Lovely zoo with a baby rhino! Fabulous large layout and plenty to see. It was a sunny winters day so weather was great - African Savannah Area is a must see, also saw orang utangs and big cats. Would definitely recommend if you like your wildlife.

Visited the zoo just after the new year. What I did notice was this zoo is very clean, and wasnt too busy on the day we visited. however some enclosures did look very run down and in need of desperate renovation.

Dublin zoo was great. From monkeys to lions to sea lions which were my favourite. You have to visit here for sure. Suitable for all ages. Nice day out. Has a nice cafe and you can sit and watch the meerkats while sipping your coffee they are so cute and funny. All in all a great day out

Im not a fan of Zoos but this was a good day out. Lots of animals and attractions and a good days worth of attraction. The Orangutans were worth seeing and entertained in style.

Visited with my partner on a random trip. Zoo was quiet due to time of year, plenty to see, helpful and knowledgeable staff and overall, a great day out!

We been in there in December, but we caught a good weather! The zoo is really nice and everything is kept in the right way! The sweetness of the animals was the Red panda, when you will see, you will fall in love with him!
