    This serene park was across from our hotel. We crossed it in the morning (gates open at 7:30 and close at dusk!) and on our way back after a busy day touring. Winding down our day it was literally a breath of fresh air. Enjoy the paths, ponds and people as you stroll through.

    The park has a wide open area where deers roam freely. You can feed them with grass and leaves. It's a fairytale experience. Overall, the park is very big, it also has wide simple areas for jogging and walking, areas with trees, a tea house, benches, areas where people walk their dogs and also a zoo (which I can't review as I haven't visited). The park is very simple, unpretentious and extremely wide. Definitely worth a visit if you love animals, especially if they are free and not in a zoo.

    This is very well worth visiting - extensive gardens all very well laid out, very interesting and enjoyable. Need most of a day to do the whole site justice.

    More expensive than other zoos I've been at - but you can see where the money goes! It's a beautifulmsoace, well looked after. And they partner with so many eco charities and support loads of great programmes, so happy to support it.

    The red pandas were my standout moment.

    I had a day off to day and after lunch decided to go for a walk. Decided to go to Farmleigh and see it in its Spring splendour .
    It was magnificent and the smells of the flowers and plants in the walled garden were amazing. The whole estate is a credit to the OPW who do a fabulous job of maintaining and improving Farmleigh

    Garden might be small but it was brilliant. The only reason why it's not an excellent is that water cascades/fountains weren't working which dimmed my hope a bit for this place. I still enjoyed a walk around immensly. It really does feels like a sanctuary in the middle of city with a small rest it. I loved to see art class, usual strollers & people like me all around enjoying being out d about. Honestly, worth making a detour and coming here if you like finding your zen or greenery.

    Although the source is only 20 miles from Dublin, the river actually snakes it’s way 82 miles to get to Dublin. It splits the city in two and has 24 bridges. It is tidal so there are spells during the day when the river bed is exposed, much to the delight of the scavenging seagulls.

    Spent a hour in the gardens while waiting for our gaol tour. Nice place to find a comfortable bench and enjoy the quite beauty.

    When in Dublin you must take time out from the usual attractions and climb to the highest point overlooking Dublin bay. it really does blow away the cobwebs and the sights are stunning.

    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.

    My husband and I are active hikers and needed to be away from the city. This was the perfect escape. Only a few hours of hiking to be had, and it lead you back into town where you could pick up a snack or lunch.
    The locals were welcoming and talked to us with great interest. We could see the ferry coming back from the UK and the cargo ships coming in. We also saw seals playing in the water. One of the highlights of our trip for sure!

    Really nice memorial garden that is well maintained. Sits in the grounds of St. Patricks Church on Harbour Road. The memorial is easy to find on the right hand side of the grounds. Peaceful.

    Perfect place for a Walk and Coffee with friends, couples or alone.

    People are always friendly and move aside when walking due to COVID.

    Great part of Dublin to visit.

    This a lovely wee park nestling beside St Patrick's Cathedral. The park has been well maintained and is an ideal place to chill out and enjoy the view of the Cathedral

    Urban Jungle - that's it! Located in convinient Sandyford area - Dublin's south-side suburbs (best way from center - tram / green line, or Dublin Bus), park is ideal for family visits with small children. In amid there is a huge playground for a kuds, and a lot's of green pitches for football, rugby or other field sports. There is very decent coffee place with nice selection of pastries on site. If you are looking for family picnic, two large supermarkts are just across the street. You'll find also small botanical garden with several types of caged birds too. Very convinient, with long walk paths, lakes and sport terrains.
