About these ratings

When the hustle and bustle of the city gets to be too much, seek refuge in Phoenix Park, Europe's largest public green space. Spanning three miles (and encompassing more than 1,700 acres), Phoenix Park features plenty of lush green lawns, shady wooded areas and cool, clean lakes. This is also a great place to visit if you're traveling with kids: the Dublin Zoo -- the third-oldest zoo in Europe -- calls this park home, as does the Farmleigh House, a large Edwardian estate with a working farm, a food market and a house chock-full of period furniture and decorations. If you're not sure where to begin, head to the Phoenix Park Visitor's Center. Housed in a 17th-century castle on the northern edge of the park, the visitor's center has plenty of information on the park's flora, wildlife and attractions.

You'll find Phoenix Park west of the city center, just north of Kilmainham Gaol. It is open all day every day, and you don't have to pay to wander. However, attractions found within the park do charge entrance fees. For more information, check out the park's website.
