Relaxing day out

We visited just to kill time but it is large enough to spend the day and includes Dublin zoo. Great that you can drive into park and park almost anywhere

Good place for lots of green space. I went running around the park; it's huge. The zoo and monuments are also fun to see. Great for families.

There is so much to do in the Phoenix Park. The playground and visitor centre area is great for kids to play, have a picnic or get some lunch. Lots of parking. Very family friendly.

The Phoenix park is my walking place each day. Its peaceful and green and safe. Besides walking you can cycle, visit the zoo, Farmleigh house or just relax with a picnic. Its a must for visitors and the hop on hop off bus goes into it too.

Rent a bike and cycle around this huge park. If you like rugby, voleyball, soccer, it's a good option as well or just chill out with your friends or your dog. Go walk further and see the deers, bring some fruits with you and feed them. Have an Ice Cream there!

this is the largest Park in Europe, if not the World, and really does have everything you could want. Apparently it is 7 miles around it and houses the President of Ireland and the American Consul. Within the park there are cricket pitches, football and even a Polo Ground. You can watch any sport being played. The park is well... More
