How long would you spend at World of Owls?

Most people spend roughly between an hour and 2 hours, but it also depends on the weather. People that come with a positive attitude tend to spend longer. The friendly staff will talk to you all day if you let them! Some people, especially in the summer bring picnics and spend the day there.

The primary aim of the “World of Owls” is to ensure the survival of owls throughout the world. “World of Owls” hopes to bring people, young and old, from all sections of the community to a beautiful location where they can be shown the need for conservation by one of nature’s most wonderful creatures. The education program of the “World of Owls” is designed to facilitate the National Curriculum’s key stages in order to help Northern Ireland’s younger generation learn about a range of topics including environmental and ecological issues. All the animals at World of Owls have been rescued, most of them from some horrid conditions, please come and visit our animals and prove that there are some people in the world that still care.
