Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    A gorgeous oasis in the heart of Dublin. Great place for a picnic or just chilling. Always a pleasure for a stroll, just across the road feom beautiful Grafton Street

    This is the largest park in Europe - very similar to Richmond Park, London in scale. If you have mobility issues, there isn't a problem because there are pavements and tarmac walkways plus car parks throughout the park, especially near landmarks like the Papal Cross and Zoo. But obviously the city council can't tarmac the entire park. The Papal Cross was not my favourite landmark - just preferred the scenery. And see if you can spot a small white gravel cross on the grass near the President of Ireland's residence which marks the spot where a double murder happened 140 years ago.

    Went to Farmleigh today for a walk in the grounds, plenty of parking and choice of nice walks in the grounds. I often go here for a walk on my lunch hour as I work in a dealership on the Navan Road. This is magical at Christmas and lovely all year long. We had a snack in the Boathouse after our walk. It a gem in the Phoenix Park. There are tours of the house too, you can book online.
    I look the Sunken Garden, Walled Garden and the Clock Tower. Loads to do and see here.

    This garden is quite stunning, built in the victorian times, it has something for everyone, from a waterfall to a maze, definitely worth a visit.

    Very interesting to see the tide going out on the river. Lots of bridges going over and went over several during my trip. Run along the river one morning and it was lovely.

    Nice park to walking around, not very big in scale but nice and peaceful.

    Lots of locals walking dogs and exercising which adds to it, a little out from the main city so would give it a miss if you are short on time or not in the area

    The beautiful Garden of Remembrance is "Dedicated to those who gave their lives in the cause of Irish Freedom ". The cross like colorful pool, and the benches along the walls - invite you to relax calmly for a few minutes. Do not miss the "Children of Lir" statue, symbolizing the rebirth of the Irish Nation. Interesting.

    It’s a famous place in Sandycove where people of all ages go to swim pretty much every day of the year.

    Visited today with 2 adults and 3 kids (13,4 & 2). We were there for 2 hours in total. 2 year old walked/was carried to the smallest peak. 4 year old climbed to the top with the odd boost over high rocks. Kids would need to be able to climb up in front of you confidently, and not be scared of heights coming down. Views at the top are fabulous! Some parts are dusty so you'd need to hold hands with smallies. I saw a 3 month old in a carrier and dogs too. I'd suggest bringing a bag with some water, snacks, sweets, and some plasters just in case. Would recommend and will return.

    Lovely park with lots of space. It was pretty popular when we were there- mostly as a hangout spot (understandable since it was a beautiful day).

    This was one of the highlight of our Ireland trip, partly because we had a good weather day. Train station is near the harbor. Trail to the cliffs starts at the end of main street. Restaurants all over. Cliff walk is busy but beautiful. We went past the lighthouse and past the busy part of the trail which we enjoyed, but we did not realize how far the trail goes because the map does not show distance. We were 3 and a half hours out and ten miles from our start before we decided to return the Carraugh (sp?) Road and then still had over an hour to get back to town. The visitor center did not explain how that the end of the loop around the penisula included a very steep hill (where we decided to take the road back to Houth.) Wish this review would let me post pictures as it was very scenic. Definitely get out of Dublin to see the coast. Later we went to the west coast, but this was just as pretty for the wildflowers and seabirds up close.
