Ireland Falconry and Hawk Walks


The oldest established Falconry School in Ireland resides at Ashford Castle and offers you the chance to fly a hawk around the spectacular grounds of the Castle in a one hour private Hawk Walk. Within minutes of arriving, you will have a hawk on your glove and be setting off to fly your hawk or hawks in the gardens and woodlands surrounding Ashford Castle.

The Falconry School specialises in one hour private Hawk Walks where you fly the hawks. The aim is to share with you the pleasure and excitement of falconry, a fascination that has enthralled people for 4,000 years.

Your instructor will introduce you to your hawk and, within minutes, you will be setting off around the magnificent woodlands to fly your hawk free. As you fly the hawks, your instructor will explain about the hawks’ exceptional eyesight, their speed and agility and how the hawks were trained. The hawks will follow you from tree to tree through the woods before swooping down to land on your gloved fist. No previous experience is necessary and we cater for all ages, abilities and families.
