Hawkeye Falconery Reviews

  • Absolutely awesome experience. Still amazed by what we got to experience here. These birds of prey fly all around in the big beautiful open field and land directly on your glove. This is an up close experience! Do not do if you are afraid of birds. But if intrigued by falconry and/or just looking for a unique experience, this is amazing. John was incredibly informative and nice, and you can tell he has a real passion for what he does. He and Carolyn who run the place really seem to love these birds. Introduces them all to you by their names! It was pretty pricey but overall very well worth it. We did the private family experience and it lasted about 1-1.5 hours.

  • What a fantastic visit we had today. This really is a once off experience. Staff are very friendly and you can see they love their birds and have built up a fantastic relationship with them. We came away with an amazing amount of information and appreciation for these magnificent creatures and really want to lear more about our native Irish owls. My daughter who absolutely loves birds came away with the biggest smile on her face and she can't wait to learn more. All of us fell in love with Reggie, even tho he was still in holiday mode 😆

  • From the ease of booking online, to the pristine facilities, the Hawkeye Falconry ensures a pleasant experience from the very start. Our family of 5 took our tour with John. John was knowledgeable, friendly, and so great with our kids (ages 10-14). He walked us through the history of falconry, introduced us to their variety of falcons, before letting our family each meet Turbo, the owl. After getting adorable selfies with Turbo, John took us out into the fields with Egbert, the Harris hawk. Each person got 5-6 “flights” with Egbert. John would call Egbert from the nearby trees, who would then fly/perch on our hand. You truly get a majestic, eye-opening interaction with the hawk. It was absolutely delightful. I can’t recommend this falconry enough!

  • This is absolutely a must see and experience to go to. Your age does not matter, from child to old, your heart will soar almost as high as these amazing birds of prey do. My fiance and I experienced the private Eagle walk, where we met the owlet Turbo (super photogenic!), walked a lap around the field with a hawk, having Bertie fly from tree to our gloved hand many times, to eat the morsel of meat from our glove. We got fantastic footage of long direct flights towards us, and also walked with him on our hand a bit. I cannot express enough how much this meant to me, and it met every hope and dream that I had for this experience.
