Ireland is most definitely a place where nature is comfortably at one with itself and the people who live here, are most definitely at one with nature and the National Bird of Prey Centre here at Russborough House is the embodiment of that statement. The team here at the centre really are hands on and have created something rather special not only for budding bird fans, but also for people who don’t know a lot of birds. With species from all over the globe, not only can you visit their aviaries and read all about that particular species, you can get up close and personal by taking a hawk walk through the spectacular surroundings of Russboroughs parkland. Tom and Carol, the management here along with their very experienced team, really do know their stuff and we would like to give them a really huge Top 100 thumbs up!
