  • This impressive Obelisk located in Phoenix Park: it was built in honour of the Duke of Wellington who defeated Napoleon at Waterloo. During the visit to the Park we discovered the origins of great General in Dublin.

  • In Phoenix Park. The obelisk is 203 ft tall and is the largest obelisk in Europe. It was built to celebrate the victories of the Duke of Wellington (Arthur Wellesley) who was born in Dublin.  more »
  • We came here along with the Hop on-Hop off bus and the bus also stops here. Remarkably, we found that there is no one, let alone sits down. I think that says enough already of this place. The monument is/is in a more beautiful park (the entrance is a stately broad Avenue. Why this monument? Wellington has Napoleon defeated at the battle of Waterloo.

  • What a great place to have on your doorstep everyone should visit.
  • A really nice area to relax after a day of attending the Zoo which is around the corner. Really nice and relaxing atmosphere to have a picnic in. Also has a nice walkway around it if you fancy a stroll.. Would highly recommend this area
  • Beautiful ! You can climb on the side. Also great place to have a picnic
  • It's just a monument nothing exciting
  • Its a lump of stone in a big green open space. Nice area on a sunny day

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
