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.

  • To see the whole Park one should rent a bike. This park is huge with a lot to offer. The presidents house along with the US embassy and the Dublin Zoo is in the park.

  • 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.
  • If you are looking for a place for physical activity, contact with nature, beauty and taking beautiful photos, this is the place. a huge park, full of animal life and very well maintained. I enjoyed the experience, a pity it was so cold 🥶 @arnonlustosa
