Welcome to Wild Encounters! - as we are not currently open please direct enquiries via email or facebook message as we are busy preparing the site for opening from 1st August and so there is no-one manning the phone lines, thank you.

We’re just a small animal facility outside Newcastle West in County Limerick trying to make a difference in the world by bringing people closer to the wonders of the natural world around them! We bring learning and fun together for old and young alike!

All money from your visits, our outreach programme and experiences goes towards the care of the animals that call Wild Encounters their home, many of which are animals rehomed to us from the exotic pet trade. We thank you in advance for your interest and support in what we do!


Reopening from 1st August - Taking bookings now! Please send enquiries via email/facebook message as we are currently working feverishly around the site to get things ready over the next month and so do not have anyone regularly by the phone line. We look forward to seeing you all soon!!!

Our reopening date is currently in line with government guidelines and may be subject to change in line with developments in the covid-19 situation
