Welcome,

Through our Phoenix Park Programme 2019, the Office of Public Works wants to provide a broad range of exhibitions/ talks/ walks/events that are interesting, scientific, educational, fun and above all else family orientated to our visitors.

The Visitor Centre complex has become a major attraction with almost 1.7 million visitors in 2018 with the centre itself attracting over 201,000 visitors last year. The centre is located on the grounds of Ashtown Demesne and consists of an interpretive centre, exhibition space, walledgarden, playground and an award-winning restaurant. The Victorian Walled Garden now attracts over half a million visitors per year. The garden is managed and maintained using organic principles and it is hoped that it will inspire and educate both young and old on the horticultural skill involved in growing fruit, vegetables and flowers in a sustainable manner. Why not visit during the year and meet the fantastic gardeners who look after the garden?

The Office of Public Works were honoured during 2018 when the Phoenix Park was one of only two parks in the world to receive a prestigious Gold Award in the Inaugural International Large Urban Parks Awards organised by World Urban Parks. This award showcases Dublin as a green city with the Park providing many environmental, health, social and recreational benefits to the people that use it and the surrounding communities.

We hope that our Programme for 2019 continues to highlight the many benefits that the Phoenix Park offers to our visitors.

I hope you enjoy the programme and maybe see you at some of the events that we have organised.

Kind regards,

Paul McDonnell
Park Superintendent
