There are few places as beautiful and as evocative as Mount Juliet for practicing the ancient art of archery, though of course, our equipment and training are of the highest modern standards. We welcome archers of all abilities and ages, from six upward. Our trained personnel are there to ensure your safety and to give you any tips or training you may need.
There is some question as to whether the term ‘Sport of Kings’ refers to Falconry or to Horse riding. Your falconry experience takes the form of a walk through the estate, with our expert falconers from Hawkeye Falconry. Whether or not you have experienced falconry before, you will have your chance to handle these magnificent creatures, letting them fly from your gloved hand and returning to feed. It’s a profound experience to interact so closely with a hunting animal.
Private Falconry Experience
To begin your Private Falconry Experience there will be an introduction to Harris Hawks and our falconer will brief you on a 5000 year history of the ancient art of falconry. You will get the incredible opportunity to recall the hawk from the tree tops to your gloved hand under the guidance of our experience falconer. You will set off on a walk through the beautiful woodland Estate under the watchful eye of your hawk following you from tree to tree. To finish up your Falconry Experience you will be introduced to owls. As you fly the owl, your falconer will teach you about the species and their habitat.
