Northern Ireland is a part of Great Britain and it is fantastic place to visit, both for hunting and sightseeing.
We have many good hunting districts in Northern Ireland offering hunting for sika stags - both in the non- guided hunting and hunting in the company of a gamekeeper. If you choose to hunt under the guidance of a gamekeeper it is also possible to combine the hunt with fallow buck and red stag. You will always find that Northern Ireland is a charming, very hospitable destination.
The coastline of Donegal is breathtakingly beautiful, and if you would like to combine hunting with a few days on the coast, we would be happy to arrange that.

The hunt take place in Colebrooke Park itself, and even though the hunt is in open countryside, the population of sika stags is so dense that all our hunters over the last many years have bagged a good sika stag, many of which have been medal winners. The hunt is carried out as a combination of lying in wait and stalking. Partly because there are many natural vantage points in the hilly...Read more
