The Phoenix Park at 707 hectares (1752 acres) is a historic landscape of international importance and one of the largest designed landscapes in any European city. It was originally established as a Royal deer park in the 17th century. The Park is open 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week, all year round and is home to Áras an Uachtaráin, the President’s House.

Admission is free to a lively and entertaining self guiding exhibition on the history and the wildlife of the Phoenix Park which is on display in the Phoenix Park Visitor Centre. Here the visitor can enjoy a historical interpretation of the park from 3500 B.C. to the present day and can also view a 20 minute audio-visual presentation on the Phoenix Park through the ages or on the history of Áras an Uachtaráin. A lift and stairs access the first floor of the Visitor Centre where there are further exhibits and a nature section. There is also an Exhibition Room for visiting art exhibitions where exhibitions in various media and art and craft demonstrations take place regularly.

Adjoining the Visitor Centre is the fully restored Ashtown Castle, a medieval tower house that probably dates from the 17th century.

There is also a restaurant, Phoenix Café, in the grounds of the Visitor Centre and a courtyard for eating al fresco.

Every Sunday morning free children's workshops on nature awareness, history and heritage and arts and crafts take place, suitable for ages 6-12 years inclusive, between 11.00am - 12.00pm. Materials are provided and adult supervision is required.

Free admission tickets are issued at the Visitor Centre to visit Áras an Uachtaráin on Saturdays only.
