Dublin Zoo has reopening to the public this morning, after being shut for 11 weeks.
The number of visitors has been limited to 500 at any one time, tickets will have to be pre-booked, while a new one-way system is in place.
The animals in Dublin Zoo have been without human admirers since March 12, but the gates have now reopened to limited numbers and people are only permitted to walk in one direction, to allow for social distancing.
