This park has everything you would want to spend time on. It has football matches going on, pole matches, a great zoo, Farmleigh House and the Farmers Market. If you want to relax there are loads of fantastic walks and whe you are finished go straight to the "Hole in the Wall" pub for refreshment.

This beautiful park is a fantastic place to relax in the sun, or for the children to have some fun. This is the perfect place.

Phoenix Park is such a beautiful place. So much to do and see. I would highly recommend a visit to the Visitors Centre and Farmleigh. The monthly Farmers Markets there are interesting and tasty.

The sun was shining brightly which brought many visitors to the park, on foot, on bikes and in cars and tour busses.

It is really impossible to get a sense of just how immense this park is until you get there and try to walk anywhere. If you really want to see the grounds, spend a couple of euro and rent a...
