Phoenix Park, Dublin

4.7
#3 of 57 in Parks in Dublin
Wilderness in the middle of a big city, Phoenix Park features tree-lined avenues and vast grasslands and is home to a herd of wild deer. Encompassing over 700 hectares (1,700 acres), the park serves as one of the largest walled urban parks in Europe. The site includes a zoo, cricket and polo grounds, and several 18th century mansions, including one serving as the official residence of the country's president. To see the best of this big park quickly, rent a bike and ride all or part of a 14 km (8 mi) long network of traffic-free lanes. You can also hop on the tourist train that stops at the park's Victorian garden, noted for its ornamental lake, playgrounds, and picnic areas.

  • Really enjoyed the experience of the lights, my three daughters and my granddaughter brought me great to spend time with them, pity is was one of the worst nights of the year but it didn't take away the enjoyment of it. If I could make a comment to the organisers, why don't you put signs up showing you which way to go we backtracked a few times.
  • Amazing large park with a brilliant zoo. A fabulous place for all the family. A lot of renovations and investments make this place first class.
  • Absolutely love this place, the place is full of fun for any kind of age... wild life, playground zoo, cricket ground, polo ground, flower and vegetable garden, small museum, lots of water ponds and lake and much more... Great place for any day walk
  • This is a nice park in Ireland, I was here as part of the Rock 'n Role 1/2 Marathon so it was a bit of effort to get here. This is at the top of a hill and the run up was long, for me. They have lots of wide open area to hand out in and a nice walking trail if you are so inclined.
  • This park is the perfect place wether you'd like to go for a peaceful walk among trees and lakes or playing football or having a tea in one of the tea rooms in the park. There you can also visit Dublin zoo and occasionally meet some animals. I recommend
