Giraffes, monkeys and Larry the lemur are among over ninety species that inhabit this 'free range' menagerie. Set on an island in Cork harbour, the Park opened in 1983 and, over the years, has been actively involved in many international conservation programmes. Watch the world's fastest animals sprint for their food at Ireland's only Cheetah Run, and see indigenous creatures - such as bats, birds and rabbits - in their natural habitat. A Tour Train, restaurant, playgrounds, gift shop and Giant Giraffe Slide complete the family fun day out. Find Fota 10km east of Cork.
