mostly parkish with huge elements of park themed facilities such as trees and grass, I found it too parky and prefer my parks to have a lot less parkishness about them, if you like your parks to be mostly green I would consider this place for its all round parky ways

Went to the park to have breakfast in their tea room which was a little veranda right outside the the zoo. Lovely little spot for tea and scones. The park is beautiful and well maintanined. Lovely spot for a picnic with family.

This place is wonderful. If you want to go for a peaceful walk, run or even cycle its definately the place to go. We rented bikes (€5 each) at the main gates & cycled our way around right up to the old Guiness Family home. Views were breathtaking you would never feel as if you are bang in the middle... More

Phoenix park is huge and yet so close to the city - Dublin Zoo is here which is great but at a cost whereas the park is free and you can bring a picnic and have a great day - I did the Great Spear 10k run through it and loved the scenery - the deers are so lovely and... More
