"Fota Wildlife Park" Fota Wildlife Park Tip by Waoife
Fota Wildlife Park, Cork: 3 reviews and 7 photos
Just outside Cork city, this is much better than your average zoo.
The animals are not kept behind bars (well except for cheetahs that are well fenced in for pretty obious reasons!!) but are free to roam around - on their own islands in the lake for the monkeys, in a great big field for the giraffes, zebras & friends, and roaming the park for some of the smaller animals (small kangaroos (presume they're wallabies??), peacocks ...).
You can see the animals up close (walking right by you on the pavement in some instances!) & because they have much more space they don't look as bored as the poor creatures in a regular zoo.
Address: Carrigtwohill, Co. Cork
Directions: Just a few miles outside Cork city on the way to Cobh - 15 mintues drive from the city (head for Waterford/Rosslare & then follow the signs for Cobh) or else take the Cobh train to Fota Island (check out the timetable & prices at www.irishrail.ie)
