Fota Wildlife Park, Cork Reviews

  • Staff at the zoo is really friendly and helpful. Staff at the garden is a different story. Garden through spring and summer time is opened until 5pm everyday, if anyone comes at 4.45pm to visit the garden then he gets a polite but firm NO. Main gate gets closed at 6.30pm the latest. If anyone leaves at 6.40pm or more, he could face closed gate or a strong argument with the gatekeeper. Parking fees are 3 euros. The machine only accepts 50cts, 1e, 2e coins.

  • A lovely day out for the family! There's a great selection of animals to see at Fota wildlife park. It's really well run and so nice to see the animals are cared for really well, and have lots of space to live in. There's a restaurant at one side of the park and a cafe at the other. There's plenty of benches everywhere so we enjoyed a picnic in the sunshine. We got the train half way around the park which our toddler loved!

  • Brilliant enclosures with lots of enrichment and natural elements for the animals to feel as much at home as they possibly can. Seems like they're putting a lot work into expanding to their collection. Really enjoyed our visit after coming here many years ago.

  • Great experience for all the family. It has been expanded since our last visit and there is even more to see here than before. Make sure you get to see the Cheetahs being fed, as it is amazing way they have figured out to keep them fit and active. There is plenty of places to stop and eat around the park and there is a vending machine to get food for the ducks at the lake.

  • Really enjoyed Fota, great day out for the family. There is loads of space to walk around and see the animals. Many of the animals are free roaming which is fun and exciting for kids. As well as that there are a few places to get food, playgrounds etc and a train that brings you around the park which is reasonably priced (2euro return). The tropical house is amazing, overall great place. We drove from Dublin and was worth it, would visit again. 😁
