Belfast Zoo closed for essential maintenance

Date: 01 Feb 2019

Opening hours

Belfast Zoo will be closed from Monday 21 January to Friday 25 January 2019 and from Monday 28 January to Saturday 2 February 2019 (this date has been extended due to inclement weather).

During this time essential maintenance work and staff training will be carried out across the 55 acre site.

The zoo will re-open as normal from Sunday 3 February.  Check out our opening times to plan your next visit.

Zoo manager, Alyn Cairns, explains “Belfast Zoo is usually open every day of the year, except for Christmas Day and Boxing Day.  However, this year we have made the decision to close for selected dates in January to allow us to carry out essential maintenance work.  We aim to provide the best experience possible to all of our visitors and the closure will give us time to complete the work with minimal disruption to visitors.  We apologise for any disappointment caused during this time and look forward to welcoming everyone back again soon!
