Birds of Prey Centre

A unique opportunity to get up close & personal with magnificent birds of prey.

Birds of Prey Show

Our guide will have the whole family enthralled as these stunning birds soar through the sky landing just feet away. Learn about how these birds survive – where they live, what do they eat and much more. Our guides are fountains of knowledge when it comes to their beautiful birds.

Show will take place each day at 4pm from the 26th of June 2017.

Hawk walks

For an even more interactive experience we have our new hawk walks. Walk through Westport House’s woodland trails with the hawk periodically flying down to land on a gloved hand. Group sizes can vary from 1 to 30 people.

A very unique, exciting experience and perfect for corporate groups, hens, school tours, tour groups or just as amazing way to spend a walk.

All hawk walks must be pre – booked in advance by calling  +353 98 27766.

Please note that while buggies are highly recommended for use in the extensive gardens, Pirate Adventure Park and campsite, they are unfortunately not permitted in Westport House in an effort to preserve the antique parquet floors. You may park your buggy inside in the ante-library while you tour the House. You might like to bring your own baby carrier or please feel free to borrow one of ours while you’re in the House.
