New Centre Tours 2022!
Our work is seasonal, and we do not keep any animals in care for the purpose of public display. We are a hospital first and foremost, so the well-being of the animals is always our priority, and we do not keep the pups from returning to the wild any longer than they need to; this will lead to fluctuations in our numbers.
Experiences (1-3 Hours)

After visiting the seals, we recommend checking out Gallivanting Tours to explore the ancient beauty of Courtown Woods, a current hotspot for biodiversity, and one of the last remaining strongholds of An Dubh Tir, The Dark Country. Gallivanting is a state of mind, a place of learning, exploration and discovery!
On Lorraine’s walks, you’ll discover a whole new but also very old world. Discover the Earth worship of Celtic Ireland and the belief that our native Irish Trees have energies that can help us in our busy modern lifestyles. Foraging and Folklore that lets you follow in the footsteps of your ancestors.
All this and more awaits you on a Gallivanting Walk or Workshop!
