Phoenix Park Tours

Spanning 1752 acres just north of the River Liffey, Dublin’s Phoenix Park is one of the largest walled city parks in Europe. Established as a royal deer park for King Charles II in 1662, a herd of wild fallow deer have lived in the park grounds ever since. Look out for them in the meadow area known as Fifteen Acres. 

Phoenix Park is full of tree-lined avenues, woods, and open spaces dotted with wildflowers. The park’s Victorian People's Flower Gardens are a popular visit, and next to The Walled Garden and Ashtown Castle there’s a cafe that serves fresh, organic food. There’s also a Victorian tea room on Phoenix Park’s Chesterfield Avenue.

In summer, the park hosts open-air concerts and the Phoenix Park Motor Races every August. A popular spot for a picnic, the park is home to Dublin Zoo which receives over a million visitors a year, and there are bikes available for hire. Featured prominently in James Joyce’s novel, Finnegans Wake, Phoenix Park has its own cricket and polo grounds, and since the late 18th century, the residencies of the Irish president and US ambassador have also been here. 

Practical Info

Open year round, to get to the park from the city center there are regular trains from Connolly Station to Phoenix Park Station.
