"Phoenix Park" Phoenix Park Tip by Mikebond
Phoenix Park, Dublin: 48 reviews and 101 photos
Phoenix Park is located just outside Dublin. Its area of 712 hectares make it the largest park of the city and the largest enclosed urban public park in Europe. Its name could come from Fionn Uisce, "Clear water", referring to an ancient source.
The 60-metre obelisk where I am portrayed with some course mates is the Wellington Testimonial, erected by Sir Robert Smirke in 1817 to honour the Dubliner Sir Arthur Wellesley (1769-1852), better known as the Duke of Wellington, who defeated Napoleon in Waterloo.
