The National Reptile ZooGowran, County Kilkenny
Ireland's only Reptile Zoo, displaying snakes, lizards, tortoise, turtles, crocodiles, alligators, caiman, spiders, scorpions, frogs, salamanders and more. Reptile Village offers an interactive experience where you can get a little closer and even handle some of the animals!
With over 50 cool exhibits, dedicated Animal Encounter Zone, Tropical Walk-through Habitat, indoor and outdoor Picnic Areas and Play Areas, plus a Snack Bar and Souvenir Shop, these guys can keep the entire family entertained, educated and exercised all at once!
And every hour during busy days (slightly less frequently off peak season) a host of trained reptile wranglers can help you get an up close encounter with some exciting creatures too!
Plus their Radical Reptile Party package includes a special encounter session with a keeper as well as your own private party area, full access to play areas, and trips around several parts of the zoo including the walk through exhibit. Plus of course refreshments (including hot food options) and the invitations that get it all started. Hurrah!
