Birds of Prey Centre

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

Birds of Prey Show

Learn all about these amazing birds – owls, falcons and maybe even an eagle – and their flying and hunting habits.  Watch them fly overhead. Even get your photo taken with them.  This is a really engaging and enjoyable experiences for people of all ages.  Shows are priced €450 per show for groups of 15+ people.

Hawk Walk

For an even more interactive experience, why not try  our new hawk walks. Walk through Westport House’s woodland trails with the hawk periodically flying down to land on your gloved hand.  It’s an experience you’ll never forget!  Group sizes can vary from a minimum of 2 people to 30 people.

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

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