Phoenix Park is gorgeous, in every time of year. It offers a little something for everybody, especially for these who’s like to escape busy city life. The monuments and wildlife make a visit surprising.

Nice to have such open space near a city centre. Lots to explore and see. Some parts feel tired and in need of a face lift.

Perfect for the serene walk in the nature, loved the scenery.Not that far from the city centre, it is a place where one could spend most of the afternoon on a sunny day. The park is so large we didn't even see it all but I am sure it's full of hidden gems.

If you are passing by, stop for a photo. It is far from away. That's it. Go to the Wellignton Munument too.

I love the open space, lots of places to walk and let the dogs run a bit. Though mind the deer, it's their park, so I keep away from the deer when I have the dogs with me. The visitors centre is situated close to a children's playground which is ideal for having a wee treat on a day out... More

The best park I have ever visited in Europe. Love the deers and the squirels. I would not say it is a place to make picnics because people simply don't care about throwing the rubbish away in the right place. However, it is a great place to do some sport, like running or playing footballl.
