Fota Wildlife Park, Cork Reviews
My kids and I love this place! You have some play grounds for kids(at the entrance play ground with sand) , places to eat (not extraordinary choice though but you will be able to survive), lots of fresh air and mini roads to walk. As it’s open place it’s very windy, so better to have some warm clothes. We really like “tropical house” with butterflies, fishes, snakes and turtles! Very warm inside but beautiful. Little train is circulating every 25-30 min. We’re nice view when it’s feeding time.
Fantastic place, a great day out with the kids. Costs a bit and extra for parking, best to go on a sunny day as the animals come out to play more. Much nicer than a Zoo as the animals have lots of space. Kangaroos just hop all around the park. All in all a wonderful place and great day out.
Had a great time in Fota last summer. Reasonable price for parking, and for entry into the grounds. Nice big area to walk around. It was really nice seeing some of the animals that were just let to roam freely around the park. Some great exhibits. I'd definitely recommend try to catch some of them during feeding time!
Fota is a must visit if you are in Cork, especially with children. It is slightly expensive but offers memberships at reasonable rates which are great if you are a regular visitor. The animals in Fota really do have much more freedom than in a zoo. The layout is also excellent, taking you on a lovely walk around the grounds with something to see at every corner. There is a lovely café and souvenir shop at the entrance, as well as a great picnic area and restaurant at the far end of the complex. Definitely worth it on a hot summer's day!
This is a fantastic wildlife park! Lots to do, it's very relaxed and the animals all have plenty of space to roam. We also did the behind the scenes tour which I would highly recommend. We got to hand feed penguins, pelicans, monkeys and a rhino!
