Fota Wildlife Park, Cork Reviews

  • Good place for a walk with the family. Range of animals is pretty limited, but I appreciate the laid back feel - like the animals are given a bit of space and not pushed to perform for the crowds. Sometimes you can get a good show (last time I was there, a pair of gibbons were giving a pretty amazing hooting performance), and sometimes you don't see much. Food is alright - a cafeteria at the entrance side and a fast food style place at the far end, with playgrounds at both locations. Especially good value if you have a yearly pass (which also gives access to Dublin Zoo).

  • Lovely place to go with kids, doing some excellent conservation work with tigers. Like the fact that there are some of the animals left wander, like wallabies and capybaras. It's not massive but definitely enough to keep you more than entertained for a few hours.

  • I think this is best place in Ireland to bring family it takes three hours to see everything for tourists and those travelling without a car there is even train service right to edge of the park parking is good and cafes and toilets dotted through journey around park its really healthy walk glorious on sunny day.I just thought lion was amazing hearing him roar from time to time can be heard around the park .The meerkats and lemurs basking in sun on November truly amazing watching them arms outstretched .Ya got to love it very emotional to see these creatures in wide open grounds they look very happy except salt eagle didn't like his cage .All in all lot of work went into having these animals on exhibit and 32 euro for two adults with baby free was good day out .The fluffy toys in gift shop real nice good quality decent price about 6 to 15 euro for average sized fluffy toys .Well done to owners and staff credit to whole of Ireland six star park amazing amazing amazing.

  • Whether you're in family, group of friends, tourists, or couple visiting Fota, you are sure to have a genuinely fantastic and enjoyable visit. Fota Wildlife Park offers visitors an up close place to come in contact with a diverse range of different animals. Very enjoyable walk around the park for all. Animals appear to be kept in good condition and are safe. There is a shop and small restaurant here, but prices can be high. Bringing some sort of packed lunch with you is recommended. Fota is easily accessible via car or via train from Cork City train station with a train stop on the route right outside an entrance to Fota.

  • Love Fota. Restaurants and toilet facilities could be improved a little- but improves every time we visit. Lovely to walk amongst the animals and the kids love it. Wrap up if it's cold or windy as is a little exposed but Looking forward to our next trip already!
