“Lovely little zoo”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Great little zoo, well worth a visit. A few too many birds maybe, but monkeys and apes are there to see. Lots of trees mean plenty of shade so doesn't get too hot walking around.

“Great for young kids”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Great little trip,out for younger children, plenty for them to see and do. Get very close to the birds and animals, some wallabies run around freely so it's great for the little ones

The zoo provides some little push cars for little ones to ride which is great fun and means you can leave the buggy behind

It's not a huge zoo, and you get round it in a couple of hours, so ideal visit with younger kids - don't think it would hold much interest for kids over 10 years or so

There is loads and loads of shade from trees as you walk through, which makes it very pleasant indeed

It's a little expensive at €16 for adults (under threes go in for free) but worth it in my opinion

The little coffee hut was very reasonable and served nice coffee, also a restaurant serving some decent pizzas , not ridiculously expensive, think we paid about €8 for a pizza

Well worth a visit

“Value day out”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Took my two teenagers and had a brilliant time. Primate Island is wonderful & I could have spent much longer sitting & watching. A prairie dog had escaped, but staff were not concerened "He does that, he will go home". Peacocks scavenging food at the cafe, brilliant. No animal seemed stressed and all seemed content. Got a 10% discount booking at the hotel on a 16 Euro ticket per adult, well worth it.

“Wonderful day out”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Lovely zoo. Not very big but with three small children tagging along and with the heat I wouldn't want a whole day out. Took about two hours to get around. Snack bar inside perfect for ice cream. Restaurant located out front but prices seemed extravagant. Lots of different birds. Different varieties of monkeys too some very loud. Nice stroll around and toilets located inside. All in all fab day out.

“Fab place to visit”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Wonderful day out well worth the trip. Zoo itself not massive but with three small kids in tow I wouldn't want it to be an all day thing. Took us just over 2hours to go around. Small cafe area inside perfect for ice cream. Restaurant out front although prices seened a bit much. Toilet facilities inside. Lots of birds, some beautiful monkey's and some very noisy monkeys. All in all a lovely place to go.
