What you'll do

Make the most out of your visit to Seal Rescue Ireland's Visitor Center with this one of a kind opportunity to get 'hands on', behind the scenes with this half day, immersive programme! Start off by receiving an in-depth presentation about Ireland's seals and why they need our help, and then receive a full 'behind the scenes' tour of the hospital. Then it's time to get your hands dirty working alongside our animal care team! Together, you will clean the pools and kennels, feed the seals, and help with animal care tasks. You will get the opportunity to work up close with the seal pups, get to know their stories and personalities, and get great photo opportunities while contributing valuably to our efforts.
