Fota Wildlife Park

Fota Island, County Cork

A wildlife park located on Fota Island, County Cork

Tourism Ireland

FOTA Wildlife Park is not like an ordinary zoo. Wherever possible we have chosen animals that thrive in a free-range environment, which allows them to roam free, while mixed with other species and with us human visitors! These species are also able to adjust to the Irish Climate. The animals themselves make the choice of seeking shelter when necessary. In some cases, for example the giraffes, only a barrier separates visitors from the animals but this is always unobtrusive and does not reduce the animals' quality of life.Though animals are central to everything that happens at Fota, there is plenty more to see and do once you arrive. Children are free to enjoy the play areas dotted around the Park and are invited to take part in the activities organised right throughout the year, including arts & crafts, face painting and African drumming.Visitors can see animals feeding and foraging for food while they enjoy a walk around the beautiful surrounds of Fota Island itself.
