Áras an Uachtaráin, the residence of the President of Ireland dates from 1750 and is located in the centre of the park adjacent to the United States Ambassador's residence, which was built in 1774. Many other historic buildings and monuments are located in the Park. Dublin Zoo is also contained within the grounds of the park! When visiting Dublin, we definitely recommend a visit to Phoenix Park. And best of all, general admission to the park is FREE!
The Phoenix Park is open 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week, all year round.
The main gates of the Park at Parkgate Street and Castleknock Gate are open 24 hours. The side gates to the Park are open from 7am until 11pm.
