Guaranteed to Delight

One of Ireland’s Top Ten Visitor Attractions and a leading tourism, wildlife and conservation centre, Fota Wildlife Park is an attraction that’s guaranteed to delight every member of your family.

A 100-acre (40 ha) wildlife park located on Fota Island, just a 40-minute drive from Youghal, the attraction is a not-for-profit charity and home to nearly 30 mammal and 50 bird species. Your family will love how it’s everything an ordinary zoo isn’t! Wherever possible the Park has chosen animals that thrive in a free-range environment – allowing them to roam and mix with other species as well as with human visitors. You’ll walk among ring-tailed lemurs and wallabies, and see everything from giraffe, bison and red pandas to tapirs, siamang gibbons and lots more.
