    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!

    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.
