Saw the park on a HO-HO tour. Beautiful park with large areas of flat open grassy areas. All kinds of recreation going on and a zoo onsite as well as the president’s home and American Ambassador’s home.

This park is amazing. A lush vast open area. We didn't see any of the deer that are living in the park but hope to next time. Easily accessible by tour bus/hop-on/off. You can rent bikes to see the entire grounds.

Phoenix Park is a large park to the west of Dublin. The park contains many important and historical buildings including The Presidents House, The American Ambassadors Residence and a castle. There is also a large herd of deer in the park, that are quite tame.

Amazingly big walled park just on the edge of the city with wonderful avenue lined by trees. The Irish president has his official residence here and the Dublin Zoo is next door. A great place to walk, run, cycle, watch for deer and other wildlife.

The Dublin Zoo at Phoenix Park was fantastic. We spent about 3 hours there, including lunch. There is a restaurant near the exit with great sandwiches where you can sit and eat while watching meerkats. It was great!

Yes, the area of the Park known as the “Fifteen Acres” ( actually it’s much bigger than that) is designated for team ball sports with pitches laid out.

I think there are segway tours run from the tourist office beside the Tea Rooms, maybe contact them for details. I've seen them in groups of 6 or 7. Good luck, have a great time.
