This zoo is fantastic. The animals look very well cared for and the staff are very friendly and helpful.

This zoo is so lovely! I genuinely enjoyed walking around, seeing all the wonderful animals. I don’t think I’ve ever been so close to a giraffe!

Small but very special collection of mostly endangered and rare species of animals (snow leopard, lowland gorilla) and all of them in specious settings. The whole zoo is like a garden as well, lots of plants and flowers and almost a botanical garden. Great time!

The TV programme The Zoo made me interested in Dublin Zoo again. Well it didn’t disappoint. You can spend the whole day there. It compares very well with London or Berlin. It is so well kept. Staff excellent. And the animals…Well isn’t that why we go?

23 Virtual Zoo Field Trips, Tours, and Zoo Cams That Get You Up Close to the Animals

We love field trips, but sometimes organizing an excursion just can’t happen. Fortunately, we live in a time when technology can bring the excitement to us. The pandemic encouraged many zoos and aquariums to put in the effort to bridge the gap for visitors at home. As such, we’re able to share this list of fantastic virtual zoo field trips, virtual zoo tours, and zoo cams you can enjoy from anywhere.

Derry is officially the only completely walled city in Ireland and it’s one of the finest examples of a walled city in Europe.

The walls, which were built between 1613-1618, were used to defend the city against early 17th century settlers.

Take a virtual tour of the Gaol

7. St. Patrick’s Cathedral

St Patrick’s Cathedral

The spectacular Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin was founded back in 1191 and is the National Cathedral of the Church of Ireland.

Boasting a 43-metre spire, the cathedral is the tallest church in Ireland (it’s also the biggest). It was built between 1220 and 1260 in honour of Ireland’s patron saint and it’s one of the most impressive buildings in the city, as you’ll see here .

While Dublin on St. Patrick’s Day is a little crazy, many places of worship hold St. Patrick’s Day prayers and they’re a great place to escape the hustle and bustle.

Take a virtual tour of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral

8. The GPO Dublin


If you live in Dublin, or if you’ve visited in the past, it’s highly likely that you’ve spent a bit of time on O’Connell Street.

It is easy to saunter along this street and see nothing but the Spire or the GPO. The former is an enormous spike jutting up in the middle of the street, after all.

Take a virtual tour of the GPO

9. Glasnevin Cemetery

Glasnevin Cemetery

Glasnevin Cemetery opened on the 21st of February, 1832. I can’t recommend the physical tour here enough – definitely pop it onto your to-visit-when-things-get-back-to-normal list.

The General History runs every day and there’s a re-enactment at 14:30 on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Glasnevin contains the graves of a number of Ireland’s national figures, such as Daniel O’Connell, Michael Collins, Éamon de Valera and Constance Markievicz.
