Dublin Zoo will close for Pope's Visit

Tuesday, 07 August 2018

To facilitate the visit of Pope Francis to the Phoenix Park, the Phoenix Park will be closed to the public on Saturday 25th, Sunday 26th and Monday 27th August. This means that Dublin Zoo will not open for these days.

The necessary Dublin Zoo staff have been provided with accreditation allowing entry to the Phoenix Park to ensure that the animals are cared for as normal during this brief closure.

Dublin Zoo recognises that its closure, as part of wider the Phoenix Park closure, is necessary to ensure the health and safety of the hundreds of thousands of people who will be attending this public event.
