It immediately became clear that the owner of this centre is tremendously passionate about his birds. They are well looked after, know and trust the man who takes care of them and you can tell his work comes from the heart. Amazing place to visit!

Looked after and superbly informed about Owls and Birds of Prey in bright, clean surroundings. Stewart is so knowledgeable and kind, loved by his Birds and the people who help him. I would thoroughly recommend a visit.

It's a small place and not that many birds, but you can tell they are well kept. Really worth visiting.

This is probably a silly question but are dogs allowed into the centre ? Thanks

Response from OrlaGoldenEagle | Property representative |
Sorry, strictly no dogs allowed.
It has come to my notice that every now and again some people complain about these wonderful birds of prey being tethered to their perches. Do they honestly expect to see Eagles, buzzards and Hawks flying around and not disappearing into the distance? It also astonishes me that the centre is currently sitting at 91% on Tripadvisor, so are the other 91% of people wrong in their views? Perhaps someone can get back to me with an answer?
