A Date to Remember at Dublin Zoo!

Tuesday, 24 January 2017

Dublin Zoo has created a Valentine’s date with a difference for all of those couples looking for something a little special on the most romantic weekend of the year.


For this special event, the Zoo will open its doors exclusively for 100 couples at 8am on Saturday February 11th and Sunday February 12th for a very unique Valentine’s experience. Upon entering the Zoo the couples will collect a romantic breakfast picnic from Haughton House and then experience the early morning sights and sounds of the Zoo.

Throughout the morning the team will host special keeper talks on the courtship, breeding and the exotic romantic rituals of some of the animals.  Couples will also receive a romantic goody bag and souvenir key ring to keep as a reminder of their experience.

Tickets for this special Valentine’s date can be purchased here.

Dublin Zoo, a not for profit organisation, is open seven days a week from 9.30am to 5pm in February.
