Fota Wildlife Park, County Cork
A trip to Fota Wildlife Park, one of Europe's most modern wildlife parks, is thoroughly enjoyable as well as being educational too.The Park is set on 70 acres on the scenic Fota Island in the heart of Cork Harbour, only fifteen minutes from Cork City.
The Fota Wildlife Park is not like an ordinary zoo; here you can come face to face with free roaming animals and birds from all parts of the world. So whether it's a kangaroo that hops in front of you or a ring tailed lemur which jumps down from a tree, each visit is sure to bring its own fantastic memories.
In addition to the wonderful array of free roaming animals, you also have the opportunity to see highly endangered species such as the Rothschild giraffe, European Bison, Lion Tailed Macaque and Scimitar Horned Oryx, most of them without the obstacle of fenced-in exhibits. This is the most spectacular aspect of Fota Wildlife Park, and is the reason you'll want to spend a full day exploring Ireland's Wildest Attraction.
The facilities at the park include Children’s Play Areas, Sheltered Huts, Wheelchair Loan, Parking, Irish Rail Train Station, Picnic & Rest Areas, Serengeti Store, Savannah Café, Oasis Café, Education programmes and also First Aid. Just beside the park you'll find Fota Arboretum, which boasts a collection of trees and shrubs from different countries all around the world.
Fota Wildlife Park is a must see while visiting Cork City and county.
