Nestled in an ancient Celtic rainforest, Wild Ireland offers sanctuary to many animals that have been exploited, abused and pushed to the point of extinction at the hands of man.
Wild Ireland offers sanctuary to many animals that have been persecuted and hunted into extinction in Ireland, such as Brown Bears, Wolves, Lynx, and Wild Boar.
We bring them home and provide them with any immediate medical care, whilst offering them an environment, food and enrichment tailored to their unique needs.
Too many animals are exploited and abused in places such as laboratories, circuses, roadside zoos and the illegal pet trade.
Wild Ireland provides a safe space for these animals to recover, both physically and mentally.
Some of these animals need to learn how to be around other animals. They then need to learn that they can trust the humans who are giving them care. This can be a long and difficult process, but Wild Ireland provides them with everything they need to succeed.
Nurture natural habit and instincts
Wild Ireland has created natural habitats for the animals in our care, so they can live as if living in the wild.
Come and visit our Brown Bears, European Wolves, Wild Boar, Lynx and more back together in the Irish forest for the first time in thousands of years.
Lots of wild birds call Wild Ireland home and our beautiful lake is home to Swans, Ducks, and even Otters.
Provide Fresh Food
The dietary requirements of our animals is carefully curated by experts to give them a natural, nutrient rich menu tailored to their individual and species needs.
We also have a programme of enrichment to give them daily challenges to forage for their food and to keep them motivated and active.
All the food we source is both ethical and suitable for human consumption.
Restore the forest
As part of our effort to restore the natural habitat of the animals we have living in Wild Ireland, we plant trees.
Since opening, we have already planted more than 10,000 trees! This not only benefits the animals calling Wild Ireland home, but also the planet, combating climate change and helping to restore the Celtic Rainforest.
We have a a programme of education at Wild Ireland and teach our guests about the plight of animals in the wild and the negative impacts man has upon them.
We inspire a new generation of conservationists to ensure the preservation of our wildlife and forests into the future.
They will be delighted to hear historic tales of our many species and stories of ancient Irish folklore.
