We spent a full day just taking in this amazing zoo. The paths are well maintained and the zoo is spacious and well laid out. There are plenty of resting spots and plenty to keep the kids entertained.

Really enjoyed strolling around the Dublin zoo. I was able to get a bus out from central Dublin without difficulty, just a bit of research. Nice selection of animals on exhibit. It was a drizzly day so very uncrowded.

Spent around 4 hours walking around the various exhibits.Impressed by the standard of the animal enclosures,I think we saw just about every species in the zoo,and the landscaping is worth a visit on it's own.Keepers were informative too. A good value day out.

There is no train or other form of transport available inside the grounds of the zoo. Most of the zoo is wheelchair accessible.

Ashtown House is a nice spot not too far from zoo and free parking but for a special occasion try the Carlton Hotel on the sword road or Gourmet Kitchen in Santry again free parking and a short distance from the zoo
