A small zoo licenced animal facility, based in Coolyroe, Co. Limerick just outside Newcastle West. You can come and see us and the animals by booking one of our private animal experiences. We also operate a mobile animal education programme visitiing schools, nursing homes, parties and other events around the munster area.
Our ultimate goal is to eventually open up as a small zoo, participating in several conservation projects and acting as an education centre for the general public on a variety of species, but we have a lot of work before our dream becomes a reality!
All money from 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!
