This is a very picturesque zoo with good access to the animals, almost all in open habitats. €20 per head for adults it was well worth the ticket price. Do not miss the Arctic area with the unusual seabird exhibit, penguins, underwater viewing areas etc......More

Great day out for the family and friends, staff are all friendly and look after the animals extremely well. If you time it right you can watch the animals getting fed.

Really fantastic zoo with a moat system in place so very little cages which gives you plenty better opportunities to see the animals. Elephants and Lemurs in particular were very interactive. Good range of indoor and outdoor parts. Only a 5 minute walk from hagentier...More
