Date Spot of the Week: Wild Lights
“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. Showcasing a brand new theme – Stories, Myths, and Legends. With magical scenes from well-known stories like the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Peter Pan and the Jungle Book…to best-loved nursery rhymes and characters from Irish Mythology.
Tickets range from €16 – €20 depending on if you’re a student or not. Make sure you break out your winter coat for this and grab a hot chocolate. I’d recommend booking a later slot if you can when 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).
