Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Province of Munster / County Cork / Carrigtwohill / Fota Wildlife Park
Without a cage or fence in sight, Fota Wildlife Park houses dozens of species of mammals and birds from habitats as diverse as deserts, savannas, tropical forests, wetlands, and oceans. Designed with unobtrusive barriers, the zoo's paddocks allow visitors to observe wild animals in natural settings closely resembling their native habitats. To explore the park's 30 hectares (75 acres) in mere minutes, hop on a tour train, whcih circles the grounds and makes stops at the education center created with the youngest visitors in mind. For a more personal experience with the animals, follow the 2 km (1.2 mi) circular trail as you watch for ring-tailed lemurs and squirrel monkeys, which are allowed to roam freely and interact with visitors.

Fantastic trip even in grey weather, loads to see in well laid out park. Really enjoyed our time here, sadly reception mentioned a certain animal would be there that wasn't while we were (it's our favourite so would be good to notify those on the gate if there are absences or changes so we could've been informed before paying for the tickets)
It was very good when we visited earlier. Still there is a lot to enjoy and explore. Better check the climate before you go. There are restrictions on some places due to corona.
