    Enjoyable day out but car parking can be a problem.

    One of the best Zoo's in Dublin. There has been done real effort here to build nourishing animal specific enclosures. A great day out for children and adults alike.

    Loved Dublin Zoo. Spent 3 hours walking round taking pics. Even enjoyed eating breakfast at a table beside the Meerkat in the Meerkat Restaurant.

    Have lunch outside of zoo. Avoid restaurant and fast food there. Same goes for coffee.

    It's totally walkable and the distance between different animals is low. It's super easy to spot an animal. Also as of 2015 autumn you can see young of animals like lion or elephant.

    Nice zoo. Not too large, you only need a few hours. Great animals, especially the snow leopard. Worth a visit even though it's a bit further from the centre. Recommended.

    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 :)

    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.

    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!

    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.

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