I found Fota to be very expensive considering the state of the country and the fact that people are finding it harder to have the money for days out. For two adults and one child who was just 4 it was 28 euros. Felt it was a bit steep especially if you have a big family. This is before you buy anything inside the park. We bought two coffees and a sandwich between us. It was a tenner. We enjoyed the park but the prices could be reduced. Still saying all this the park was fairly packed and you do need to supervise kids constantly in the play parks. I would say the huge crowds were due to a lot of people have family /seasonal tickets. My advice is bring a picnic as the coffee shop is a complete rip off 4.50 for one sandwich that was dry. I can understand why some people would be angry at the 3 euro charge on the way out and you have to have the exact coins. You certainly wouldn't be going every day if you didn't have a seasonal ticket. It is way too expensive. The animals are great fun and the monkeys were very funny but if you were there first time you might be expecting say Elephants or other animals but there aren't the same animals as Dublin zoo. It is enjoyable but the prices are over the top. The only thing I suppose is you can stay as long as you want.
