Emerald Park
Ashbourne, Co. Meath
Escape to the nation's only theme park and zoo located in the heart of Ireland's Ancient East, County Meath. Emerald Park is home to Ireland’s only water flume ride, The Viking Voyage.

At Emerald Park, which is situated in Ashbourne and just a 30 minute drive from Dublin, there is something for the whole family to enjoy. It is filled with thrill seeking attractions, a junior area, playgrounds, shows and entertainment plus a fantastic zoo which is home to over 250 animals.

Take a ride on the wild side and meet some big cats, tigers, leopards, or visit a free flying birds of prey show and see some of the world's largest eagles as well as the park's iconic owls. For that adrenaline rush take a spin on the legendary Cú Chulainn roller coaster or for those young adventurers why not explore the playgrounds, jump on a train ride, and have an exciting adventure on Dino Dash. Get ready to have some fun and treasure memories for years to come with a fun filled day out at Emerald Park.
