To explore diverse animal habitats from the fringes of the Arctic to the African plains, visit Dublin Zoo. Founded in 1831, the zoo covers nearly 30 hectares (70 acres) and houses about 100 different species of animals. Boasting a renowned lion-breeding program, which dates back to the middle of the 19th century, the zoo plays an important role in the global efforts to conserve the world's endangered and threatened species. You can visit hundreds of animals spread across eight different habitats housing birds, bats, monkeys, crocodiles, tigers, turtles, and giraffes. Be sure to look in on the zoo's family farm, designed to teach visitors about modern Irish farming.

  • I went to the zoo yesterday and boy it was brilliant. I saw and heard many brilliant things that you’d have to be there to understand how extraordinary it was. Been coming here since I was a child...

  • The festival of Lights in Dublin Zoo was Outstanding. A++++ It was a beautiful night, perfect walking and enjoying the Zoo lights at night. Excellent value and would go again. All Staff very friendly and helpful. It was a fabulous end to a not so nice almost 2 years of restrictions and tragedy.
  • I have always loved this place, my parents took me here as a child and I take my children here now too. Changed so much over the years and each time it changed was definitely making the experience better, more fun and educational. Keep it up guys you're nailing it!! Thank you for all the wonderful memories
