About Us

The Northern Ireland School of Falconry was opened in 2000 by John Carmichael and is based near Kells in County Antrim.

We work with a large selection of birds of prey, including eagles, vultures, falcons, owls and hawks.


"The Eagle" by Lord Alfred Tennyson


He clasps the crag with crooked hands;

Close to the sun in lonely lands,

Ringed with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;

He watches from his mountain walls,

And like a thunderbolt he falls.
