. Eric the falconer and his assistant, Emily, we're both super helpful and generous with their time. We went 10 minutes over our alotted timeslot. Would recommend for anyone visiting.
  • Kingdom Falconry is, without a doubt, the best spur of the moment decision I've made in some time. I booked a Sunday afternoon Hawk Walk (Kingdom Falconry is one of the businesses in Dingle that does offer Sunday times for interaction) and not only learned a massive amount from Emily and Julien (the handlers) but also Harry, Luna, Orla and the whole menagerie. It is lovely to have such an up close experience - it was private and very well time managed - all three in my party were offered gloves and had multiple opportunities to experience Harry flitting from one glove to the next, as well as space for perfectly set up and timed slow-mo shots that really showcase the beauty of his flight. Afterward, because we did get a little rained on, we were offered a short session with Luna (the young owl, perched on a handler's glove below) and a brief tour of the aviary. You could feel in every moment how cared for these birds are - and how they are asked only for performance of their natural behaviors. Kingdom Falconry feels a little like a love letter to these animals, and as a visitor you're offered a well tailored pass into the experience. I came to Dingle for a family visit, to see the same tourist sites as anyone, but I would come back even if all I could do was spend more time at Kingdom Falconry.
  • Great experience. I was surprised and delighted how often I got to hold the birds, even with a decent sized group there. The hosts were lovely.
