The guide was extremely knowledgeable, engaging and fun. The experience with the birds was amazing. The hawk was so well trained and getting time with the owls was such a bonus!!

Yes, of course! It's only 10 min. from Killarney town center and we followed Geoffrey's directions. I told him the hotel we were staying at and he sent us directions via email.
