A NATURAL HAVEN IN IRELAND’S CAPITAL

Phoenix Park is an urban park in Dublin, lying about 2 kilometres from the city centre. The park is one of the largest enclosed recreational spaces within a European capital.

With a larger area than all of Dublin’s city centre, there is plenty to see and visit in this park. A major attraction is the Dublin Zoo, located on the eastern side. Founded in 1831, it is the largest zoo in all of Ireland.

Nearby, you can visit the residence of the President of Ireland. Named Áras an Uachtaráin, the official and private home was built in 1751. The residence is open to the public on Saturdays only. Tickets are issued free of charge on a first-come-first-served basis from the Phoenix Park Visitor Centre

A popular way to get around the park is to hire bikes. There are over 14 kilometres (9 miles) of paths to explore.

The park is easily accessible from the city centre via the Dublin Luas (the tram system) and the Phoenix Park Shuttle Bus. Between 7am and 7pm, the shuttle bus leaves from Parkgate Street at Heuston Station to reach the Phoenix Park.
