Here at the National Reptile Zoo Kilkenny, we want to increase understanding of the world’s reptiles and amphibians. We want to conserve animals and their habitats as well as to offer opportunities for learning and enjoyment to the public.
With over 50 exhibits, Animal Encounter Zone, Tropical Walk-through Habitat, indoor and outdoor Picnic Area, Snack Bar, Souvenir Shop and Soft Play Area, we can keep the entire family entertained and educated all at once!
And if you can’t come to us…then we can come to you! Why not check out our Zoo to You options! Great for schools, shopping centres, family fun days, parties….the possibilities are endless!
At Reptile Village Zoo we believe that the only way to really appreciate some of these magnificent animals is to meet them personally! And we’ll give you the chance to do just that!
We hold animal encounter sessions everyday, usually every hour during our busier times and less frequently at other times. But we like to ensure that everyone gets the chance to hold or touch some of our scaly friends!
All of our animals are “ambassadors for their species” and this means that they allow you to better understand the plight of some of these animals in the wild, and how important they are to our ecosystem.
Animal encounter sessions at The National Reptile Zoo Kilkenny are carried out by our trained reptile wranglers and they’ll show you a side to these beautiful creatures that you never knew existed!
