Fota Wildlife park is located on Fota Island in County Cork and is home to nearly 30 mammal and 50 bird species. Some of the animals roam freely among their visitors while others are viewable behind large paddocks.
The education centre and Summer camps bring 13,000 students annually to the park so it is very much a working facility as well as Cork's premier tourist attraction that will greatly appeal to children of all ages. Cheetahs, bison, flamingos and lemurs - the park is a great way to experience animals close-up. You can find out more at: http://www.fotawildlife.ie
