An amazing experience . Made truly interesting by Willy and crew. We went as a group of 6 and did a hawk walk . To have these raptors fly to and land on your arm is something not to be quickly forgotten. Absolutely recommend .

This truly made our trip to Waterford! We spent 2 hours here with the hawk and meeting the beautiful birds. There was a summer special for €25 per person and it was so worth it! Definitely recommend it for anyone passing through Waterford.
