  1. A great day out for your employees
  2. Accessible by car or train
  3. Easy to use digital system
  4. Corporate responsibility

 

  1. A great day out for your employees

 Recent exit surveys conducted by Behaviour and Attitudes at Fota Wildlife Park show that almost 80% of visitors say that Fota Wildlife Park was the reason for holidaying or visiting the area. We are one of the most popular tourist attractions in Ireland, and for good reason.

We are Ireland’s only zoological wildlife park. Set on 100 acres, the park is currently home to 135 species and 75 of these species face extinction in the wild such as Asian lions, Sumatran tigers, and Indian rhino.

Fota Wildlife Park consists of the Asian Sanctuary, African savannah, Palm walk, and other areas that provide a safe, outdoor day out for all ages. We also have a variety of free-roaming animals throughout the park such as Ring-tailed lemur, Kangaroo, Bennett’s Wallaby, and Mara.

There are playgrounds, seating and toilet facilities dotted throughout the park for when you need to take a break. There are several options when it comes to dining situated within our park. The Savannah Café at the Main Entrance serves a variety of snacks, sandwiches, hot and cold beverages. The Oasis Café is located at the Lake and has hot fast-food options for all the family.

In the Asian Sanctuary, vendors such as Volcano Pizza and Badger & Dodo offer freshly made pizzas and coffees during the peak visitor season (currently weekends and during the summer season).

There are also many benches and seating areas throughout the park that are ideal to enjoy a picnic or just take in the surroundings.

  1. Easy to get here

 Why not make a complete day out of it and take the train from Kent Station to Fota Wildlife Park? Serviced by the Cork-Cobh line, this scenic train journey across the Cork Estuary takes only 15 minutes from Kent Station and affords beautiful views of Cork Harbour Islands. This also provides the option of a more sustainable way of travelling, especially if your employees are staying or living in Cork City or Cobh.  Our ‘Station Gate’ entrance is located adjacent to the Irish Rail Fota stop, making this a convenient, and accessible way of travelling.

 Fota Wildlife Park is easily accessed by many national road routes. We are only a stone’s throw away from Cork City – only a short 20 minutes’ drive by car.

If you choose to park your car at Fota, this means that a visit to Fota House’s grounds, frame yard garden, walled gardens and arboretum are also included in the €3 car park charge and monies raised from this go towards the upkeep of Fota House and Gardens. The Irish Heritage Trust, which owns Fota House and Gardens, is a charitable status organisation like the Wildlife Park.

 

  1. Easy to use digital system

We have recently introduced a corporate digital ticketing system that makes managing your ticket bookings easier than ever. This system makes it simple to assign, review and keep track of your company’s tickets and is also more convenient for your employees.

When you assign tickets, your employees will be sent a link to our booking webpage. The tickets will be sent straight to their email, taking out the hassle of carrying around physical tickets and avoiding the risk of tickets getting lost.

By taking the paperless route, you are also opting for the more environmentally friendly option, cutting out the need for resources such as ink and paper in printing out hard tickets.

  1. Opportunity to fulfil Corporate Responsibility

 Fota Wildlife Park is a conservation charity, so if you are looking to motivate your staff, promote your brand, or simply donate to our conservation projects, working in partnership with Fota Wildlife Park may be the right choice for your organisation.

Working with Fota Wildlife Park may help fulfil your corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy by making a corporate donation or habitat sponsorship to help to fund our endangered species breeding programmes and the many conservation projects that we work with in Ireland and internationally.
