#3 of 57 in Parks in Dublin
Wilderness in the middle of a big city, Phoenix Park features tree-lined avenues and vast grasslands and is home to a herd of wild deer. Encompassing over 700 hectares (1,700 acres), the park serves as one of the largest walled urban parks in Europe. The site includes a zoo, cricket and polo grounds, and several 18th century mansions, including one serving as the official residence of the country's president. To see the best of this big park quickly, rent a bike and ride all or part of a 14 km (8 mi) long network of traffic-free lanes. You can also hop on the tourist train that stops at the park's Victorian garden, noted for its ornamental lake, playgrounds, and picnic areas.

  • Really enjoyed the experience of the lights, my three daughters and my granddaughter brought me great to spend time with them, pity is was one of the worst nights of the year but it didn't take away the enjoyment of it. If I could make a comment to the organisers, why don't you put signs up showing you which way to go we backtracked a few times.
  • Amazing large park with a brilliant zoo. A fabulous place for all the family. A lot of renovations and investments make this place first class.
