Falconry in Ireland dates back to the 7th century. The earliest known reference to falconry is in the Irish text Betha Colman Maic Luachain (The Life of St Colman Maic Luachain), in which the King of Tara is described as having ‘da seabhac selga’, or two hunting hawks.
Long since the hunting tool of commoner and nobility alike, falconry is a fascinating experience to be had. You will learn about hawks, owls and eagles and the history of these majestic birds in Ireland, you’d be surprised how frequently and where they pop up.
You’ll be able to hold them and get some fantastic pictures before seeing an amazing flying display, and get a glimpse of how some folk of old hunted with these beautiful creatures.
Hawk walks or mobile flying displays are available as well as a static display with historical talk, so talk to us about the possibilities.
- This event can be run at the bird’s resident falconry or we can bring this event to you provided the outside venue is suitable. We have a wealth of experience with these displays in Hotels with grounds / Country Houses and Estates etc please talk to us about your requirements and we can advise you on the perfect venues.
