Dublin Zoo

Dublin Zoo

Estab­lished in 1830, this is the third-​oldest zoo in the world (after Lon­don and Paris), nes­tled in the midst of the city’s largest play­ground, the Phoenix Park, about 3km (2M) west of the city centre.

This 12-​hectare (30 acre) zoo pro­vides a nat­u­rally land­scaped habi­tat for more than 235 species of wild ani­mals and trop­i­cal birds. High­lights for young­sters include the Children’s Pets’ Cor­ner and a train ride around the zoo.
