Phoenix Park, Dublin
Dublin Zoo, located in the Phoenix Park in the heart of Dublin city, is Ireland’s most popular family attraction and welcomed over one million visitors last year. As one of the world’s oldest and most popular zoos, the 28 hectare park is home to some 400 animals in an environment where education and conservation combine for an exciting and unforgettable experience.
Roam the African Savanna and spot giraffes, rhinos and zebras as you go. Hang out with the gorillas at the new Gorilla Rainforest, proudly sponsored by Freddy Fyffes, then travel through the Kaziranga Forest Trail to see the magnificent herd of Asian elephants. The Asian Forests is the newest habitat to open at Dublin Zoo where visitors can see Asian lions, Sumatran tigers and Sulawesi crested macaques!
There are plenty of amazing animals to discover including orang utans, hippos, bats, rare monkeys, meerkats, chimpanzees, red pandas and reptiles to name but a few!
Conservation is an important part of Dublin Zoo’s work, and as a registered charity the zoo relies on the generosity of friends and visitors to help fund the internationally acclaimed education, conservation and breeding programmes.
Dublin Zoo is easily accessible by car or public transport and open all year round from 9.30am daily so be sure to get there early and pack everything into one fun filled family day.
