Wild Ireland is a wildlife sanctuary for rescued animals. Visitors can step back in time to an ancient woodland, inhabited by brown bears, wolves, lynx and wild boar.

Wild Ireland is a wildlife sanctuary set in a little piece of Celtic rainforest on the Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal, on the Wild Atlantic Way.

Wild Ireland focuses on animals that were once native to Ireland so they are perfectly adapted to the environment. Brown bears, European wolves and lynx all now live among other animals in large natural habitats back together in the Irish forest for the first time in thousands of years.

Lots of wild birds inhabit Wild Ireland and the lakes are home to swans, geese, ducks and even an otter. There are lots of other animals for visitors to see, such as red foxes, crane, wild boar, deer, capercaillie, snowy owls, wildcats and barn owls.

There is a lot to see and do for children too. They can take the fairy trail around the rainforest, listen to tales of ancient folklore, play in the play park and finish off with some treats from the Wild Ireland gift shop and coffee shop.
