"We are bringing our kids to Fota for many years now and we all found the VIP family experience showed us a side to Fota that we had never seen before.  Being in the park before it opened was brilliant, getting behind the scences and up close with so many of the animals was fantastic and the kids thoroughly enjpoyed every bit of it."
