Tayto Park
Ashbourne, Co. Meath
Tayto Park is Ireland’s only theme park and zoo located in County Meath. It is home to Cú Chulainn, Europe’s largest wooden roller coaster with an inversion and Ireland’s only water flume ride, The Viking Voyage.

From rollercoasters and playgrounds, to a petting farm and bird of prey displays, The Grand Carousel and Power Surge, there are plenty of attractions to suit the whole family.

Adventure through their zoo with over 300 animals and stop by and say hello to the mischievous meerkats or visit the Amur tigers. Immerse yourself in the Lemur Woods experience where you can walk amongst the lemurs.

Take to the skies on the family friendly coaster, the Flight School or keep your feet on the ground and get your license at the Nissan Driving School.

The Eagle’s Sky Zone is for big thrill seekers and the Eagle's Nest is best suited for younger visitors. Fuel up at one of our many food outlets whether it be a pizza lunch lakeside, a burger on the go or a meal at the Lodge Restaurant, there is a variety to choose from.

Rest your feet at the World of Raptors free flying bird display and witness some of the world’s largest eagles and impressive vultures, the fastest and most cunning birds of prey, as well as the park's iconic owls. Finish off your day with a trip to the gift shop to pick up a souvenir to remember your experience at Tayto Park.
