Archery

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.

Falconry

There is some question as to whether the term ‘Sport of Kings’ refers to Falconry or to Horse riding. The good news is, we offer both at Mount Juliet. 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.

 Falconry Experience

Duration: 90 mins  Cost: €100 for 1 person & €50 per person extra

 Our Falconry Experience includes a Simulated Hunt, Hawk Walk and an Owl Encounter. You will experience the Ancient Art of Falconry as our Hawks demonstrate their aerial hunting skills by snatching food out of the air. There is a simulated rabbit hunt where the Hawks will chase and catch a dummy rabbit and the falconer will demonstrate the transfer from the dummy rabbit. The Hawk Walk includes a brief introduction into the Art of Falconry and the Harris Hawk you will fly. You will learn how to recall the Hawk from the trees. During the Hawk Walk with the falconer, you will take over the flying of the Hawk and calling the Hawk to your gloved fist. The experience will finish with a brief Owl Encounter.
