Located in Ashbourne, Co. Meath and just 30 minutes from Dublin is Ireland’s only theme park and zoo, Tayto Park. With over 100 attractions to experience and enjoy, there is something for everyone; young, old and in between. For the thrill seekers, the Cu Chulainn, Ireland’s first rollercoaster and Europe’s first wooden rollercoaster with an inversion, is sure to get your adrenaline flowing. But that’s not all, there are a huge variety of attractions, 100+ in total. Challenge yourself high in the sky on the Extreme Climbing Walls or Sky Walk, let the kids explore our Playground, Steam Train Express or our Mini Ferris Wheel or take the Tayto Factory Tour, free with entry, and find out the history behind Tayto. And for those who don’t need an increased heart rate to have a good time, enjoy a laid-back stroll through our zoo, where you can interact with the exceptional animal collection, from the mischievous meerkats to the largest of the big cats, the amur tiger.

Full price but almost no rides for my daughter who stands at 108cm. Really disappointed. Staff lack care or compassion. Won't be returning. Cheaper to fly to Alton Towers. Argentinan food was good,although the plate somewhat emptiful. Steak and chicken well seasoned. Menu didn't explain...More

As far as I know the wristbands you can go on the rides as many times as you want so if the older kids were going on the bigger rides at least the younger kids could go on small rides again instead waiting around.

2 adults no problem...2 big rides are class;rest of the bigger ones are grand-but typical fairground spinny round things. Shows are good-birds of prey and fossets circus. Free bag of tayto cheese n onion when leaving!
