With the new series of The Zoo beginning on RTÉ One tonight, Thursday March 28, at 7:00pm, Dublin Zoo has announced its plans for the Easter weekend.

Watch the preview of RTÉ One's The Zoo here.

Dublin Zoo says: "Throughout this special weekend visitors can take part in the Easter festivities to learn all about Easter traditions and discover more about the Zoo’s birds and chicks.

"Younger visitors will also get an opportunity to create a piece of Easter magic at the arts and crafts station in the farmhouse and watch the animals receive their tasty Easter treats."

On Easter Sunday there will be a Bunny Disco, with special guest appearance by the Easter Bunny, on the Great Lawn in front of Haughton House.

Dublin Zoo is also scheduling additional keeper talks over Easter. For more details, visit: www.dublinzoo.ie.
