Even on a wet day Phoenix Park is enchanting - lots of joggers and walkers. As you walk through, you are able to see not only the impressive residence of Michael Higgins where the light stays on in the middle window, 24/7 to welcome all - a tradition started by Mary Robinson, previous President of Ireland. Also, the large residence... More

We saw the Fallow Deer, the Irish President's residence and the American Embassy, 3 times, whilst on the red bus tour. They were wet days, otherwise we would have got off the bus and explored/picnicked.

Its easy to get to my bus or the Luas public transport is great here. If your looking for a... More

I first discovered this park during a trip on an open top bus tour. The history of the park is beautifully described on the tour, so I won't spoil it for you! Contained within the grounds is Dublin Zoo. I have not yet visited the Zoo, but once I do, it will be reviewed! Beside the "stop" in the Park... More

Huge park. Seems well kept, with large number of very old trees. The old gas-lit street lamps were superb. The President's and US ambassador's residences were splendid.

I haven't been to this zoo for over 40 years and it has really changed with a very successful captive breeding programme Plenty to see and most animals in near natural habitats. Visited on a half term Saturday and the excitement of the very many children was infectious. Plenty of facilities, cafes restaurants drink stations and toilets scattered around which... More

No trip to Dublin is complete without a trip to the beautiful Phoenix Park. You can visit the Wellington Monument, The Zoo and many other attractions while visiting here. And why do it on foot when you can rent a bike. If you like photography then you may want to watch out for the Deer which can be found easily.... More

Great park to wander through, see the deers and the residence of the Irish president. I was amazed at the size of the park!

A nice big expanse of green space to get away from the centre of town. The grounds are well kept and there is plenty to see even in February. In full bloom I can imagine it is even more impressive.
