Visitors will be blown away as their favourite Stories, Myths and Legends are brought to life through a series of giant custom-made silk lanterns.
This magical theme, which showcases animals in literature, will feature a number of classic childhood favourites, as well as traditional Irish folklore characters, illuminating brightly throughout the Zoo.
