Things to do


We are currently closed until the current situation in relation to COVID-19 has improved. 

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support. We will endeavor to care for our animals behind closed doors for as long as is necessary. We would appreciate any support you can give at this time as our current resources can only take us so far. Gift certificates are still available online, and can be redeemed at anytime at a later date.


We’ve packed up and re-located to Kilkenny City!
We are excited to welcome everyone to our new facility (with lots of new and exciting elements, and of course much larger habitats for our ever growing creatures!) and will be opening our doors at 10am on Friday the 27th of December at The National Reptile Zoo, Hebron Business Park, Kilkenny City, R95 KF6V.
