Fodor's Review

Drama from the world of nature, in the form of an amazing butterfly house, is on display at Alcorn's Tropical World and mini zoo, near Letterkenny. You will also find an eclectic collection of lizards, lemurs, geckos, squirrel monkeys, bearded dragons, and even snakes—who said St. Patrick banished them all from Ireland’s fair shores? The addition of a Jurassic Land and a Bug World in 2017 brought added dimensions of color. There's a covered play area for children as well as a café and garden center.
