What is the Dublin Zoo?

The Dublin Zoo

The Dublin Zoo is one of the city's most popular attractions. The zoo has been around since 1830 and was originally supplied with animals from the London Zoo. Today the Dublin Zoo includes thirty acres of African plains featuring lions, rhinos, hipos, chimpanzees, zebras and giraffes.

The Dublin Zoo has a variety of different scheduled events you can go to. Some of the most popular scheduled events at the zoo include the Sea Lion Splash, Tiger Talk and Chimpanzee Chat, all of which take place once daily during the early afternoon hours. There are still a variety of exhibitions set up at the zoo that date back to its beginnings in the 1800's. The Dublin Zoo is also home to number of endangered species that can't be seen in many other places.

The Dublin zoo is open seven days a week with limited hours on Sunday. The zoo offers discounted tickets for children and families.

Note: The Zoo's box office closes one hour before the Zoo itself, so get there early to make sure you get in.
