Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The falconry experience was one of the great highlights of our trip. My wife and I both love birds and this was an amazing opportunity to hold and enjoy birds of prey. Brian is a wonderful person who was friendly and fun, and taught us a tremendous amount about the eagles, hawks, falcons and owls that we held and observed. I HIGHLY recommend this experience for anyone traveling to this part of Ireland.

Had an absolutely wonderful time with Brian at Castle Leslie in Monaghan. Brian’s knowledge and love of the birds is captivating, and being so close to these marvellous creatures is an experience I’ll never forget.

Bryan gave my friend and I a private experience at Carton House in County Kildare. It was very much worth the money. Brian McCann was a delight and so were his beautiful Falcons, Owls and Eagles. Such magnificent birds and a true privilege to be up close and personal with these marvellous creatures. Brian was so knowledgeable and I learnt so much about the history of Falconry and each bread of bird. I highly recommend this experience either at Brian’s family owned grange or at one of his regularly visited county estates where his services are offered. My favourite Owls were Tiny (white owl) who got sweetly fresh with me and Cindy (brown barn owl) with the most beautiful eyes. Thank you Brian for a lovely experience!

NewGrange Falconry is a fantastic experience with the most beautiful birds. We spent hours with Golden Eagle, Owls, Hawks and Falcons. It was a hands on experience with birds, very much at ease and Brian’s passion and kindness for the birds is obvious.
Romeo and Scott, Falcons are majestic and to see them up close and in flight against the stunning backdrop of the Irish landscape was a privilege. We walked with sibling Harris Hawks who were a joy to interact with.
Barbara’s tea brack was delicious and a very welcome treat on the day.
The whole experience was an absolute delight, to spend time in good company was an absolute pleasure.
I would highly recommend this, many thanks to Brian for an exceptional day.

July of 2022 we visited many places in Ireland. One of our highlights was meeting Brian McCann. He spent time imparting his knowledge and getting to know each of us. His many birds were amazing and while I was hesitant, he soon allayed my fears and gave me the experience of a lifetime. Thank you Brian for sharing your passion with us. I highly recommend this unique experience.

We had such a wonderful time meeting and getting to know the birds. Brian was funny, knowledgeable and made this bucket list experience truly wonderful! It was so interesting being to see each of the birds personalities and understanding the kind of care each requires.

Thank you Newgrange Falconry for being a highlight of my trip to Ireland!

We booked a falconry experience with Brian while staying at Castle Leslie. You can also book also book with him direct, which we'll def do the next time.

It was amazing from start to finish and the array of beautiful extremely well looked after birds he has was truly amazing.

Golden eagles, falcons, owls and hawks and we were able to interact with the birds and also got to try falconry ourselves.

Brian is a very nice man and totally made our day and our year!!

Thank you so much.

We booked falconry while staying at Castle Leslie. It was an amazing experience. Brian is friendly, enthusiastic, articulate and so knowledgeable about his birds (owls, hawks and eagles) - we learnt so much from him about the birds, their habits and the environment. The time literally flew by. The birds are fascinating - we felt very lucky to see them up close and handle the owls and hawks - they are awesome creatures. The experience of flying Buddy and Tina the Harris hawks was spectacular -- I hadn't really known what to expect and I'm so glad we booked the session. It's a great activity for teenagers. It's also a super experience for pre-teens -- especially if they have any interest in nature, animals or Harry Potter! I'd been expecting an hour but it was more like 1hr 45 - 2hrs. Thank you Brian & birds!
