    Very nice but not as great as I expected. But good way to spend afternoon. Make sure to pick day when without rain *which is a challenge in Ireland :)

    Aasian ja Afrikan eläimiä lähes luonnollisessa ympäristössä. Kiraffit, leijonat ja tiikerit.

    I don't think this needs an to be explained. I just love Dublin zoo. Got to see the elephants being fed, all was quiet as it was during the week and got to speak to the zoo keepers. Never gets old.

    Обширная территория и простор для животных. Московский зоопарк по сравнению с Дублинским - комуналка!

    You have to follow the map carefully to find some animals (red pandas, for example, are tough to locate) but this is a great zoo with lots of very photogenic animals, so bring your camera!

    Went for a family trip in 2003 and stayed in a bed and breakfast. Travelled to Trinity College and went to the Dublin Zoo for the day and saw this tiger climbing.

    Best for Gorilla's, Orangatans, Tigers, Elephants. The African plains area with Zebra, Giraffes and Rhinos etc. Need more Penguins tho. :-D Lion deceased, which was sad. :-(

    Takes a few hours and a lot of walking to get round. Most of the animal viewing areas are good but they use reflective glass which hinders shots of resting areas in some places.

    It's a nice place to visit at any age. Red panda and polar owl are the best!

    The T-Rex paddock was a bit of a snooze fest. Even after they brought in the goat.
