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.

  • Fantastic park, it's absolutely stunning. Very well maintained. Lovely place for a walk at any time of the year. Parking can be tricky at times, but there's plenty available at off-peak times. Dublin, you're beautiful.
  • A beautiful way to spend a few hours. There is so much to see and it is a gorgeous park! It was great for an afternoon stroll on our first day in Dublin. So much greenery and history all in one.
