With more than 400 animals across 28 hectares, Dublin Zoo is widely recognised as one of the leading zoological parks on the continent. Being one of the Irish capital`s most popular landmarks, it often attracts the attention of the rich and famous, the most recent being American musical sensation Jennifer Lopez.
The singer, whose extensive repertoire of hits include Jenny From the Block
, I`m Real
, Get Right
and On The Floor
, was seen enjoying a family day with her three-year-old twins, mother Guadalupe and dancer boyfriend Casper, just hours before entertaining crowds on her much anticipated show at the city`s O2 Arena.
It proved to be a big hit with Lopez, who despite previously planning to stay for just one hour ended up staying for three after keepers treated her to a special tour of the grounds. Sources say the former American Idol judge was amazed to learn about the extensive history of the zoo, which dates back to 1831.
If you happen to be staying in any of the hotels in Dublin
in the coming months, be sure to visit Dublin Zoo for a great family day out.
