Fota Wildlife Park has been listed as one of Ireland’s Top Ten visitor attractions and is the most popular tourist destination in Cork. The park is home to nearly 30 mammal and 50 bird species. Some of the animals roam freely with the visitors, such as the ring-tailed lemurs and squirrel monkeys, while larger animals, including the giraffe and bison, live in paddocks with unobtrusive barriers to allow viewing the animals in a more natural environment. Fota Wildlife Park also has red pandas, tapirs, siamang gibbons and many other types of animals. It’s guaranteed to be a great day out for all the family!
