Dublin Zoo Announce This Year’s Wild Lights Theme

They're back!

Ah… It’s almost that time of year. Christmas is right around the corner and so is the most magical event of the season. The iconic Dublin Zoo’s annual Wild Lights.

With its brand-new theme, ‘The Enchanted Zoo’, you will be in with an opportunity to experience the mystical nightlife of Dublin Zoo and its wildlife like never before.

Join the animals in a world of your imagination, from fairies and mythical creatures to gnome villages and a dream-like candy land with captivating pathways, lit up by silk lanterns.

Greeted upon arrival by the enchanted wizard, you will be invited to choose one out of three pathways, each having a unique adventure in store.

As you venture through this fascinating world you can expect to meet the nocturnal gnome keepers in their village, the guardians of the ‘Enchanting Zoo’ and will be in with an exclusive chance to see what the animals get up to when the sun goes down!

This mesmerising experience is bound to unleash your inner child and leave you with nostalgic memories that you and the ones you love will cherish forever.

Tickets for this year’s Wild Lights will go on sale tomorrow morning, October 5th at 11am at www.Dublin Zoo.ie.

The experience will be open to the public from Thursday the 16th of November, right through to January – every evening from 5-9 pm.

Admission to the event will be €24.50 for adults, €20.00 for children, and €21.50 for students and OAPs. Admission for carers of visitors is free when proper identification is presented. These prices will vary for anyone who holds the annual zoo pass.
