The keepers of the IRISH RAPTOR RESEARCH CENTRE / EAGLES FLYING do not only have to look after birds of prey. Many other species live here. Some of them you can meet in our TOUCH-ZOO.

Here, visitors can get hands-on with guinea-pigs, pigs, rabbits, lambs, goats, donkeys, ferrets, and many more. Rosie the 350 kg pig gives kids a proper piggy-back ride, Grizzly, the raccoon, is a gifted pickpocket, Tui and Allan, the tame foxes make perfect (live) fur collars for fashion conscious ladies and Monty, the 4 meter Python, even makes a perfect scarf for at least 6 people at a time.

Even the ones who might not be interested in birds, will find a pet to delight in.

A visit to EAGLES FLYING is an excellent day out for all the family.
