Welcome to Wild Encounters! A fully zoo licenced and EXCITING animal outreach programme designed to educate, entertain and stimulate people of all ages about the natural world with our animal visits!
Whether it’s an educational animal visit to your school; a calm and relaxing afternoon at your nursing home; animal parties for birthdays, holy communions/confirmations and other children’s events; or even photo opportunities and static displays for weddings, corporate family fun days and other functions, our goal is to interest children and adults alike with our varied range of animals and provide something different for any occasion!
Wild Encounters is run by a professional team with a zoological and educational career background. We're zoo licenced, fully insured and garda vetted, and based in the village of Adare (from June 2018 this will be Coolyroe, Co. Limerick as we move to a larger site to accomodate our quickly growing collection) which makes us ideally suited to reach many areas of mid-west and Southern Ireland within our 2 hour driving radius.
We have a fantastic team of animals ranging from birds...mammals...reptiles...creepy crawlies...the lot, so why not GET WILD and enquire about our mobile zoo coming to you!!!
