The instructor will teach you how to release and call the hawk while walking through the woods.

Burren Birds of Prey Centre reviews
Very enjoyable afternoon. The staff were very knowledgable and friendly. Great to get up close and personal with the birds. The show was very interesting and a chance to take a photo with a falcon at.... more »
Well worth the trip to see the birds and watch the show the speakers were really knowledgeable and you can tell they love what they do. 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
