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.

Amazing park. A brilliant amenity to have on your doorstep. Loads of different places to go and things to do depending on mood, time of year etc. Lovely to be able to see the deer so often but it would be great if people would stop feeding them constantly!
The park is huge and it is right in the middle of the city. It is a great spot for running and I went running there several times. Also nice for biking and all kinds of outdoor activities. It is also perfect to enjoy a sunny day and relax or to hangout with friends. And there is a zoo inside the park, which is paid, but is good.
