Providing a tranquil counterpoint to the hustle and bustle of our cities and a choice destination for anyone with horticultural interest, our award-winning parks are among the continent’s finest.
Dublin’s exceptionally scenic Phoenix Park is the largest enclosed public park in any capital city in Europe, at more than 700 hectares in area. Many of our parks rival it for beauty, incorporating such enchanting features as ornamental lakes, rockwork, formal lawns and woodland trails – not to mention the beautiful plant collections, often including rare and delicate specimens.
There are miles of enchanting walks and cycle routes to explore in Ireland’s world-class public parks. You might even catch a free concert or another of our special events.
