Great place for parents with children, couples, friends, etc.
There is plenty of space and various activities are available. Playing soccer, cricket, baseball, cycling or simply walks.
You may also visit the pet farm, wander through the arboretum and rose garden.
Even bring your dog so it can share the joy.

Rather than fight crowds in Downtown Dublin, we spent the last day of our vacation wandering around the park. There were numerous activities that day, including football practices and a fun run. Also found the fish pond, petting zoo, and ultimately enjoyed the walk.

The park has many attractions for all ages:
Playground, Fairy Wood and Petting farm for kids.
Rose garden, arboretum,fishing lakes, duck ponds and nature walks for enthusiasts.
Cricket pitches, Baseball Rounds and football/rugby/GAA pitches for the sporty types.
There is a small cafe up at the fishing lakes and generally and ice-cream van at the playground.
The park itself is extensive with a camping and motorhome village on the N7 side and allotments to the west near the sports grounds.
Throughout the park you can find exercise equipment also.
It is within walking distance of Clondalkin village and any of the hotels in the area.
I absolutely recommend a visit.

I visit this park at least three times per week. It's a relatively new park. There are the ruins of an old monastery within. There is a lake which supposedly has fish inside. Visitors to the park are free to bring their own fishing rod and attempt to catch some fish. We tried this on successfully. The park Also boasts A cycle track, A petting zoo, and an area where dogs can be unleashed and run around and socialise with other dogs. There are many playing fields in this park including cricket and baseball. There are also numerous football fields. The children's playground is very large and well appointed. Unfortunately many of the parents disobeyed the rules and smoke openly in the playground area. I have reported this to the park wardens who seemed nonplussed and reluctant to respond or act upon my complaint. There is also a coffee shop located beside the fish pond. I've not eaten anything there nor have I bought coffee there so I can't remark any further on that.

I've known Corkagh Park since I was a child growing up in the area. I knew it as a private estate before it was owned by the South Dublin County Council.
It is a wonderful Park with something for everyone:- Sports fields, Nature Walks, Arboretum, Children's Playground, Children's Farm Animals Zoo, Fishing Lakes, Coffee dock, Duck Pond, Open Spaces, Caravan Park ( Camac Valley) etc.
If you are visiting the Clondalkin area it is very worthwhile to visit the Park. It's an easy walk from the Green Isle Hotel. There is a bus stop outside the Caravan Park entrance.
It us a longer walk from the Newlands Cross Maldron Hotel. You could always get a taxi from the hotel and call a taxi when you've finished your visit.
If your driving, it's a short drive away from anywhere in Clondalkin.
