What you'll do
Jim, our Master Falconer will introduce you to an array of amazing birds of prey including Owls, Hawks and Falcons in our purpose built falconry centre within a replica Norman castle. Jim will then teach you how to handle these birds before giving you the chance to hold each of these birds in turn, giving great photo opportunities. The cost of this experience also gives you access to the wider heritage park which you can explore by yourself or join one of our many guided tours at no extra cost.
Jim the falconer is the resident Birds of Prey expert here at the Irish National Heritage Park. He has owned and managed birds all of his adult life and his passion for these amazing animals is infectious. He now works full time in our purpose built Falconry centre where he trains and takes care of our amazing array of birds.

Where you'll be
You will meet Jim the Falconer in our custom built Falconry Centre, styled on a Medieval castle, inside the grounds of the Irish National Heritage Park. (unfortunately, this area is not wheelchair accessible) The falconry centre is atop a hill so there is a short walk up a gradual hill.
