Ability Challenged Persons Toilets

Assistance Dogs

Dublin Zoo does not allow dogs into the main area of Dublin Zoo but we do have a sitting area at a location in Dublin Zoo which provides temporary accommodation for assistance dogs while their owners visit. Assistance dogs will be kept in comfortable accommodation for the duration of the visit and will be provided with fresh drinking water.

Food Allergies

Dublin Zoo’s catering partner, Baxter Storey, follows all food safety protocol and provides consumer information and advice on allergens in all restaurants. 

Although animals are usually fed at a distance from the public, the produce we feed our animals may contain human allergens. 

As visitors are permitted to bring their own food produce on site providing an allergen-free environment is not possible.
