Thank you for your enquiry. The Falconry experience is very hands on and interactive so yes, each person will get to call the Hawk a number of times to their glove and there will be fantastic photo opportunities. There are two options available, you can choose one of these:
Duration 1 hour €70 for 1 person €30 per person extra
We will demonstrate the Ancient Art of Falconry. Watch our Hawks demonstrate their hunting skills by catching food out of the air and witness a simulated rabbit hunt where our Hawk will chase and catch the dummy bunny and the falconer will demonstrate the transfer from the dummy bunny. Enjoy a casual walk as our Hawk follows on while he flies to your gloved fist to feed and returns to the trees. Get to handle one of our Owls while the Falconer teaches you about the species. Fantastic photo opportunities throughout the experience.
Duration 40 min €60 for 1 person €20 per person extra
Get the opportunity to walk with one of our Hawks while calling the Hawk from the trees to your gloved fist to feed. To finish you get to handle one of our owls. Fantastic photo opportunities throughout the experience.
