The dolphins have saved the day

A bit too many cages and places were empty or the animals were hiding and sleeping, but the dolphin's show was really something to remember. Staff was helpful and friendly as well.

This zoo is amazing, probably the best zoo we have ever visited. It's a bit expensive but worth the experience. 2 need to spend at least a couple of hours to explore the different parts of the zoo. They have a great show with dolphins and see lions - warmly recommend! Another highligt is the cable way that covers most... More

Zoo cost €20 for an adult but well worth it as they appear to be putting the money back in to improve the cages. Brilliant primate enclosures and dolphin show. Animals look well cared for and cages are clean. Gardens are kept nice although not much to see in February! Metro blue line is across the road with a McDonald... More

The zoo has a good variety of animals. It is a very good day out for the children. Unfortunately the train and the cable car were not working that day

The price is quite expensive, but it worth. The dolphin show is fantastic. The cableway ride offer a beautiful view of the whole zoo as well as the restricted areas.

We arrived at the zoo, it was very quite, the animals looked like they had not been feed for days. Some of the reptiles looked dead. They should consider closing this zoo down! Cruelty to animals !

It is just cruel that the city council allows this zoo to be open. I have never seen such cruelty in my life. There is not space for animals, its tiny and goes upwards all the time. The elephant in the so called elephant enclosure ha about 10 square metes to dwell in. Not only he has no stimulation, he... More
