Try something new this weekend with a Hawkeye School of Falconry experience 🙌  Even before recorded history, our ancestors flew birds of prey. From the Steppes of Asia, to medieval Europe, from five thousand years ago to the present day, Falconry has become a way of life for Falconers around the world. Whether or not you have experienced Falconry before, you will get a chance to handle these magnificent creatures, letting them fly from your gloved hand and returning to feed. It is a profound experience to interact so closely with a hunting animal.  www.outdoorkilkenny.ie  #outdoorkilkenny #visitkilkenny #lovekilkenny #hawkeye #moretoexplore #keepdiscovering
Few golf courses can boast with a horse racing track as a backdrop… Except Gowran Park Golf and Race Course 🏌️‍♂️  Playing more than 7,000 yards from the back tees, Gowran Park is a parkland golf course five holes that run directly through the track, while the other holes take a golfer through a scenic journey through the adjacent woodland. Have you ever played here? ⛳️  📸 @gowranpark  Visit www.outdoorkilkenny.ie
