Birds of Prey Centre inc Falconry Displays & Rare Bird Collections

Put simply, the Birds of Prey Centre is not to be missed when you visit Trabolgan! The 2015 season will see the centre open again, with an amazing array of birds of prey, falcons and rare birds to be seen.


Birds of Prey & Rare Birds Collections

Trabolgan Bird of Prey Educational Centre offers you and your family the chance to learn about birds of prey and to raise awareness of the indigenous species and environmental issues involved in their protection and conservation.   We endeavour to make your visit a very special one. Education through conservation is a very important part of what we do; the many children we talk to are in fact the future of these wonderful creatures. 
Our education centre is run by state licensed falconers with many years’ experience in handling, training and flying birds of prey.   

Falcons, Kestrels & Owls at the Birds of Prey Centre

On your visit to our educational centre you will get to see our beautiful falcons close up and personal including “Sean” the beautiful GYR/SAKER FALCON .  You can also meet our new BLACK KITE gifted to us by the BURREN BIRD OF PREY CENTRE.

Meet “Morgan” our native kestrel and we also have a fantastic selection of owls from “Lucy” the little spotted owl weighing in a 4oz to the magnificent “Oscar” our European Eagle Owl tipping the scale at just over 9lbs.  

Our owlets Whisper” the Barn Own and Leopold” the Bengal Eagle Owl are last year’s youngsters and are simply stunning.  We hope to add new owlets soon.


*Fly your own Hawk! (Book at the Clubhouse)

A once in a lifetime opportunity to interact with one of nature’s top Raptors awaits you. Harris Hawks are the world’s only social Raptors and are perfectly suited to working with the public. Your instructor will coach you on how to release and call your hawk back. You then set off for an unforgettable experience so make sure to bring your camera to capture the exact moment your hawk flies to your glove. 

*Places are limited so to ensure quality time spent with the falconer, book early to avoid disappointment. Due to popular demand, another Harris Hawk is trained and ready to fly.  All flights are weather dependent. Age and height restrictions apply.
