We went there on a cold day and it was still a good place to visit. There is plenty to see. Zoo well maintained and easy to navigate around. Plenty of refreshment stops if required. Easy to get to if using the Dublin Tour bus.

Whether you get a good day weather wise or not this is a great day out. As you would expect from a top international zoo a brilliant array of animals who are all well looked after

Haven't been to the zoo in years was a nice refresher going and seeing how much the park has expanded with the enclosures. Great day out we did the zoo in 4 hours that was taking our time to make sure we didn't miss anything.

The zoo is everything it says it is and turning every corner gets a WOW. The only downside is the food/restaurant outlets. This is the third time I have been and was hoping there was an improvement. Why does everyone think htat everyone wants to eat burgers and chips? or pizza. Picnic best option - there is nothing healthy anywhere.... More

We went in November and expected to not see much of anything. My son always wants to go to the zoo, so we made the trek. It is a wonderful zoo with polite staff that are happy to interact. We saw all the animals - they have indoor and outdoor viewing areas, so there were no issues. We really loved... More

Dublin zoo is a trip we make quite often. We have an annual family pass and we get great value for money. Our 4 year old son is constantly entertained weather it be by the animals of the play areas they have scattered through the zoo. We'll worth a visit.

We have visited Dublin Zoo a couple of times this year and we never tire of it. There are lovely walks around it and the variety of animals are perfect for our needs. Plenty of picnic tables and a food area which has a lot of local wildlife 😂 a must stop when in Dublin.
