Birds of prey centre, what a place to visit!
So many birds and we also took in the flying display..jenny and James were amazing with the birds and had loads of information..so amazing to see these birds up close and some of them flying in the display..
My son was so excited to go see these birds and wasn't dissapointed..left one happy chap!!
Birds are well looked after and cared for..
Would recommend to anyone to go suitable for small children to adults, times vary from 31st Aug for the birds displays but you can do the alliwee cave first and have time to go back down!

We visited the Birds of Prey centre this week. Sorroundings are spectacular as was the weather. The flights of the birds was amazing. Their speed, agility, stealth (Owl) all impressed. The staff were friendly and passionate about these beautiful birds of prey. I'd highly recommend a visit

Extremely disappointed. It is not cheap. We were here probably 10 years ago and were excited to be returning, while the grounds and aviaries have improved, the show was very disappointing two birds! We have been to many shows around the country and Europe and this has to be the most disappointing, a barn owl and hawk ten minutes, while the staff were informative, the duration was not satisfactory, most other shows are at least an hour. Wont be recommending this tour and I don't give a dissatisfied review lightly.

NOT TO BE MISSED. The whole experience was amazing from start to finish and the highlight of our weeks holiday in Doolin. Walking throw the woods with Juan the Harris Hawk was bucket list stuff. Being so close to such a beautiful bird was exhilarating. Lucy our falconer was so knowledgeable and was so good at handling and coaching the bird. Myself, my husband and my 6 year old son all got the opportunity to call the hawk and we literally could have spent the whole morning with Lucy and Juan. We will definitely be back to do this again.

Wasn’t expecting much from this but I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it! really great show and the staff are clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about the animals in their care.
Wish I had time to stay for more than one show as it was great to be see these beautiful creatures soaring around and getting close to us.
I’d definitely go again and I’d 100% recommend it to anyone (that’s not afraid of birds!)

I'll be totally honest. We were here to see the Aillwee Caves and didn't really know what to expect from the Birds of Prey Centre but we said we'd give it a go.

OMG....it was brilliant. We stayed for two shows and we got to see a host of wonderful birds of prey and got to see them up close (not too close) and in full flight.

The people doing the shows were interesting and entertaining and great with the birds.

A great place and a must see if visiting the Caves or just in the area....

Absolutely LOVED this ! The birds are beautiful, the handlers and guides are passionate and very helpful and willing to share their knowledge. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. Note: bring you own snacks/lunch as the area is not serviced with a cafe...just a cheese shop.....??

Loved this! We bought these tickets with Ailwee Cave, didn't know much about it but it was the uncontested highlight of our trip! The staff are so lovely and knowledgeable. It is so well run and such a good show. We had a 10 and 11 year old with us who thoroughly enjoyed the show and seeing the birds afterwards. We really enjoyed it and everyone is so friendly. Great spot!

Family fun and very entertaining. They put on a great show and most importantly, they are caring for some rare species of birds.
