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.

 

1 hour Hawk Walk

Take our hawk walk for hands on experience of flying, handling and feeding a trained hawk.  You will be taken through the grounds where we will teach you about the natural instincts, behaviour, habitat, training and history of these magnificent birds.  A trained hawk will follow on through the trees where you will have the opportunity to call him to your gloved fist.

 

I hour Owl encounter

During the 1 hour owl encounter, you will get the opportunity to handle, fly and feed one of our owls.  A professional falconer will teach you about the Owls’ secretive world, while one or more Owls fly free around the group.  Camera is a must! 

Family of 4 €100, each person thereafter €20 OR  €30 per person, minimum 2 people.

 

Pre booking is required enquire on 051-382000 and ask for guest relations.

 

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 

Mapped Walks

Take a map and a complimentary rain mac (as the scouts say “be prepared”!) and head off on one of our local walks. 

Cycling

For a leisurely ride around the estate take one of our bikes and explore the Deerpark or St. Ita’s trails found on our walking maps.  Enquire at our guest relations desk. (Only available fromm June - Oct)

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.
