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.

Phoenix Park is reportedly more then twice the size of New York's Central Park, so it's not a park you can have a quick stroll around and see it all. I was there for about an hour, and moved around quickly - and I mean quickly - by foot to see many of the top attractions. Here's a quick walking... More

my wife and I spent the whole day walking this park and did not see everything. There is a lot of history here and you must see Ashton castle which was only recently discovered when they tore down the building that had surrounded it.
