Phoenix Park

The biggest park in Europe

Whether you’re spending a lovely day out in the sun or going for a walk with your umbrella and raincoat, Phoenix Park – located just over a mile from the centre of Dublin – absolutely has to be on your list of places to visit. Over 700 hectares of space, it is thought to be the largest urban park in Europe; and to give you an idea of its size, it is twice as big as Central Park in New York, but has been exploited less by filmmakers. You can explore its vast expanse on bicycles, which can be hired in the park itself, and you’ll be captivated not only by the breathtaking landscapes of lakes and trees, but also by the deer which graze freely in the park and will suddenly step across your path without warning. One morning won’t be enough to see the whole park, and you also have the option of getting on one of the open-top buses which take tourists on a circuit inside the park.
