Wild Lights at Dublin Zoo will have a magical new theme this year

Wild Lights is back at Dublin Zoo this year with a magical new theme.

This year’s theme ‘The Enchanted Zoo’ promises to be the best yet with new discoveries into the secret life of Dublin Zoo at night.

Enter a world of magic and wonder with fairies, mythical creatures, vibrantly coloured animals, a gnome village, and even a dreamlike candy land, all lit up as beautiful silk lanterns.

Visitors will be greeted by the enchanted Wizard upon arrival. They can then choose their own adventure from a choice of three pathways to explore first.

Each pathway offers a magical gateway to showcase the secret life of Dublin Zoo at night.

Wild Lights will open to the public every day from November 16th until January 2024 from 5 pm – 9 pm (excluding Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and St Stephen’s Day).

Children under the age of three go free but will require a pre-booked ticket. Students and OAP tickets are available for €20.50 for annual pass holders and €21.50 for those without an annual pass.
