Dublin Zoo is Ireland’s most popular attraction where families can enjoy a day full of fun. Children and adults can learn all about wild animals, especially endangered animals, and animals they may have never even seen before.
The zoo is located in Phoenix Park in the heart of Dublin city and it welcomed almost one million visitors last year. This modern zoo is home to over 600 animals and covers 28 hectares. Education and conservation are combined at Dublin Zoo to ensure you and your family have an unforgettable experience every time you visit.
The zoo hosts events throughout the year that are both fun and educational. There are also workshops and camps that kids will really enjoy while on holidays. Events include the Zoo Book Club, Freddie Fyffes Great Gorilla Picnic Weekend, Young Zoologist Days, Teen Camps, McVities Penguin Family Days, and lots more.
