Without a trip to Dublin Zoo at Phoenix Park, no family day would be complete in Dublin. It is a fun-filled, educational day trip for the entire family and a place to learn about wild creatures, especially endangered ones, and see them in a setting similar to their natural habitat. In their natural social groups, the animals at Dublin Zoo lead full lives. They are robust, able to reproduce, and capable of caring for their own young.

Things to do at Dublin Zoo:

  • As you wander the African savanna, look for giraffes, rhinos, and zebras.

After spending time with the gorillas in the brand-new Gorilla Rainforest, take the Kaziranga Forest Trail to observe the beautiful herd of Asian elephants. The most recent expansion at Dublin Zoo, The Asian Forest, offers visitors the chance to observe Sulawesi crested macaques, Sumatran tigers, and Asian lion kittens in their natural habitat.

  • The Kaziranga Forest Trail

Visit the gorgeous Asian rainforest at Dublin Zoo to see the breeding elephant herd. The Kaziranga Canopy Trail is a gorgeous natural setting designed with the requirements of the elephants in mind, complete with lakes, striking rock formations, and a waterfall encircled by a thick forest of trees and bamboo.

  • Orangutan Forest

The Bornean orangutans' native habitat in Borneo's tropical rainforests inspired The Orangutan Forest. The eleven trees, which range in height from 7 to 12 meters and promote the orangutans' natural climbing behavior, are the habitat's most impressive feature and can be admired by visitors.

  • Safari in Africa

Discover the African desert, where Southern white rhinos can be seen roaming the green savanna where they live. Giraffes, ostriches, and zebras may also be seen grazing on surrounding shrubs while roaming free.

  • A magical spot for kids is the Dublin Zoo.

Once inside, Victorian architecture, lavish landscaping, and exotic animal sound all contribute to the distinct exhilaration. Attend a Keeper Talk and go on the Nakuru Safari, which is highly recommended. Do not miss the City Farm, the World of Primates, the Fringes of the Arctic, or the World of Cats.

  • African Savannah in the Dublin Zoo

The 22 square meter area once part of Aras an Uachtarain has been transformed using Donegal sandstone and 6,000 cubic meters of sand to house creatures more commonly found in Kenya. Many of the larger African species may now coexist nearby in a setting that more closely resembles their natural habitat, thanks to the creation of the Savanna. Giraffes, zebras, ostriches, and the exotically named Scimitar Horned Oryx—apparently an endangered species already extinct in the wild—are among the animals found on the savanna.

  • Family Farm

The Family Farm is the tiniest in Ireland, and its fun-filled acre symbolizes an entire island dedicated to agriculture. Children can learn about agriculture in the classroom during their school visits and then go outside to experience it for themselves. The animals are the primary draw, including the new beef cow and calf, the ewe with her four young lambs, the weaner and Tamworth pigs, pygmy goats, geese, and chickens. Even a dairy cow is present, and visitors to the farm may watch her being milked every day. In addition to learning about the value of Irish hedgerows, kids will also have the chance to practice being little farmers by helping to plant their veggies.
