Located in Ashbourne, Co. Meath and just 30 minutes from Dublin is Ireland’s only theme park and zoo, Tayto Park. With over 100 attractions to experience and enjoy, there is something for everyone; young, old and in between.

For the thrill seekers, the Cu Chulainn, Ireland’s first rollercoaster and Europe’s first wooden rollercoaster with an inversion, is sure to get your adrenaline flowing. But that’s not all, there are a huge variety of attractions, 100+ in total. Challenge yourself high in the sky on the Extreme Climbing Walls or Sky Walk, let the kids explore our Playground, Steam Train Express or our Mini Ferris Wheel or take the Tayto Factory Tour, free with entry, and find out the history behind Tayto.

And for those who don’t need an increased heart rate to have a good time, enjoy a laid-back stroll through our zoo, where you can interact with the exceptional animal collection, from the mischievous meerkats to the largest of the big cats, the amur tiger.

The children had a thoroughly great time here, if you had very small children I dont think there were enough attractions for them, My eight year old was able to go on the rollercoaster but only just big enough to stay in his seat. It was extremely hard to find this place and the signposts need to be improved, especially... More

If you want a family fun day out packed full of exciting things to do Tayto park is the place. My kids are 8, 7 and 5 years old and they had an amazing time. We arrived at 10.30am and didn't leave until 6pm. You really do need the weather for this place everything is outdoor. Get the unlimited wrist... More

We had a great day here as 2 families together. There are plenty of rides for younger children and the older kids (and adults) also had plenty to entertain them. We have heard many bad reviews of rides and stalls being shut in bad weather but the admission price still being the same so we were glad we chose good... More

Our family, 8yo & 6yo, spent 7 hours in the park and definitely got the most out of wristbands. I wasn't sure if to get a wristband for my 6yo as she wasn't tall enough for the 'extreme' rides, but I'm glad I did as there was still loads of stuff for her to go on. If we'd paid the... More

I love fast rides and anything that doesn't go upside down so I got the wristband assuming there would be ANYTHING for me to go on but no. Complete waste of 15 euro. The zoo is ok and the factory tour is a good idea but nothing was happening because we went on a Sunday. If I just got a... More

Our 3rd visit to the park, and its only getting better and bigger. Weather was beautiful though zip line was closed so kids were upset. 120e full day for 4 person not a cheap place to go, so will visit again next year :)

The 4 of us absolutely love tay to park. It's a full day out and we never leave disappointed. Yes it is expensive for 4 tickets and 4 wristbands but if you calculate what the kids would have spent on rides compared to what the wristband cost it is a lot cheaper. Expensive day out but so worth it
