Description

Dublin Zoo is the largest zoo in Ireland and one of Dublin's most popular attractions. It has been open since 1831 and, like most zoo's around the world, now concentrates on conservation and education.

Located in the Phoenix Park in the heart of Dublin city, Dublin Zoo is one of Ireland’s most popular family attractions.

It has been transformed in recent decades into a 28 hectare park of gardens, lakes and wonderful natural habitats for over 400 animals. 

The site is huge and allows the animals plenty of room to roam. It is divided into different areas; Family Farm, Kaziranga Forest Tail, Gorilla Rainforest, House of Reptiles, the Penguin Habitat, Asian Forests and South American House.

With the exception of the African Savanna, where you can see zebra, giraffs, rhino's and chimps, there is not much distance between them and it is easy to walk around with a stroller.

As part of their educational mandate they offer school programmes, camps and workshops where children can develop a greter appreciatoon of wildlife.

There are some really nice play areas where the kids can run around and daily feeds and talks throughout the day. Check their website for details.

There are plenty of places for a nice picnic but you can get hot food too.

It is hard to leave through the Zoo shop without picking up a cuddly memento!

Just been to Zooarisic Park the new dinosaur section. Would fully recommend. It's just brilliant. Still the zoo is one of the best days out.

I love the zoo, can be expensive with a big family so bring your own picnic, parking is my only problem so we take the bus, lots of places for kids to play all around and a new playbarn too, come early and spend the day here

It is what it is and always a family favourite. Parking is always difficult so if planning a day out I'd recommend getting there early.
