While some animals seemed to have appropriate housing, like the rabbits and geese, others were in desparate need of bigger and cleaner cages, like all the birds, monkeys, chinchillas and raccoons. Especially the owls seemed distressed.

We came upon this place by flook while camping in Killarney. Reasonably priced for family of 4 with every type of animal from a puppy to an owl to a goat wandering the path. Yes, it could do with a little TLC, but in the...More
