  • We had a wonderful and enchanting experience flying the hawks. My niece and I each had a hawk to work with. I had asked to have Maya again. I had her 3 years ago and they were able to accommodate the request. My niece flew her brother Aztec. It was an experience we will both remember for ever and when we return to Ireland will look forward to doing again. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and nice. We both would recommend it to anyone wanting to make a truly magical and unique memory with some truly incredible animals and the people who train and care for them.
  • We had the most magical walk with the hawks through a forest. Colin, our guide was excellent. He was full of interesting information about our hawks...Acorn and Chestnut! Id highly recommend it, for all ages. A very special activity.
  • A must if you are anywhere near Cong. Truly an incredible experience that will never be forgotten. Watching our hawks hunt, try to trick us to feed them, and swoop my head as they passed over was something I will remember and well worth the money.
  • Fascinating! The birds are amazing. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and I learned a great deal about their habits, individual personalities and training.
  • Absolute life experience! Fell in love with my Hawk, Beckett and delighted to share a moment with the wise old Owl, Dingle. Mel was a wonderful guide and the walk was perfect! Beautiful area too.
