Days Out in Dublin
Go Wild in the Phoenix Park!
Dublin is home to the largest enclosed park in all of Europe, and it so happens that the Phoenix Park is full of plenty of things to do with the whole family. A little known fact is that the Phoenix Park Visitor Centre puts on workshops every Sunday morning from 10.00-12.30 and they’re free of charge! The workshops have various themes ranging from nature awareness, history and heritage to arts and crafts and are suitable from kids aged 5-12. The Phoenix Park is filled with sites of great historical and cultural significance. From the President’s official residence to Farmleigh House. Wild deer also roam the park, and while visitors to the park are required to keep their distance from the deer, you can still get a great look at those magnificent creatures. Also, if animals are your thing you should definitely pay a visit to the next place on our list…
