Dublin Zoo


The founding organisation of Dublin zoo, the Royal Zoological Society of Ireland, was founded in 1830. It didn't take them long to decide a Dublin zoo should be established. As usual during this period in history of zoos the only purpose was to have as many exotic animals as possible on display. The animals were supplied by the London Zoo.

In recent decades the Zoo has been transformed into a 28 hectare park of gardens, lakes and natural habitats for over 400 animals.
