Excellent Experience - 10/10

Excellent experience @ Seal Rescue Courtown, Wexford. Really engaging and informative, can't speak highly enough about our two tour guides on the day - Lewis & Rob, both were really friendly, informed and great fun!

10/10 would recommend.

Came here with my tour group. We all found it very educational and loved feeding the seals. I would highly recommend a visit, if in the area.

Great cause and an enjoyable experience
Aug 2021
This isn't a cheap hour to spend, especially with a family but we would say it's worth it. I went with my son (4) to a morning tour. The guides were great, very friendly and really knowledgeable. They clearly love what they do. My son loved pitching in to get the feed ready and throwing it to the seals at feeding time. Our guide did mention that the seals can be more playful in the afternoon so that's something to consider when booking. Also recommend wearing wellies.

I would highly recommend a visit to Seal Rescue Ireland to any and all animal lovers. It is a really enjoyable experience. The educational talk was interesting and engaging. Great to see how the welfare of the seals is the number one priority. Thanks to Megan in particular!

For all ages!

We pre-booked a tour here as I love seals. There was a mother & daughter & another couple & everyone was socially distanced.
The guides were so clearly happy in their jobs & very knowledgeable about everything seal-related.
We had an educational talk about seals, the Irish coast, their work & the environment. Then we got a detailed tour & talk around the seal cub ICU & seal cub bays. Then we got to help feed a couple of seal Cubs in their pool. I’m probably getting all the terminology wrong as I was so enamoured with the seal Cubs that I couldn’t take it all in!
They do amazing work & I think that anyone aged 5-100 would love a trip here.

Highly recommend, kids had a ball learning about the seals and getting to feed them. Fun and educational. Kids even insisted on doing a beach clean up to help the seals, staying nearby, disgusted to say there was plenty of litter in the beach for them to pick up...

We did the Seal Feed and Enrichment Experience today, and it was absolutely amazing! Staff super friendly and knowledgeable. We loved that they prioritized the safety and well-being of the seals over everything else. Highly recommended.

Great day at seal rescue Ireland
Jun 2021
I had an excellent day at the Seal Rescue Ireland. I did the Seal Feed and Enrichment Experience, which meant being able to see the seals up close and being able to feed them. It was fantastic, but also informative, as we learned about conservation and how to help seals/ get involved. The guides were informed and chatty, and I would highly recommend this experience to anyone.
