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.
the Phoenix Park is many things to many people- Home of President Michael D. Higgins, home of the American ambassador, site of the Wellington memorial (yes he was Irish and was not English) football pitches, cricket pitches, GAA pitches, polo pitches etc.

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.
If you leave here, you know that you need to go out some days, relax in quiet surrounding. Thanks to Phoenix Park that is just a few minutes from City Center, you can get it. Big area, lots of different parts will let you to...More
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.
took me a few minutes to find the opening to the park. Early morning and I was the only person there. Told by nearby hotel staff that it was safe. Lovely statues and nice walkways. nice water features.
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 there are designated football pitches, they are in a part of the park known as the fifteen acres, but if you would just like a kick around with your son and a few friends anywhere in the park is ok. just make sure you keep well away from the main road as you would not like the ball to roll into any traffic, safety first, and that won't be a hard thing to achieve since the park has approx 1760 acres, enjoy, Michael.
