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. Put Fota Wildlife Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Carrigtwohill itinerary maker site .

First time being here today and I have to say it was amazing. ten times better than Dublin zoo. Seeing the giraffes and other animals roam is so great . Really loved it would go back again
Fota never fails to amazing. We could go there 7 days a week and still be entertained. And the conservation work carried out makes it even more special. Worth every penny
