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!
My wife and I participated in the hour long hawk walk and it was an absolutely incredible experience. Our guide Jonathan was very knowledgeable and informative, and we would highly recommend him to anyone. We booked months in advance and the communication was excellent as well. The walk to the school itself weaves through beautiful gardens and old castle structures. Overall, this is something that we will never forget!
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.
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.
