Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Munster / County Clare / The Burren / Ballyvaughan / Burren Birds of Prey Centre
Burren Birds of Prey Centre provides educational flying displays of birds of prey, and the opportunity to interact with the birds first-hand. At the flying display you will see different hawks, eagles, falcons, and owls from around the world fly over your heads as the trainer describes their habits to you. Take the hawk walk to get up close and personal with the birds; you'll be given an introduction to falconry and have the chance to handle a Harris hawk for the hour. The instructor will teach you how to release and call the hawk while walking through the woods.

Burren Birds of Prey Centre Reviews
A great place, to get up close to some fantastic birds. The show is well worth seeing and it was so informative, thanks to Clodagh. more »
This place was my favorite part of my trip, from beginning to end, we were greeted by friendly and knowledgeable staff. My sister and I did the hawk walk with Declan, which was an amazing experience..... more »
An amazing experience: go to the raptor display, and more than one if you can (they are different every time with different birds and different instructors). There also a nice zoo-style display and the instructors are very friendly and seem to always be ready to talk raptors (and sometimes other birds). The major attraction though is the personal hawk walk: you get to walk into the forest carrying a Harris Hawk, release and catch it, and watch it catch things. It is a bit costly but the experience is well worth it and you can always think of it as a donation to the centre's wild life conservation efforts.
Excellent. Well informed trainers have great demonstration. Brilliant selection of birds with good information. Could walk around at leisure. Reasonably priced
