The Phoenix Park is very close and well worth a visit. One of Europe’s largest city parks, it is home to a herd of some 500 Fallow Deer.
A number of significant buildings share the park including Farmleigh House and the home of the Irish President, Aras an Uachtarain, where Winston Churchill lived his early childhood.

Dublin Zoo occupies 28 hectares of the park and is a major attraction for visitors and Dubliners alike.
St Stephens Green at the heart of the city is visited by more than 8 million people every year. It is an oasis at any time, but is especially pleasant during summer months when artists display their paintings around the railings.
