An off the beaten track walking tour of Dublin in Phoenix Park. Celebrating 350 years, Phoenix Park still reverberates with Victorian sensibilities, pomposity and power, medieval, majestic, and macabre, histories grim and gruesome. In this gentile setting, not even the name is as it seems, the park has not risen from the ashes, the name is derived from Fion Uisce, "clear water." In Phoenix Park, nothing is as it seems, and all is worth investigating.
