We went to mount falcon falconry and it was an amazing experience. Our guide Jason was very experienced and knowledgeable. The amount of birds they have was remarkable. And you get loads of hands-on experience with the birds.

By far the best thing we have done as a family in Ireland. An amazingly interactive experience. Jason, the Falconer was passionate and knowledgable and a joy to listen to.

Stayed here many times, thoroughly relaxing, plenty of activities for children. Lovely walks around the estate and lake. Lovely views of the woods from the pool/spa. Excellent salmon fishing, licences and anything we needed were provided at the hotel. Very enjoyable stay yet again!!

We stayed at Mount Falcon at the end of January. It's a lovely place to relax. We enjoyed the food and chilling out by the fire. The room was also very spacious and comfortable. Perfect for a short weekend away. Lovely staff.
