Outreach - Dublin Zoo is Ireland's most popular visitor attraction, and welcomed almost one million visitors last year.

Outreach

Dublin Zoo offers an exclusive outreach experience for your students. Our Education and Outreach Officer delivers engaging sessions on wildlife from around the world using brilliant biofacts, Dublin Zoo animal footage and insights to conservation work in the field. Designed to support the Social, Environmental and Scientific Education (SESE) and DPSM accredited, your students are encouraged to really investigate the living world around them just like Charles Darwin once did.

The outreach visit is a perfect way to prepare your students for a visit to Dublin Zoo. We are on hand to tailor the visit to your needs and design it to support a follow-up session in Dublin Zoo.

If you book a class or school session, we offer a 15% discount on a class follow-up visit to the Zoo. Dublin Zoo's education department are on hand to deliver a session that is tailored to your students needs.
