I took the opportunity to cycle around the park and there is a lot to see, from monuments to gardens to the possibility of wild deer. There is also Dublin zoo located in the park as well as Aras an uachtarain.

The park itself is free. I believe the zoo charges. Make sure you have deer food with you, they are used to get food from people and you are allowed to feed them. Hope that helps, have a great trip.
