The traditional application of falconry has been to take a Bird of Prey, train it and then attempt to catch wild quarry with it. Although our guided walks with hawks experience, is not a hunting expedition, it is a leisurely stroll through the majestic settings of Killarney with falconer and hawk/or team of hawks and shows the ability of trained birds and their relationship with their human partners.The participants will have hands on experience with the hawks,you will be able to handle and fly the hawk yourselves under instruction from killarney falconry's falconers. We finish up with an owl encounter where you can handle & hold an owl. Private Hawk Walk Duration 1hr approx One Participant 70euro Two Participants 100euro Three Participants 130euro Family Package (2adults/2kidsU14)120euro Extra Participants/Spectators €30each, Times between 10am to 3.30pm Daily Weather permitting activity. Pre-booking avoids disappointment Locations for Hawk Walks may change due to conditions but normally 5/10mins drive from Killarney town centre Kind Regards Killarney Falconry Geoffrey 0872401551 / 00353872401551

We tried to get there but this place doesn't exist 😲 We asked people around about the falconry and they didn't even know what were we talking about. We used the navigation to guide us to the street name

Killarney Falconry more than met our expectations! We walked with Geoff and Texas the Harris Hawk. Feeding and walking with Texas was incredible! It was such an amazing experience! Geoff was great and so knowledgeable. He even taught us to use "slo-mo" on our phones! Haha! The owls were the ultimate bonus! My husband and I would definitely recommend this... More

We totally enjoyed our Hawk Walk with Liam! He is extremely knowledgeable about birds of prey. Liam is very interesting and does a great job teaching you about these amazing birds. Arizona the Harris Hawk is very fun to watch! My 7 year old granddaughter really enjoyed holding Gandalf but her favorite was the adorable little barn owl that snuggled... More

Geoffrey was extremely accommodating in the midst of a wildcat railroad strike. He is personable, and the experience went far beyond just the falconry. But, the falconry: Wow! We were able to spend time with Steve the Harris hawk in the countryside, and couldn't have had a more rewarding experience. Not to mention Gandalf and Mr. B. Very easily the... More

We loved our falconry experience. Liam was personable, knowledgeable, and an all around good time! You'll learn so much about birds of prey and enjoy a walk through some beautiful Irish countryside! I would recommend this experience to anyone. This was a highlight of our trip to Ireland. Thank you Liam and Killarney Falconry!

I emailed over not expecting a reply so soon as it was already well past business hours and we were only in town the next day before venturing out again. Geoffrey emailed... More

Geoff accommodated my mom and me last minute through a Hawk Walk with Liam (and Steve!). Simple taxi drive from Killarney.. met up at a path in the woods to meet the birds. Liam could not have been more lovely. Steve was a joy. We enjoyed every second of it. Wish we could try it again!

Geoffrey O'Donoghue was a wonderful host. Despite some initial difficulties with finding our meeting place (hint: as soon as you go over the bridge, park immediately on the left), we rescheduled and had a delightful time meeting Donnie (short for Donatello), a Harris hawk, as well as an Irish barn owl and a Great Gray owl.
