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 

Your Private Falconry Experience will begin with an introduction to the Hawk you are about to fly.

Our falconer will brief you on a 5000 year history of the ancient art of falconry.

You will set off on a walk as your hawk follows you, watching your every move.

Your falconer will teach you how to recall the hawk from the tree tops to your gloved hand and send him back to the trees again.

During the walk, your falconer will work with you to ensure you get some amazing photo and video opportunities as you call the hawk several times to your gloved hand.

To finish up your falconry experience you will be introduced to one or possibly two of our owls.

As you fly the owl, your falconer will teach you about the species and their habitat.

The owls are super cute, very photogenic and they do love an owl selfie!

Tennis

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.

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
