Just two miles (3km) west of the city centre, Phoenix Park
offers peace and quiet from the buzz of the city. It is considered
the largest urban park in Europe boasting splendid landscaped
gardens, ornamental lakes and large grasslands. It is the perfect
environment for runners, walkers and sports enthusiasts who flock
here to enjoy the park's facilities. Fallow deer can be seen
browsing in the leafy woodland and it's a great place for watching
the world go by. Within the park is the residence of the president
of Ireland, Aras an Uachtarain, and Dublin Zoo.
