Owner description: Ireland's Wildest Attraction. Fota Wildlife Park is set on 100 acres on the scenic Fota Island in the heart of Cork Harbour. It is a unique place where you can come face to face with free roaming animals and birds from all parts of the world. So if 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. Fota Wildlife Park features the recently opened Asian Sanctuary—with Asian Lions, Sumatran Tigers, and Indian Rhino. The cheetah run, tropical house and giraffe crossing are also must-sees. The development of the Asian Sanctuary over the past five years has enhanced the Park as an iconic international visitor attraction as well as serving the core values of conservation, education, and research. Facilities include cafés, several play areas, picnic areas and a gift shop. Accessible by train and car.

Visited here with my family over Easter break. Have to say it was a really enjoyable day. There is so much to see with all the lovely animals.

I was soo pleased and happy to see the way the exhibits are designed and laid out! They are ginormous and each area has its own social structure of animals so all animals are in their family circle while enjoying the freedom to roam and huge interactive stimulating enclosures to keep them entertained!!

This was the only zoo I have been to where the animals looked happy and they were moving about! Not asleep in the corner! In the tiger area you are surrounded by 3 exhibits and in all three we had tigers circling us and even a few would let out a roar it was spectacular!!

This is a must see
