Welcome to Ireland's School of Falconry

Founded in 1999 the oldest Falconry School in Ireland specialises in one-hour Private Hawk Walks where you will fly our wonderful Harris hawks around the spectacular grounds of Ashford Castle. Within minutes of arriving you will have a hawk on your glove and will be setting off on an adventure to fly your hawk free around the gardens and through the woodlands of Ashford Castle, an unrivalled location. Our Hawk Walks are a completely immersive, interactive and hands-on adventure. You will never forget the moment when your hawk first swoops down from a tree and lands back on your gloved fist. Flying a hawk is a remarkable experience that is truly a connection with nature.
