Phoenix Park

Set across 1,750 acres, the Phoenix Park is the largest enclosed public park in any capital city in Europe.

It was originally formed as a royal hunting park in the 1660s and opened to the public in 1747 and a large herd of fallow deer still remain to this day. The Park is also home to Dublin Zoo,  Áras an Uachtaráin – the official residence of the President of Ireland, the Farmleigh estate, numerous monuments including the huge Wellington Memorial,  Ashtown Castle and Visitor Centre and the Victorian flower gardens of the People’s Garden.
