Great park to relax take in the Zoo or visit the President for Tea (or at least the Tea House beside the Zoo). The Hop On Hop Off Green Bus goes right in the park so take a ride and visit the 700 deer on the property.

Massive is the only way to describe this place. Home of Dublin zoo and the presidents residence. Wild deer rom the park and are approachable will even allow you to rub them. spend the day visit the zoo and take a picnic.

We walked all around Phoenix Park, past the Wellington obelisk, the Presidential palace, and we visited the zoo. Michael Fitzalan, the writer of the historical fiction 'Remember the Fifth of November', invited us to Dublin to celebrate the publication of his latest book, 'One', set in an English prep school. He let us in on a secret and that is... More

Beautiful park with rose garden, lovely walks, and the dear are running freely. Ruins on the grounds and you find a new spot every time. Child friendly, many different species of birds, rabbits, hairs and squirrels. The park is so big, you will always find a quiet spot of your choice. Keep going back as it is beautiful all year...

We visited the park by way of the Dudlin Hop-on-Hop-off tourist bus. Very convenient. The park is so green and goes on for miles. Great for hiking and taking a breather from the city.

I have quite often travelled to Dublin and always on business related activities. This is the first time I go to Phoenix Park which I later learned is the biggest public park in Europe. I had a three hour walk around the park and enjoyed the scenery, the various paths and the environment. Yet another pleasurable activity in Dublin!

Love, love , love Phoenix park - honestly Dublin's best feature. If it's a segway tours, a romantic stroll, a tandem bike ride and picnic - or a cup of tea and rocky road in the visitors centre. There is something of everyone.

Phoenix Park has lots and lots of serene park space. There are lots of trails, water features, and much more. It is a short walk from Heuston station, and there is more walking or running to be had in the park. The Dublin Zoo is also embedded in the park. It's a great change of pace from the busy city.
