Book a visit to Wild Encounters and come and see all the awesome animals that we have the great pleasure to love and care for every day! From the slithering snakes and majestic lizards in our reptile area, to the cheeky raccoons, loveable meerkats and colourful parrots, learn all about them and their stories as you visit the Wild Encounters HQ just a short drive outside Newcastle West, Co. Limerick.

Price: €5 per person (under 2’s free)

Visiting us is currently by pre-booking only and in 1 hour slots. During your visit a keeper will put on a couple of animal talks (meerkat and parrot) at approximately 20-minute intervals during each of the slots for visitors to listen to if they wish in between wandering around our little animal facility.

Bookable time slots:

  • 11am-12pm
  • 12-1pm
  • 2-3pm
  • 3-4pm

To aid in current restrictions and social distancing there will be a maximum 10 visitors booked in per slot. These current conditions will be reviewed and altered as restrictions and government guidelines are changed in relation to the covid-19 situation.

Enhance your visit by booking one of our interactive animal experiences with your visit. (available after phase 5)

We can’t wait to welcome you to our little site so you can see how we’ve progressed so far and the potential that Wild Encounters has for the future as we expand! We looking forward to seeing you all!

Booking Your Visit

If you have a date in mind that you’d like to visit us on then simply get in touch with us to check availability. Once we have worked out a date and time slot that suits you can purchase your tickets to the left or from our online shop. Don’t have a date in mind yet? No problem! Just simply purchase your tickets and then get in touch when you’re ready to book a date (please be aware that dates and time slots are subject to availability and so specific dates cannot be guaranteed unless confirmed by booking).

Visits must be prebooked in advance and only the number of visitors purchased for as part of the booking may enter – we regret that we cannot accept additional visitors turning up on the day that haven’t already been allocated for.

Once booked into a slot, tickets are classed as 'used' whether all allocated visitors turn up for their booking or not. We regret that admission tickets are non-refundable. A booked slot can be changed up to 7 days before the booking, after this period we regret that we cannot alter a booking that has been made.
