ST STEPHEN'S GREEN
The park provides an oasis of green calm in the middle of a bustling city. There are a large number of important sculptural monuments to Irish history within the gates of the park.
Many species of birds and plants also call the park their home. It is a tradition to feed the ducks here, as a result of a ceasefire during the Irish Revolution. Both the Irish Republican revolutionaries and the British Army called a ceasefire so the greenskeeper could go in and feed the prized ducks which lived in the pond.
Public facilities at St Stephen’s Green Park include a playground and a garden for the visually impaired.
Phoenix Park is one of the largest urban parks in a European capital and is an easy walk from the city centre. There have been a group of fallow deer here in the park since the 17th century.
Take a few hours and wander off into the depths of the park and see if you can find them. Spotting deer in the park is one of the best things to do in Dublin.
Keep in mind that the park is huge (707 hectares/1,750 acres), and even though there are around 500 deer living here, finding them can be difficult.
