With temperatures rising throughout the week, zookeepers at Tayto Park, located in Ashbourne, Co. Meath are ensuring that all animals are keeping cool, refreshed and having fun in the sun!
Not only are visitors to Tayto Park, Ireland’s only theme park and zoo enjoying the sun, the resident animals at the Tayto Park Zoo are lapping up the warm weather too.
