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.

I really recommend a visit to Mayfield Bird's of Prey. We are 3 adults who had never been close to a falcon, owl or hawk and we were a bit nervous. There was no need. Willie is so engaging, knowledgeable, and passionate about his birds, who are really well taken care of. The birds are beautiful and each has their own personality. We learnt a lot and got up close to more than a dozen owls, hawks and falcons. We even hunted with Mikey the Harris Hawk. We got more than our money's worth.
We went off season but made arrangements the day before our visit via email.

Hands down the best experience we have done this summer!
We had an absolute ball with Willie and his knowledgeable team at Mayfield birds of prey, we booked the hawk walk experience and I was nervous of the actual birds. However, Willie made me feel confident in holding and flying Mikey the hawk and I left there with a new found love of these amazing birds.
10/10, would do it again and will recommend to all my friends.

I couldn't recommend Mayfield Birds of Prey highly enough. My teenage daughter and I chose the Birds of Prey Flying Experience. Willie spent much longer than the hour and a half we were expecting patiently introducing us to all of the birds, letting us experience flying the hawks and getting photographs. It was incredible value for money, Willie obviously puts the welfare of the birds above all else. Thanks for a fabulous morning Willie, an experience we won't forget.

Truly spectacular. A once-in-a-lifetime experience with hawks, owls & falcons. Even as a non-bird enthusiast, I left completely enamored with Mikey the hawk & a whole host of different owl species with special love for Boo. Willie was an amazing host & educator & captured the attention of two 9-year old boys for over 2 hours.

Me my wife and our 2 kids just spent 2 most enjoyable hours at Mayfield Birds of prey in Kilmacthomas County Waterford. I must say Willie was the best at giving us the time and the information on the birds that he had. Thanks you very much and I would like to recommend a visit to anybody you will have a great time and learn a lot about the Birds who are the stars of the visit. Thank you Willie for your time and we will be back as soon as we can.
