Our School Tour

A Tour Around The Walled Gardens

This year we stayed local when it came to our school tour.  The Play Area at the Inn at Dromoland provided a very child friendly experience of physical activity followed by a meal.  At the School Of Falconry at Dromoland  the children got the opportunity to hold harris hawks and watch them soar and swoop from an individual to the tree and back down again.  They also got to see owls and peregrine falcons and they were taken for a tour of the walled gardens by the  head gardener in Dromoland.  Finally we had a very enjoyable trip to the new O’Regan Park in Newmarket – On – Fergus.
