Dublin Zoo

Dublin zoo is one of the oldest and most popular zoos in the world, where conservation and education combine to provide a great experience.

Dublin Zoo is Ireland’s most popular family attraction, and welcomed over one million visitors last year. Located in Dublin’s Phoenix Park it spans over 28 hectares and is home to over 400 animals. Many are rare species and their survival in the wild is under threat so many of the animals are part of international breeding programmes for endangered species.

The zoo is a registered charity so you can rest assured that a trip here is money well spent as it contributes towards maintaining excellent standards and contributing toward conservation programmes.

There are many different events and talks on at the zoo daily throughout the year which can be very enjoyable and informative so make sure you do your research before attending so as to get the most out of your time there. You can easily spend a whole day at the zoo but it is recommended to give yourself at least 3 hours if on a time constraint.

If peckish you may wish to have something to eat at the Meerkat restaurant. Where you fill find something to suit all tastes. There are also several cafes and kiosk around the zoo serving delicious sandwiches, hot coffee, pizza, ice cream and more. There are also lawns and picnic tables around the zoo if you wish to bring your own food.

There are two gift shops at the zoo where you can get fascinating gifts from around the world. All profits go toward the upkeep of Dublin Zoo.

The zoo opens from 9.30am and closes at roughly 4.30pm throughout the year but times vary month to month so be sure to check before making your journey. Adult tickets cost €15.50 and a children’s ticket (3- 16*) costs €11.00. Children under 3 go free. There are also student, group and family tickets available.
