Hundreds of wild deer roam the charming lake at the Furry Glen and the pond at Phoenix Park, which covers more than 1,700 acres—a mix of gardens and wide-open spaces—to the west of the city center. Animals are indeed the main attraction at the park, which has hosted the Dublin Zoo since 1831. Other attractions include the 15th-century Ashtown Castle and Victorian tearooms.
