Hotels near Fota Wildlife Park
Fota Wildlife Park, situated 20 minutes from the Carrigaline Court Hotel is one of Cork's main family attractions. This is no ordinary zoo; endangered and exotic species from around the world are housed at Fota, including cheetahs, tigers, monkeys, giraffes, penguins and zebras to name but a few. What makes Fota Wildlife Park special is that visitors can observe twice-daily feeding times and come face to face with the animals as they roam freely around the park.
Fota Wildlife Park cares for several different animal species in danger of extinction. Through long-established breeding programs, which are run cooperatively with other institutions around the world, the park is helping restore populations of certain species while protecting the very survival of others.
