Tayto Park, Ashbourne

4.0
Have a family fun day at Tayto Park, an amusement park centered around one of the country's most popular brands of chips and popcorn. Opened in 2010, the park features a zoo where you can come face-to-face with unusual farm animals, including miniature donkeys, pygmy goats, Ouessant sheep, and Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs. Other family-friendly attractions include rock-climbing walls, mechanical bull rides, live puppet shows, and face-painting activities. Take a self-guided factory tour to see the popular potato chips made from start to finish, and then visit the park's teahouse, built into a giant sycamore tree and serving tea, coffee, light snacks, and homemade ice cream.

  • Was in Tayto Park yesterday. In our group was 3 adults, 1 teenager and 4 kids under 7. It was obviously expensive to get in. €120 for my family and €90 for the other with wristbands. However, without ...  more »
  • Was there with my 6 years old and he really enjoyed it. Got the wristband which I think was good idea because he was repeating many of the rides... definitely going back next summer  more »

  • This place is absolutely brilliant. It's a great place for sunny day to bring the kids out. There are restraunts around the park and they are really good. The attractions are really good and they just built a new ride which is the best water ride I've ever been on. They do have a bit of a wasp problem but I'm sure at some point they'll sort that out.
  • Looking for a great day out? Then Tayto Park is your only man! €30 entrance (adults and kids) lets you on everything and there is plenty. Each time I go there is a new attraction and they are super clever about it all. What particularly impresses me is that once you're in your not fleeced for anymore money - lunch food is very reasonable, especially a kids lunch at €4.99. Can't wait for my next trip.
  • Really good day out for children 7 to 18 (and also their parents). Buy the wristband for free entry to all things.Some really scary rides and activities so the children will not be bored. The fast food outlets and sit down restaurant serve excellent food.Its the best that I have eaten in any amusement park and I have been to many all over the world. Reasonably priced also. The main issue is the Irish Weather !!
  • Fantastic family day out! So much to see and do here for all the family. You need more than one day here. We particularly loved the amazing and unusual animal and raptor collections, shows and feeding sessions. The rides are great fun but be prepared to queue.My two (aged 6 and 9)spent lots of time in the fabulous playgrounds too.The circus show in a big tent was an added bonus too included in the price with excellent gymnasts, jugglers etc.Initially I thought the €30 wristband price was expensive but changed my mind when I saw what you could access for that. Definitely recommend Tayto Park for a wonderful family day out.
  • Often wondered what the big deal was about a theme park named after a potato chip! We had friends leaving Ireland and we had kids of similar ages so thought we would come and visit. Well from the moment we arrived and saw the wooden roller coaster I knew this was going to be great. The roller coaster is worth the journey, wooden and great drops and curves, really is great. Then there is the rest of the park, the rides aren't nearly as good as the roller coaster but they are decent. We ordered pizza for lunch for around 10 of us and the prices weren't ridiculous which surprised me. The grounds are nice and makes for a pleasant day.
