About Falconry

Falconry is an art that originated in the east circa 400AD. It has since proceeded westward throughout Europe. The Falcon, a powerful, beautiful and charismatic predator is the fastest animal in the world. Whether loved, hated or feared, whether worshiped as a god, valued as a hunting partner or used as a corporate or heraldic symbol, falcons have fascinated humans for millennia. Read more

Welcome to Dublin Falconry

School of Education and Conservation

Trevor Roche

I have been involved in Falconry since I was Eight years old. My passion for flying, hunting and displaying Birds of Prey is everlasting. I have flown many species of Hawks, Falcons and Owls and my life-long dream of Falconry has now become a reality.

I was granted a Zoo license in 2013, and I strive to make Dublin Falconry a centre of excellence for the art of Falconry. Thrilling and educational visits are a guarantee at my flying displays and I never cut corners when it comes to customer service.

The Dublin Falconry facility at Courtlough is a place for young and old alike to enjoy a fabulous day close to nature and our feathered friends. This year, Dublin falconry will be home to thirty Owls, Falcons and Hawks by the end of the breeding season.

I look forward to seeing you all in the comming season and enjoy my new site.
