What are the best parks in Dublin

They call it the Emerald Isle for a reason: in a nation where green landscapes are the norm, Dublin parks, gardens and hiking areas hold their own ground.  Perfect for getting a bit of exercise while on holiday or taking a much-needed stroll to decompress from the stress of international transit, sites like the National Botanic Gardens and Merrion Square in the city are must-see additions to your itinerary. Breathe deep of the Irish air, head outside, and immerse yourself in the green.

Phoenix Park

One of the largest recreational spaces in any European city with a whopping 707 hectares, Phoenix Park is home to the Dublin Zoo, the Papal Cross, the Wellington Testimonial, the Deerfield Residence, and Magazine Fort. You read that correctly – all of this exists in the same park, and there's actually more. Save a whole day (at least) and see it all for yourself.
