We went here on our recent trip to Dublin and as Zoo's go, it has a bit of everything. A lot bigger than we expected and had a lot more variety than expected. The only downside was that we went out of season and most animals were in doors. Also due to bird flew, all the birds had been taken... More

From relaxing afternoon, to getting some exercise this is the place for it. You could spend all day walking around and enjoying the nature, or join the crowd relaxing on the statues. Either way I would say its a need to visit location in Dublin.

I've been there many times and enjoyed every visit. It's a large urban park, with plenty of walks, running/cycling tracks, playgrounds, cafes, zoo, etc. Suitable for everyone.

After visiting the zoo we had a wander around the rest of the park and were amazed at how big it was it's massive. From going on the Citysightseeing tour bus we know that Central Park in New York can fit in it twice so that's some perspective for you. We didn't make it all the way around but definitely... More

We live quite close to the park and often bring our dog there for a walk. There are so many sections to go too. You can hire a bike close to the main gate. Farmleigh house is worth a visit and there's a café there to have a cup of tea. You can also see the deer there. There is... More

What did the English ever do for us? Well there is the Phoenix Park. You could easily get lost in here. Plenty of wide open spaces. Dublin Zoo. Farmleigh is worth a visit - even when there is nothing on. There is now a visitors centre with a Cafe, and a great playground for the kids. If all that is... More

Both open space and history all in one place. Good for leisure, sport and recreation. Also some historical sites within its precinct.
