Dublin Zoo

  Phoenix Park, D8      (+353)(0)1 474 8900     more than a year ago
Escape the urban jungle and immerse yourself in the historic and beautiful Dublin Zoo. Only 3km from the City Centre in the vast Phoenix Park, the zoo’s 30 acres take you on a voyage of discovery from the fringes of the Arctic to the Plains of Africa via Indian Rainforest.

The Zoo has been transformed from a menagerie that mirrored its Victorian heritage of animals displayed as curiosities, to a place where the joy of learning about wildlife and conservation is at the heart of everything. 

Dublin Zoo is recognised as one of the most modern in Europe – and is increasingly an integral part of European Zoo breeding programmes. Crucially, though, it’s a great day out for all the family. 

Lions and tigers, gorillas, chimpanzees and orang-utans, rare monkeys, rhinos, hippos, giraffes and many more exotic and endangered species can all be seen. And there's also beautiful Asian elephant, Asha – the first of her species born on Irish soil. 

As well as the multitude of animals, children will love the pets corner, city farm and the safari train ride around the African Plains. Gift shops, a café and several picnic areas ensure sustenance, souvenirs and snack stops are available at every turn.

I spent hours walking around your vast zoo last week. Fortunately it was a dry sunny day and I enjoyed seeing all the animals and taking many photographs. I wish you had more non- reflective glass so visitors could see the animals better and take better photos.

lol its cool but a bit sad !!!
