Phoenix Park and Dublin


We are travelling to Dublin 2 adults & 2 children aged 14 & 12 & 1 well behaved dog and will be spending a day there in August.

I was considering spending a couple of hours looking around the park and would be grateful if you could help me plan my daymy questions are:

Is there plenty of parking at the park & is there a charge?

Can you take dogs into the park?

We were also thinking of getting the city sightseeing bus and my question is can you get on it at the park and do they take dogs on board the bus?

If you cannot take dogs onto the bus we will have to plan our own sightseeing for the day.

Please let me know me know what the parking is like in Dublin? and the must does in the limited time we will have. My daughter's also like shopping.

I'm not sure of the Bye-Laws in the P Park which may/may not permit dogs - there are wild deer there! but it is huge!!! See http://www.phoenixpark.ie/ where you should find all the info. Parking in it is free to my knowledge.

Parking in Dublin is expensive in the multi-storey car parks.

Dublin Bus [Green HoHo buses] say "Animals other than guide dogs are carried on Dublin bus services at the discretion of the driver. According the by-laws governing Dublin Bus, you cannot bring an animal onto the bus if an authorised person (i.e., driver or inspector) asks you not to do so". So be sweet to the driver and have Fido well behaved and muzzled and ask ask nicely. Don't know about the Red HoHo buses.

Hi MikeMike

No problem taking dogs into the Phoenix Park. At a certain time of the year some sections are closed to dogs due to Deer in foal, however, these areas will be clearly marked so no need to worry.
