Dromoland Estate Activities
The Dromoland School of Falconry in Ireland is based at the world famous Dromoland Castle Five Star Resort which is situated in Co Clare Ireland. The School of Falconry is run by Dave Atkinson who has been working on Dromoland Estate for a number of years and has in-depth knowledge of the Castles History and estate wildlife.
Experience Falconry in Ireland with birds of prey up close and personal on a Hawk Walk in a 5 star Irish Castle. Your Instructor will teach you the natural history of the raptors and the role they play in our environment. Learn the basics of the ancient sport of falconry as well as the environmental concerns facing these beautiful birds.
You will never forget the moment when your hawk first lands on your gloved fist. During your Hawk Walk you will learn how to handle and fly one of the schools Harris Hawks. Your instructor will introduce you to your hawk and within minutes, you will be setting off around the magnificent woodlands to fly your hawk free.
