Park · Nature / Park
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.

  • Probably the biggest city park in Europe. Long enough that you can walk 24hrs without seeing end (it's joke, but it's huge as one city district for itself). It's home of deers amd do not be afraid of....  more »
  • A great place to walk, run, cycle, or just chill in the grass. The place is so big that you will never end to see everything. The greatest part is when you find the deer. Usually the male are in...  more »

  • Amazing park. A brilliant amenity to have on your doorstep. Loads of different places to go and things to do depending on mood, time of year etc. Lovely to be able to see the deer so often but it would be great if people would stop feeding them constantly!
  • The park is huge and it is right in the middle of the city. It is a great spot for running and I went running there several times. Also nice for biking and all kinds of outdoor activities. It is also perfect to enjoy a sunny day and relax or to hangout with friends. And there is a zoo inside the park, which is paid, but is good.
  • This is a fantastic amenity spanning a vast area right to the edge of the city. A great place to go for a run, fly a kite, have a picnic, cycle, or just walk around and enjoy the sunshine and nature. For those animal lovers, you may spot the deer wandering around the various grassy plains. Or you may not, the park is truly massive.
  • So beautiful, love the kids being able to feed the wildlife outside. Huge open spaces for kids to run wild or perfect park run. The zoo was massive, well kept.
  • Amazing. The extensive greens...the wide road...Phoenix park is like no other. Maintained to the highest of standards. We've been loads of times including the zoo.... there it's something new every time. I have no idea how they keep it so flawless. The wee cafe is superb too.
