Fota Wildlife Park Cork – family pass and VIP family experience review

fota wildlife park cork review vip family pass fota wildlife park family pass

Last year one of the first big purchases I made with money I earned myself was the yearly pass for Fota Wildlife Park here in Cork. So many of my friends have it and even though its about a half hour drive from the house I just knew it was something we would get a huge amount of use out of.

I know my wedding was aaaages ago now but I thought this was a nice DIY that I could share with everyone. Instead of opting for a traditional guest book I wanted something that wouldn’t get shoved onto a shelf and rarely looked at. It didn’t take long to see this idea on Pinterest – usually it was done so that guests would print their own finger print on a tree or the back of the bike. However, I’m a control freak so visions of a lopsided arrangement of balloons on the back of the bike didn’t sit well with me! Plus I’m no detective so deciphering finger prints isn’t my forte and I wanted to be able to look at the tree and see instantly who had been there on our big day. Continue reading
