Falconry - The Ancient Sport of Kings

At Faithlegg we offer you a Bird of Prey experience of a lifetime offering a unique opportunity to personally fly, handle, feed and interact with some of the world's most amazing Birds of Prey.

Falconry Experience

Duration 1 hour €70 for 1 person €30 per person extra

We will demonstrate the Ancient Art of Falconry. Watch our Hawks demonstrate their hunting skills by catching food out of the air and witness a simulated rabbit hunt where our Hawk will chase and catch the dummy bunny and the falconer will demonstrate the transfer from the dummy bunny. Enjoy a casual walk as our Hawk follows on while he flies to your gloved fist to feed and returns to the trees. Get to handle one of our Owls while the Falconer teaches you about the species. Fantastic photo opportunities throughout the experience.

Hawk Walk

Duration 40 min €60 for 1 person €20 per person extra

Get the opportunity to walk with one of our Hawks while calling the Hawk from the trees to your gloved fist to feed. To finish you get to handle one of our owls. Fantastic photo opportunities throughout the experience.

Tennis

We have 2 tennis courts are located just beyond the golf clubhouse. Rackets and balls are available from the pro shop but pre booking is required. Call extension 2587 for bookings

Boules (Or Petanque as they call it in France)

The goal is to throw hollow metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet (literally "piglet") while standing inside a circle with both feet on the ground. The game is normally played on hard dirt or gravel but we recommend our back gardens preferably over a cold drink of something at the bar. Boules sets are available at the Guest Relations Desk.

Historical Walks

Enjoy a leisurely stroll around the local area and take in the breath-taking views from the top of the Minaun Hill with our local historians, Andrew & Deena. Return to the hotel for coffee and homemade scones and to learn more about the history of Faithlegg. A very social and informative way to spend 2.5 to 3 hours of your break in our beautiful location teeming with history. If you’d like to join the ‘Walk & Talk’, please sign -up in advance with Guest Relations or Reception. A charge of €15 per person applies

Cycling

Children’s Playground

We have a children's playground on site for you to enjoy a relaxing coffee while your kids can play. Located at the rear of the hotel in the gardens, the playground is the ideal place for your children to play in a safe environment with lots of fun to be had.
