  • Went to see Wild Lights last night and it was such a lovely evening out! Much bigger than I expected and beautifully designed. Great for families! Just be aware you can't see the animals, just the lights.

  • There is no proper rooms for people to watch the animals .. i prefer if there was rooms inside the animals spaces to watch them all around .. and also air conditioned rooms .. they make a lot of money.. i enjoyed watching Gorillas in the closed room .. it was warm there .. I spent 30 minutes there watching what the Gorillas doing.. i would love if i could do this with wolves and other animals

  • Lovely zoo and the animals looked pretty happy. They were in herds and there were quite a few young animals so good to see. My kids loved it too and as we went during the week it was pretty quiet. Nice wee tea room outside too which is good to go in before you head in.

  • Went here when it was nice and quiet. The zoo was empty but the animals were out in force. I'd advise to try and go when it is that little bit quieter as there was still a bit of a crowd around the tigers and wolves

  • I really enjoyed the Zoo much more than expected. There were lots of information boards, and plenty of places to stop for a rest with a young child. Also play areas provided a break from viewing the animals and the two and half year old loved the play areas. Several places for refreshments also, highly recommend Dublin Zoo.
