  • Annual membership, pizza was gorgeous. Going off season was lovely, children got to see more animals because the park was that little bit quieter. No access with buggy to changing facility in the middle of the park near the train pick up, because the step and lip up to the door is too high. It's not an option for a parent on their own with children.

  • Fantastic!!! I cannot say enough great things about this park! The animals have spacious and very well maintained habitats. They practically roam around without borders. So many cheetahs! Giraffes of many colors! The highlight of my trip so far!

  • This is an incredible place to spend a day with the family. The layout of the park is very good and they are continuously improving it year on year. It is great how close you can get to the animals and particularly the big cats which can be within inches of you but behind safety glass. There are even some animals that roam free around the park. This is a place that I will visit again and again and highly recommend it.

  • Great to keep children occupied for half a day. Highlight today was the tropical house. Warm refuge to warm up half way through a cold morning and plenty of interesting tropical animals, butterflies and fish. Dublin Zoo annual pass holders get to go for free.

  • Excellent day out. Very good and friendly staff. Good restaurants. Good facilities. Lovely day for everyone from adults to kids.
