Once in a lifetime experience. Trevor is absolutely amazing and you can tell he truly loves his birds and they love him. He took the time to teach our group of 7 about each type of bird he has and made sure everyone go to catch each owl and have a picture made. Everyone got a chance to witness the... More

I cannot say enough great things about this experience. From the moment that we arrived Trevor basically welcomed us into his family. He immediately informed us that the two hour time frame was not true, that he would keep us until we all had an experience with all of the birds no matter how long it took. Amazing is not... More

We had the most amazing time. Trevor clearly cares for these birds as if they are his own children . We were delighted when Trevor explained various aspects of each bird - our children are quite young yet still he was able to adjust the "educational " element to their needs . Huge fans of Dublin Falconry and would highly... More

This was a highlight of our trip! Trevor loves his job and is excellent in what he does! I was trying to figure out how to fit in a Falconry experience on our trip. Then I was given Trevor’s name. Wow what an awesome time we had. We spent more than 2 hours with him, first learning how he trains... More

We visited in early September and had a fantastic time. Trevor clearly cares for his birds immensely and is able to tell you all about the animals in general and his in particular in an engaging way. The Hawk Walk is so much fun - you have so many opportunities for the hawk to fly to you and photo opportunities... More

This place is in a lovely scenic setting and is only a short drive from the city. Trevor is a friendly, informative guy who takes excellent care of his birds (and his two lovely dogs!!). His passion for the animals is obvious. The two of us held,fed and flew four beautiful owls while Trevor readily answered any questions we threw... More

Trevor, the owner, is a waking encyclopedia on birds of prey, and a great communicator. He spent 2 hours with us, as I had bought a gift certificate for an "Owl Experience". He told us all about the owls in his centre - the barn owls, the long earred Owl, and the massive Eagle Owls, and we flew them to... More

I have always wanted to have a hawk land on my arm and my dream came true in Ireland! From the moment you drive up the hill to the cottage the experience is amazing. Trevor is so passionate about the birds and you can tell he has a strong bond with each of them. He was very patient with us... More

I took my girlfriend here for the Owl Experience for her birthday and I have to say, this was the highlight of my entire Dublin trip.
