Runners of the Park

Listen to regular runner in the park Fiona Donnellan as she sets off on her daily run in the Phoenix Park. Fiona discusses the value of the Phoenix Park, and why it is vital to appreciate this urban retreat and all it has to offer.



The Phoenix Park offers runners a haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The wide variety of tracks available means you'll never have to do the same run twice! You can explore every crevice of the park while on foot. There is no other place in Ireland that you could pass by a herd of deer, a magazine fort and a 116 foot cross all in one run!

This magnificent parkland provides a location for many running clubs such as The Phoenix Park Runners, Run with Tina and The Dublin Frontrunners AC. The park also plays host to the Dublin Half Marathon and many other charity and fun runs throughout the year. It really is a fantastic amenity for the runners of Dublin and beyond.
