Fota Wildlife Park - celebrating 30 years!!!

Wow, is it really 30 years since Fota Wildlife Park first opened its doors!!! Located just 10 minutes from Cobh and the Commodore Hotel, Fota Wildlife Park has welcomed thousands of families and visitors over these years and is still one of Ireland's top attractions....and you can see why! Where else can you see so many wild and endangered animals running free and up close and personal. Zebras, giraffes, cheetahs, gibbons, lemurs and many species of monkeys...not to mention exotic birds and smaller animals. Indeed, Fota is known for its successful breeding programmes, especially its cheetah breeding programme.

With so many different species of animals roaming free, play areas for the kids, restaurants, shops, internal transport, and green picnic areas, Fota Wildlife is an ideal place to spend the entire day. There is just simple plenty to do and see....and it is so easy to get to Fota. From Cobh by road, Fota is a mere 10 minutes away....but why not take the train; an adventure in it's own right. Board the train at Cobh Railway Station and journey along the shores of Cork Harbour. Fota is just 10 minutes away by train but the views are just so spectacular!

To celebrate its 30 years the Park has shows from Bosco over the summer, themed weekends, facepainting, activities....see

....and we've put together a special package that incorporates a visit to Fota. For only €299 this is an extra special offer! Enjoy two night's Bed & Breakfast at the Commodore Hotel and admission to Fota Wildlife Park for 2 Adults and 2 children. This offer is available for the summer months; to book click here. Remember its only €299!!!

....its going to be hot, hot, hot!!!

Well other than Tuesday, the weather has been relatively warm and sunny for awhile now. Last weekend temperatures got upto 25c.

This weekend they are set to get hotter, with many weather sites predicting a mini-heatwave of sorts. Temperatures may get upto 27c or 28c. This good weather is forecast to last upto midweek and may be longer.

With this good weather now's the ideal time to take a break away....and for a short break in Ireland, there is nowhere more ideal than Cobh, Co. Cork. Located on the shores of Cork Harbour, only 10 minutes train ride from Fota Wildlife Park, and ideally located in East Cork to visit nearby attractions, beaches, etc., Cobh is a great place to spend a few days.

Aswell, this Sunday is Australia Day as Cobh pulls out all the stops to welcome the passengers and crew of the cruise liner Sea Princess. Over 2,000 passengers have been onboard since this liner left Sydney Harbour on a World Cruise. This cruise takes place every two years and this is now the 3rd Australia Day to welcome the liner to Cobh.

If you'd fancy a few days in Cobh over this hot spell check out our Special Offers!!!
