Located in Phoenix Park, Dublin Zoo is Ireland’s biggest family attraction, seeing over one million visitors a year. Founded in 1831 and since then has expanded to a beautiful, 28 hectare zoo full of caring professionals devote their lives to the welfare and care of animals and to understand their needs. This zoo is home to over 400 rare, exotic and endangered animals from all around the world.
A day exploring the Phoenix Park is a perfect way for the children to spend energy. Phoenix Park is the largest enclosed public park in any capital in Europe and also home to a wild deer herd that don’t mind visitors but prefer to be in their own company, so it is advised not to disturb them. The park is also home to one of Ireland’s favourite people, Micheal D Higggins, our President. If you’re lucky enough you might catch him outside with his wife Sabina and two Bernese Mountain Dogs, Bród and Misneach.
