Wilderness in the middle of a big city, Phoenix Park features tree-lined avenues and vast grasslands and is home to a herd of wild deer. Encompassing over 700 hectares (1,700 acres), the park serves as one of the largest walled urban parks in Europe. The site includes a zoo, cricket and polo grounds, and several 18th century mansions, including one serving as the official residence of the country's president. To see the best of this big park quickly, rent a bike and ride all or part of a 14 km (8 mi) long network of traffic-free lanes. You can also hop on the tourist train that stops at the park's Victorian garden, noted for its ornamental lake, playgrounds, and picnic areas.

Loved the visitor's centre and it has a great playground for children. A lovely spot for a picnic and some beautiful food available in the coffee shop also. Would highly recommend here for a good day out
Do I need to explain? Amazing massive park. Beautiful. I still haven't seen all of Phoenix Park though.
