Discover the world of the wild at Dublin Zoo.Visit the World of Primates and see massive gorillas and chimpanzees on the Monkey Islands. Dublin Zoo is all about fun, learning and conservation, there is so much to see and do. 
Spend some time in Dublin's City Farm or visit the Fringes of the Artic. Take a most amazing trip to Nakuru Safari in the African Plains housing giraffes, rhinos, cheetahs, zebras and chimpanzees. The more dangerous predators of these plains are cordoned-off in the World of Cats, where one can glimpse leopards, tigers and lions slinking through the tall grass.

Meet the latest arrival to Dublin Zoo- a Sumatran tiger cub, only ten months old. This little cub has been named "Ratna" and is one of the world's most endangered species. Born in Dublin Zoo last April, Ratna which means 'jewel' in Bahasa Indonesian can be seen at the Sumatran tiger exhibit.
The Birds section houses all sorts of winged beasties ranging from familiar sights to tropical rarities, while the reptile house is a writhing pit of cold-blooded scaly things, if you're into that sort of thing.
For a really special surprise for kids, arrange in advance to meet one of Dublin Zoo Keepers. Watch a keeper tend to the animals and feed them. Dublin Zoo Keepers will do their best to answer all your questions.
Dublin Zoo plays an important part in international conservation working in partnership with zoos worldwide.The Zoo participates in global breeding programmes which help to ensure the continued survival of endangered species.
