Fota Wildlife Park:
Fota Wildlife Park was opened in 1983. Located in the south of Ireland, in County Cork, the park is set on 75 acres, and is home to nearly 30 mammal and 50 bird species. Many of the animals roam freely with the visitors, such as the ring-tailed lemurs and squirrel monkeys. The larger animals, including the giraffe and bison, live in spacious paddocks with unobtrusive barriers. This allows visitors to enjoy an up close and personal experience with the animals.
