#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.

  • A step from the city centre, surrounded by greenery, among squirrels, seagulls and canines! A show that doesn't happen every day!

  • A gorgeous park on the outskirts of Dublin. You could easily spend a day there. The park is absolutely vast. There is a bike hire station at the entrance, the Dublin Zoo, a little cafe, lots of ice cream vans, a huge monument to the Duke of Wellington, the president's house and lots lots more. You can see a lot of wildlife like squirrels and deer, as well as visiting the zoo. The park is very well kept.
  • Went to Dublin Zoo ,expensive , a few big no shows such as lions at the start had me thinking Jurassic Park.Then you see the constant upgrades they are making and it gets a hell of a lot better . The kids loved the sealion area and we loved the orangutans climbing the rope over our head. Well worth a visit
