Dublin Zoo

Looking for something to do as a family this Halloween weekend?

You may enjoy a trip to Dublin Zoo, which has a jam-packed spooktacular schedule of family fun activities from Saturday, October 28th to Monday, October 30th.

Families attending the zoo for the occasion will be treated to themed magic shows, creepy crafts, ghoulish games, a special Spooky Trail, as well as many more seasonal activities.

The best part? Each child per adult dressed in costume will go completely free.

It’s important to note that this special offer only applies to single adult tickets, not family tickets. The free entry can be availed of both at the gate and online.

There will be spooky characters throughout the zoo, face painting to match costumes, and special keeper talks that will provide an insight into the mysterious and fascinating animals who reside at Dublin Zoo, with two new talks on about the nocturnal aye-aye and the wolf habitats.

The Halloween celebration event is open to all visitors from 11am until 3pm for the final days of October on Saturday (28th), Sunday (29th), and Monday (30th).

Dublin Zoo itself is open seven days a week from 9.30am- 5.30pm.
