What you'll do

You will love our private falconry experiences, due to 
1. The wide array of birds we introduce you to and teach you to fly from your leather glove (we provide the glove) 
2. The quality of our Master Falconers, Eric & Andi. Its just your group, our majestic birds of Prey and the falconers. No members of the public - a real VIP experience 
3. Our stunning location on Dingle Harbour ... we believe this is the best Falconry experience in all of Ireland, and we have experienced all the others.
CAFE & BAR:
Before or afterwards you can enjoy some home-made scones and cakes in our wee waterfront Cafe, or maybe a Dingle Gin & Tonic or a West Kerry Craft Golden Ale in our cosy ‘Robert Mitchum Library Bar’
IRISH WOLFHOUNDS:
We have a beautiful pack of adorable Irish Wolfhound puppies, Ogie and Saoirse. Our proud national dog and the largest in the world!

Hi, I'm the organiser of the Dingle School of Falconry & a Tour Guide with Rick Steves. I love the noble art of Falconry. I partnered with my friend Eric, a Master Falconer, to provide this 'wow moment' experience for guests. Everyday guests come to our majestic Dingle waterfront location to enjoy the thrill of holding & flying majestic Irish birds of Prey from a glove — Falcons, Owls and hawks. Our Falconers will also introduce you to our beautiful Golden Eagle, Orla. A species once extinct in Ireland. Guests can choose between Public Falconry Experiences & Private ‘Hawk walks’. Enjoy!

If you find yourself in Dingle, or anywhere near it, I highly recommend this experience. Although Stephen was not available for our experience, he communicated often and was extremely helpful and friendly. We met with Andi, our falconry guide. She was exceptional! The experience was very unique, well planned and educational (in an awesomely fun way of course!). There was personal attention for each of us, and none of us walked away disappointed! This experience is definitely meant to cater to the audience. At one point, Andi had us each take a slow motion movie as she released the bird to fly to us. Most places discourage pictures so it was nice to be in an environment where they not only encourage pictures, but actually have a period of time specifically for it! Lastly, the location is serene and beautiful. Right across the bridge from Dingle, there are cute little shops and lots of restaurants. Andi’s recommendation was pretty good! We would definitely do this again.
