A once in a life time opportunity to interact with one of nature's top predators awaits you, all in the unique setting of Aillwee Mountain, Co Clare. On arrival, you will be greeted by your instructor and given a brief but informative introduction to falconry and the Harris Hawks that you will be handling. These are the world's only social raptor and are perfectly suited to working with the public. Once comfortable with your hawk, you will set off to the Hazel Woods and into the depths of the spectacular Burren region. Your instructor will coach you on how to release and call your hawk back.
You will then walk through the woodland paths for an unforgettable 45 minutes of wonder and exhilaration as the hawk flies to and from you, demonstrating its mastery of the air, it’s thrilling maneuverability and its dashing speed. No previous experience is necessary and we cater for all ages. Our aim is to share with you the pleasure and excitement of falconry, a fascination that has enthralled people for over 4,000 years. Be sure to bring your camera, flying a Hawk is an experience of a lifetime.
