We saw the Celtic cross that marks the spot where Pope Saint John Paul II did mass and stopped by the park garden and museum.

Went there for a picnic (the picnic tables aren't easy to find, they're in the western part of the park), saw some deers, that was pretty cool.

This is a massive park. The two others and I saw the small slice of the park by the zoo and the Wellington Monument. This is a beautiful park with room to relax, sun bathe, or to play a game of pick up whatever.

What an awesome green space right in the city! Lots of room to play, relax, or just "be". Choose an open space or a tree filled space, it is all gorgeous. Perfect for pic nics.

We hardly scratch the surface of this park. It's a huge place and we only saw a small part of this. It's a massive park so you do need some time to explore. It's a great place to just hangout for the afternoon and family-friendly.

This was a wonderful way to spend time. We grabbed a bit at a coffee shop which also sold organic local produce and enjoyed the gardens. Beautiful and relaxing.

We only saw a small part of the park as apparently it is huge. However, what we saw was beautiful and well maintained. In particular, we went to the zoo in the park and to a lovely little café opposite the zoo.

We walked from Kilmainham Gaol to the park on a very hot day. Lovely but lengthy walk through neighborhoods, so when we saw the obelisk we were relieved and ready for some shade and a chance to sit down on the lawn. No such luck....More

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.
