This was a highlight of our trip! Trevor loves his job and is excellent in what he does! I was trying to figure out how to fit in a Falconry experience on our trip. Then I was given Trevor’s name. Wow what an awesome time we had. We spent more than 2 hours with him, first learning how he trains... More

We visited in early September and had a fantastic time. Trevor clearly cares for his birds immensely and is able to tell you all about the animals in general and his in particular in an engaging way. The Hawk Walk is so much fun - you have so many opportunities for the hawk to fly to you and photo opportunities... More

This place is in a lovely scenic setting and is only a short drive from the city. Trevor is a friendly, informative guy who takes excellent care of his birds (and his two lovely dogs!!). His passion for the animals is obvious. The two of us held,fed and flew four beautiful owls while Trevor readily answered any questions we threw... More

Trevor, the owner, is a waking encyclopedia on birds of prey, and a great communicator. He spent 2 hours with us, as I had bought a gift certificate for an "Owl Experience". He told us all about the owls in his centre - the barn owls, the long earred Owl, and the massive Eagle Owls, and we flew them to... More

I have always wanted to have a hawk land on my arm and my dream came true in Ireland! From the moment you drive up the hill to the cottage the experience is amazing. Trevor is so passionate about the birds and you can tell he has a strong bond with each of them. He was very patient with us... More

I took my girlfriend here for the Owl Experience for her birthday and I have to say, this was the highlight of my entire Dublin trip. Trevor, the proprietor and trainer, let my girlfriend and I have an intimate experience with six different owls ranging in type, age and size. Not only did she get to hold and pet them... More

Entertainment at its finest! Seeing the connection Trevor has with these birds was incredible. Such majestic creatures and Trevor puts a comedic spin on the Hawk Walk. Be sure to bring your Iphone camera and get some selfie videos of the Hawk/Falcon landing on your hand. Not a bird fan? Just walking along with your group is entertainment in and... More

A 5 star rating does not represent the greatness of this tour. Our host, Trevor Roche, knows how to handle humans as well as his birds. He provided information in a funny and memorable presentation. This was an outstanding experience for our entire group of 13 from the young boys to the seniors. We never saw so many smiles. Trevor... More

We had no idea what to expect when we made our plans with Trevor. It was an easy train ride to Balbriggan, and short cab to him. First we got to meet Olivia the barn owl, she was so sweet! We got to hold her and watched her interact with Trevor. Then Trevor introduced us to all of his other... More
