Falconry at Luttrellstown Castle Resort

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 worshipped as a god, valued as a hunting partner or used as a corporate or heraldic symbol, falcons have fascinated humans for millennia.
