We visited here on a Sunday it was easy to find and set in a nice quiet location. €13 for both adults and kids I thought maybe children should be cheaper it is the whole reason adults go and also most things in there are at a price and height limit so watch that. Other than that the place was... More

An amazing place plenty for everyone. The gardens were so well laid out, they were very pleasant and relaxing. The animals and birds a particular interest for my husband seemed well cared for and the keepers are able to explain about their care and welfare. It was nice that you could see a lot without too much walking. There were... More

This was my second trip, the last being 3 years ago and then I had no intentions of ever returning as I found there was little to entertain the wee ones only the playground. But my nephew hadn't been and was eager to go and at 11 I knew he'd get value. On the day I also took my nieces... More

Tayto Park is a strange one. Is it a zoo or an activity centre for kids?It plays out as neither. Its very expensive for a family day out and the rides inside you pay extra for on top of that. Restaurant is nice. Not impressed with the care of the bizarre range of animals.

I took my kids here during the summer holidays for the day. They were 3 and 8 and really enjoyed the day. I wish we had arrived when the park opened as we ended up missing a lot as the park was closing before we were finished. There are stuff to do here for all ages from the pony rides,... More

Myself and a friend visited here and only decided to go in at the slightly reduced student rate of €11 as we thought the park might be more suited to kids! The place is nicely set out and but you still need to pay for any of the rides on top of entrance fee!! In the shop we wanted to... More

Wasn't impressed with the animal housing, many of the animals there were displaying repetitive behaviour. Just another zoo :( The restaurant was mass catering and expensive.

Our grandkids had a great day out here, sky walk, zip line and rotator their favorites we then made our way to the animals which they enjoyed, I must say the Pony Ride at 3 euro for a very very short ride is Very Expensive and a TOTAL RIPOFF. We then finished a long day in the playground area.Staff were... More
