Falconry is an ancient art, reputed to be the oldest sport in the world. Originating in the Far East around 2000 BC, as a means of catching food for yourself and your family, falconry spread westwards reaching the shores of Europe long before the end of the first millennium.
By 1228 when Ashford Castle was built, falconry was well established in Ireland, not only amongst the nobility, but throughout the native Irish people too.
As the next millennium begins there can hardly be a more historic location for you to fly a hawk.
Irelands First School of Falconry specializes in teaching falconry sessions using our beautiful Harris hawks, but in addition to hawks the school is home to a variety of eagles, owls and falcons.
