For those sightjoggers who want that feeling of getting away from it all while staying close by our city, our park life tour provides you with the perfect escape.

Our tour takes us to the Phoenix Park which at 707 hectares (1752 acres) is the largest urban park in Europe. Founded as a royal deer park in the 17th century, it is today an exercise hub for Dubliners and where the sightjogger can see Ireland’s unique traditional sports of Gaelic Football and Hurling in action amongst other sports such as Polo.

The Park Life tour passes the Irish President’s residence, a military fort, where a team of Irish men and women participated in one of the most significant insurgent events of the Rising ( Ireland’s independence rebellion) and a short demonstration of Ireland’s national field games while making sure the deer don’t join in.

Phoenix Park contains arguably the best natural facilities for distance running training in this city, as it has a continuous natural trail of some 16km. Also, to this day a herd of fallow deer continue to roam in the park and they can be seen around and grazing amongst the gaelic football pitches !

Note that our Park Life Tour runs on Sunday mornings only to make sure you catch a glimpse of Gaelic sports.
