This place is gorgeous! Great to walk around and relax and enjoy the day. Windy up there, so keep that in mind. Just beautiful!

This place a paradise in a busy palace. We drove through the park on our tour bus one evening. It was a nice way to see miles of beautiful scenery. With additional time, it would have been lovely to spend a day picnicking or enjoying further scenery!

I ended up walking far more than was good for me (about 16 miles) the day I visited Phoenix Park just because there was so much to see. This park is well laid out, and has so many nooks and crannies that it's easy to while away an entire day here. The Victorian Kitchen Gardens near the visitor center were... More

Though one of Europe's smaller capitals with just over 1 million inhabitants, Dublin is home to the continent's biggest enclosed parks at 1,752 acres. The beauty of this as I discovered today on a balmy Summer Saturday was that you can be with friends in a capital city park yet feel you are almost - almost- alone. Not the same... More

We only walked a few acres of it, but what we saw was beautiful and well-manicured. There was nothing to complain about. A beautiful walk; a great way to get exercise while on vacation.

Phoenix Park is the largest enclosed park in Europe and definitely worth a little walk around. Me and a friend had a short walk here and it was very peaceful and picturesque with play parks for the children and a little pond etc. I believe the zoo is also within the park. Would recommend, especially on a nice Sunny day!

This is a truly magnificent park which houses one the worlds oldest zoos, the American Ambassador's residence and the residence for the Irish President. It is a huge park and worth a visit to relax after sightseeing around Dublin. Most tourist buses stop here.
