Discover one of the world's most ancient sports

Ireland's oldest School of Falconry is a must-try when you stay at The Lodge. Guests are always astonished by the hawks' grace and stealth - and there's simply no better setting than in the grounds of Ashford Castle.  Suitable for all ages no experience is required as you are led on a private hawk walk and watch as the Harris Hawks display their dexterity and fly to your gloved hand. 

As you fly the hawks, your instructor will explain all about the hawks' incredible eyesight, their speed & agility and how they were trained by the Falconry School themselves.

You will never forget the moment when your hawks first swoop down from a tree and land back on your gloved fists.
