Phoenix Park, Dublin

(4.6/5 based on 3,400+ reviews on the web)
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. A visit to Phoenix Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Dublin tourist route planner to plot your vacation.

  • It is a large park, in which you can find various monuments and establishments (like the Zoo or some embassies) plus the main attraction of this park are deer you can find freely in the. I think what I don't like is that the park they pass through several streets removing (to my taste) charm as are busy.
