Birds of Prey at Trabolgan Holiday Village Co Cork

 

The Trabolgan Bird of Prey Educational Centre

Our Bird of Prey Centre holds a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence; come and learn about our stunning birds from around the world and you'll know why.

Located up on the golf course within the grounds of Trabolgan Holiday Village, we’re open daily from March to October. Our centre houses birds of prey from around the world and offers the chance to learn about birds of prey and raises awareness of indigenous species and the environmental issues they face. You’ll see falcons, hawks and owls – including the world’s largest type of owl and one of the smallest. Our visitors return year after year to chart the progress of our resident birds as well as meeting the many guest birds of prey we care for from time to time.

For a truly memorable souvenir of your time at Trabolgan, pose for photographs holding one of our birds in our photographic studio. ‘Lucy’, our Little Owl, loves having her photograph taken with younger guests, while our magnificent European Eagle Owl, Oscar, is a firm favourite for the more adventurous!
