No trip to Dublin would be complete without a visit to its historic and beautiful Zoo. Close to the City in the vast Phoenix Park, a wander around the 60 acres will take you on a voyage from the fringes of the Artic, to the Plains of Africa, via the Indian Rainforest.
Today, Dublin Zoo is recognised as one of the most modern zoos in Europe, playing an important part in European Zoo breeding programmes. But it's also a great day out for all! See elephants, tigers, gorillas, chimpanzees, and orang-utans, rare monkeys, rhinos, hippos, giraffes, and many more exotic and endangered species.
Children will love the pets' corner, the unique Meerkat restaurant, City farm, and the Nakuru safari ride around the African Plains.
