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.

A nice mainly flat walk as opposed to a hike with a combination of trail and tarmac path but plenty of options in terms of time from 1 hour to 3 hours all within a beautiful park

Lovely walk through the park. Park a raincoat as you can get 4 seasons in one day

It is a beautiful park and we had a great walk. Saw the war Memorial, presidential palace, an old munitions fort, and plenty of trees and flowers. Plus, in the morning we saw a bunch of the famous deer in the park.

it would be a good trail if it's on track, you can't go through the president house as it's telling me to
