Phoenix Park, Dublin
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.
