Great outing with Liam and his birds. Awesome working with the falcon, feeding it and seeing how it works. Six of us, adults and 20 somethings, everyone loved it. Nice to do something on our holiday that we couldn't do at home.

My friend and I went on a two-person hawk walk with Jeffrey, and it was awesome! Jeffrey was knowledgeable and funny, and our time with Arizona (a handsome Harris Hawk), Gandalf (a Great gray owl), and Mr. D (an adorable white owl) was well spent.

There isn't an address, they give you gps coordinates to meet them by a path. It's about 10 min from Killarney by car.

The price varies, depending on the number of people in your party. There were 2 of us, and we paid $100 US (needs to be paid in Euros, cash only) total, including tip.
