Tayto Park Review
Tayto Park is a quite small park near Dublin which over the last 2 seasons has began to rapidly expand.
There are rides available for all ages as well as some large play areas and also incorporates a zoo. In 2015, Tayto Park installed 8 new rides including Irelands first wooden roller coaster "The Cu Chulainn" which is Europes largest wooden coaster with inversion. Plus in 2016 a further 3 new rides have been installed plus a new Angry Birds movie showing in the 5D cinema.
During our recent visit we also noticed further construction taking place of what could be a large new ride coming in 2017. There is talk of possibly a new dark ride and a water ride for 2017. This is all very promising for the expansion of the park.
When at the park, all the staff are very friendly and helpful. There are different pricing structures so it costs 15 Euros to enter the park and then another 15 Euros for a wrist band to ride. Or you can buy ride tokens for 1 Euro each.
Once in the park, it is very clean and well presented and looks very new. There is a great selection of rides and attractions for all ages. It also includes a factory tour af the Tayto Crisp Factory which is next to the park where you can see the workers on the machines as millions of crisps go by on conveyor belts. If you go on a Sunday then the factory is not operating but you can still walk through.
There is a great selection of food outlets at Tayto Park and we ate in the main restraunt which is like being in a massive log cabin which is beautifully presented. They offer carvery, selection of kids meals, Lasagne and salads to name a few, and are all resonably priced.
I would definatly give Tayto Park a 10 out of 10 for the experience and recomend to anyone to visit. Being in the UK we flew from Liverpool - Dublin with Ryanair for only £30 return when booked in advance and you can now reach the park by gettin the 109A bus from the airport to Ashbourne and then 105 from Ashbourne to Tayto Park. This is the cheapest option and takes roughly an hour. Or a Taxi from the airport to Tayto Park will be around 60 Euros.
