Tayto Park
Tayto Park is Irelands only Theme Park and Zoo. Since opening in 2010, Tayto Park has developed significantly in its offering and visitor numbers have reflected this by growing year on year, from 330,000 in 2011 to almost 775,000 in 2016.

Challenge yourself high in the sky on the Extreme Climbing Walls or Sky Walk, let the kids explore the Playground, Steam Train Express or Mini Ferris Wheel or take a selfie with Mr. Tayto before experiencing the Tayto Factory Tour, free with entry, and find out the history behind Ireland’s favourite crisp, Tayto. The Zoo at Tayto Park is home to a variety of exceptional and diverse animals including many conservation dependent species. With everything from mischievous meerkats to the largest of the big cats, the Amur tiger. Not to mention our new “World of Raptors” free flying birds of prey exhibit, which takes place twice daily at 2:30pm & 4pm. Witness some of the world's largest eagles and fastest birds of prey, impressive vultures as well as our iconic and lovable owls. There is a diverse selection of food options at Tayto Park.
