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. 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.
