Dublin zoo


Just wondering if anyone knows how long it would take to get from the Clarion hotel IFSC in Dublin to Phoenix park. Is it walking distance or is a taxi a better idea?!

Thanks so much,

You could get the Luas to Heuston Station and it is then a 10 min walk from there.

It's not walkable!

You could get the luas as far as Heuston Station and walk from there. It's about a 15 min pleasant walk from Heuston Station :-)

Well, it is walkable. Just depending on what your tolerence if for walking. On a nice afternoon, if you are fit and like walking. I think it is very doable, and a pleasant walk.

But if the weather is bad, ot you don't prefer that sort of thing the bus/taxi would be preferable.

Katy, the LUAS stops right behind the Clarion IFSC, so I would go along with the other suggestions and get the tram to Heuston and walk from there.
