Date Spot of the Week


“There are darknesses in life and there are lights, and you are one of the lights, the light of all lights.”
— Bram Stoker


Take that special someone that brightens up your day to the magical ‘Wild Lights‘ experience. The Zoo has been transformed into a world of illumination with tailor-made lanterns. There are some spectacular new themes this year. Such as, a vibrant Sea World, Winter Wonderland, Chinese lanterns and the North Pole.

Tickets range from €16 to €20 depending if you’re a student or not. Make sure you break out your winter coat for this and grab a hot chocolate, it gets pretty frosty towards the North Pole. It generally opens at 5:00 (closes at 9:00) but I’d recommend you wait until it’s pitch black to make the most of the evening. Take your time sauntering around the zoo to stretch the evening out. If all goes well, you’re best bet is to make your way up to Smithfield Square to grab a drink in one of the bars (Frank Ryans, Dice Bar, Token, Oscars Cafe Bar).
