Dublin Zoo’s Wild Lights cancelled due to Covid-19

It’s one of our favourite events of the winter season, but sadly Wild Lights in Dublin Zoo has been cancelled this year.

The beautiful lighting display which runs after dark for a three month period, won’t be going ahead this year due to Covid-19.

Dublin Zoo released a statement, explaining; “We are extremely grateful to our annual pass holders and visitors for your patience and support as we, like many others, navigate challenges we have never experienced before due to Covid-19.

“Over the past few months we have been working hard to safely welcome visitors to Dublin Zoo, strictly adhering to governmental health and safety directives whilst ensuring we continue to deliver the highest standard of care for the animals.”

“We are sad to announce that due to the current environment, Wild Lights will not take place at Dublin Zoo this year.

“We will continue to enhance and improve the Outdoor Safari Trail experience to ensure you still enjoy visiting Dublin Zoo during the Winter months.”

While it’s cancelled this year, they hope it will return “bigger and better than ever” in 2021 – and so do we!
