The park is huge, and we didn't have a map so we had a hard time finding anything at first. People we asked directions from were friendly, though, and eventually we ended up near the zoo. We rode a children's Choo Choo train which took us to the play area / interpretive center / gardens and showed us where the... More

A huge green space in the middle of Dublin. We went in the zoo and had a lovely day. Phoenix Park is huge. A lovely walk for families and there are even deer to be seen if you're lucky.

Fabulous park - there was a polo match and a cricket match on when we visited which was a quirky experience - more like the Home Counties. Only negative was the one we experienced all over Dublin - you can't pre book tours for anything and so didn't get to see the President's home because the tickets had all been... More

Beautiful gardens!! Nice for an afternoon of a picnic at the park... or a nice walk. Weather was perfect on the day that I went, so it really was a nice experience.

Twice the size of New York's Central Park. (1752 acres) Impressive indeed. The park's main entrance is close to Houston Station, on the other side of the Liffey. When you drive in the park (yes, you can drive into the park, there are several parkings, available) over the main avenue and you see the grass fields left and right, you... More

The biggest enclosed park in Europe. It contains the Dublin Zoo, the 15 acres, the American Ambassadors residence, The Popes Cross, The Residence of the Irish President, The Wellington Monument, the polo grounds and many many other sights. Most of the hop on hop off buses will take you up here, but in order to see and enjoy it you... More

Amazingly large park. Easily accessible by public transport. We rented bikes at the Parkgate street entrance. The best way to see the park.

From where we stayed in Castleknock we drove through Phoenix Park to get into Dublin. It is a beautiful Park and you could really spend quite a long time there and let the kids just run. I took the opportunity to show them the American Embassy, which is in the park. They thought that it was very interesting to see... More

Beautiful park - the biggest in Europe I think - Houses Dublin Zoo (beautiful- deserving of a visit) and many other places and things of interest. Very spead out with beautiful walks and parks where it is not uncommon to have a wild deer, or a herd, pass close by.

I liked it overall, but I disliked that there was a lot of poops in the grass. But I saw a deer close so I assume it was its fault.
