Book a Hotel near Dublin Zoo

Dublin Zoo is one of Dublin’s oldest and most popular attractions and a must on your itinerary especially when visiting the city during summer on a family break. Simply hop on the Luas a short 3 minute walk from Maldron Hotel Tallaght and the Luas will take you to Heuston Station. The walk to the Zoo is about 20 minutes.  Located in the Phoenix Park, the walk is both scenic and fun as you watch the Luas whiz by and spot the number of open top buses. Then as you approach the park you can enjoy the more peaceful walk to the Zoo and soak up the atmosphere of the many excited children eagerly waiting to see the animals.
