Fota Wildlife Park is delighted to be awarded Experience Destination (one-destination venues) in the CXi Ireland Customer Experience Report 2016.

In its report, CXi said that Fota Wildlife Park ‘creates a sense of wonderment for both kids and adults alike. The staff are happy to spend time with families, educating them and giving them a deeper appreciation of the natural world. They also offer excellent seasonal events to keep the offering fresh and relevant.’

More than 42,000 customer experiences were evaluated on ‘six pillars’ - personalisation, integrity, managing expectations, and customer effort, empathy and resolving issues. Fota Wildlife Park was also evaluated on customer loyalty, value for money and verbatim comments.
