Dublin Zoo Tours

star-5
9 Reviews
Dublin Zoo
A family favorite, the 69-acre (28-hectare) Dublin Zoo has been around since 1831. Over 400 animals from about 100 different species can be seen across its various sections. In the African Savanna, rhinos, zebras, giraffes, and ostriches roam, while the Asian Forests exhibit is home to lions, snow leopards, and crested black macaques.

The Basics
Dublin Zoo is a common stop on hop-on hop-off bus tours of Dublin. Some Dublin sightseeing passes also grant free entry to the zoo. Once inside, visitors typically explore the zoo independently, making their way around the various habitats with the aid of a map. 

Free keeper talks and feedings take place daily from March through September, and on weekends from October through February. Special workshops, covering topics such as dinosaurs and bird-watching, also take place at the zoo and should be booked in advance. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Dublin Zoo is a must for families, with lots of kid-friendly activities available. 
  • Cafés, snack kiosks, and a restaurant can be found within the zoo’s grounds. Alternatively, pack a picnic to enjoy on the lawns or at picnic tables.
  • Bring rain gear as much of the zoo is unsheltered and Dublin’s weather can be unpredictable.
  • The majority of the zoo is wheelchair-accessible. 

How to Get There
Dublin Zoo is situated in Phoenix Park. The nearest Luas tram stop is Heuston Station (Red Line), which is a 15-minute walk away, and many Dublin bus lines also stop nearby. 

When to Get There 
Dublin Zoo is busiest on sunny summer weekends. Consider booking tickets online to avoid waiting around at the ticket booth, or arrive early in the morning before lines form. 

Exploring Phoenix Park
If you have any energy left after visiting Dublin Zoo, take some time to stroll around Phoenix Park. One of Europe’s largest urban parks, this vast grassy expanse contains the 203-foot-tall (62-meter-tall) Wellington Monument, Áras an Uachtaráin (the residence of the President of Ireland), the Victorian-era People’s Flower Gardens, and a free-roaming herd of wild deer.

Address: Phoenix Park, Dublin, Ireland
