Every once in a while you find that perfect experience that helps everyone, young and old, connect with a destination. On our recent trip to Ireland, it was the Falconry at Ashford Castle that delighted our whole group! We had 16 family members ranging from 1 to 70 years of age, so finding activities that kept both the adults and the children engaged was challenging.
However, with a castle as a backdrop, gorgeous wooded grounds, thoughtful instruction and, of course, the stunning birds, this experience was outstanding!
From the moment that you drive up to the Ashford Castle, you know you’re in a special place. Dating back to 1228, the castle overlooks a beautiful lake, making it a perfect setting for the sport of kings. Initially, I was concerned that it wouldn’t be appropriate to bring the little ones (ages 1 and 4 years), but it worked out wonderfully.
