Visited here one random week day and it was a lovely day out. Plenty to see and enjoyable for people for all ages. Added bonus - You can enjoy a stroll around the Phoenix park after if you feel up to it.

Randomly walked into the Zoo while having a Sunday stroll around the Phoenix Park. Loved it! The time flew by. Loved the layout and seen so so many animals. The African Plains were just amazing. Love seeing animals in large open enclosures.

I love this zoo, it’s got a lot to offer with many varied animals. Like all zoos it is always better in Summer than Winter months. Takes around 6 hours to go through if taking a leisurely pace or with children. Staff are always friendly...More
