Hotel Near Emerald Park

Looking for a family adventure day out but looking to escape the busy Dublin City Centre, why not venture out to Emerald Park.

Located in Killebrew on the outskirts of Co. Meath, Emerald Park opened its doors in 2010 and is Ireland’s first theme park. Combining elements of a theme park along with having a zoo onsite.

With a number of attractions from Air Race, 5D cinema and of course the famous rollercoaster as the main event, there is something to suit everyone. Children, parents and grandparents are sure to have a great day out.

A day trip that incorporates fun and learning, be sure to allow yourself some extra time to visit the onsite animals and the habitats that have been built. You will find a number of different animals from Squirrel Monkey and Meerkats to Red Bellied Tamarins.
