Not as small as I thought! Good variety of animals, all appeared content and cared for. Can get quite close to many too. Zoo itself nice and clean, well laid out. Would recommend this, perhaps after a picnic in Phoenix Park!

I had not been to the zoo in Dublin in about 30 years. Things had changed.
Myself, wife and 2 kids had a great day out and the weather, although overcast stayed dry until 5.00pm. We saw animals that we did not know of before. The highlight for me was when the tiger came right up to the glass. The children loved the baby elephants and of course the many playgrounds around the zoo.
We spent 5 hours there and had a wonderful time.

Had a great day here when we travelled. Weather was a little unpredictable but anyway didn`t spoil what was a fun afternoon. Thought it was reasonably priced and the more of you go the cheaper it becomes.

This is a fantastic zoo. Don't miss it if you love zoos and are a visitor to Dublin. You will not be disappointed. Especially the baby Asian elephants. Plan on spending several hours here. Lots of clean restrooms and cafes.

The zoo was very busy but we still were able to see all the animals and there are now lots of play areas for kids which was a great addition. Have visited before and we always enjoy the experience. Long walk round but very relaxing in lovely surroundings.
