The Burren Birds of Prey Center

The Birds of Prey Center is home to one of the largest and most varied collection of raptors (birds of prey) in Ireland, including Eagles, Falcons, Hawks, Owls, and Vultures. Expert handlers provide detailed information and the opportunity to see many of these wonderful birds in free flight.
The backdrop of the dramatic free flight is the Burren landscape.

A beautiful Harris Hawk takes off from the arm of a visitor for a time of free flight.

A Vulture shows off his massive wingspan and pretty face!

And a Falcon watches from above and catches food "on the fly" when it is ready!
