  • Dublin Zoo is a brilliant place to go with family and friends. The customer service is very good with happy welcoming people greeting you at the entrance. The animals are kept in very good condition and when I was there on a warm day very active and entertained. The facilities are top notch with rest rooms and benches every couple of steps with playgrounds and cafes/vending machines thrown in there too. I would highly recommend Dublin Zoo for a visit.

  • Wonderful day. Take a whole day to enjoy. Lots of rest places and interest places for kids. Nice descriptions of animals in each enclosure. Good photo opportunities. Animals appeared happy and engaged. Highly recommended for families. Good food selection at relatively competitive prices. Helpful staff.

  • Excellent zoo! Animals are very comfortable looking and were on great form. Got talking to a staff member and they clearly love the animals there. Well worth a visit! I will be going back. Loved it!!

  • Dublin Zoo today is a far better zoo than it was when I was a kid. It’s great to see the animals in much bigger enclosures. There are plenty of viewing windows for the kids to get really close to the animals. I’ve fount the staff to be very knowledgeable and friendly. They’re only too happy to answer any questions you might have. Parking is great, it can be very busy but it you go at non busy times it’s great. A great historic zoo their continually improving.

  • Great day out!! Lots of walking but that added to it. Didn't feel rushed at all which was great took our time going through the entire zoo. In the end we were there 3 to 4 hours which was great. Really got our money worth. You can just tell the animals are treated so well and is amazing to see.
