Meet the Fawns in the Phoenix Park, Tour Number 2! - On Your Bike!

The deer herd in Dublin’s Phoenix Park has rightly been lauded and admired by many commentators. This special tour is a chance to meet some recently born young fawns from within the herd, and understand the life of the deer in the Phoenix Park. It is also a great treat for children to get so up-close and to learn about the life and habits of the deer. Phoenix Park Deer Ranger Terry Moore will be on hand to guide you on an exploration of the history and habits of the Phoenix Park deer herd. So, as well as actually meeting the deer, you will learn a lot about the management and preservation of this unique city deer herd!.

So come along and join us at the Phoenix Park Visitor Centre for a tour start time of 6.30pm. The tour will finish at approximately 8.30pm, and you are welcome to join other members of your tour for a post tour chat and refreshments in the Hole in the Wall pub on Blackhorse Avenue.

Every tour participant will receive a free colourful Phoenix Park Passport, which entitles you to discounts at various attractions with the Phoenix Park!

Places will be limited on the tour, so to reserve your place please fill out this short online registration form.

If you need a bike for the tour, have no fear! Phoenix Park Bike Hire will provide you with a free bike hire for the evening. Just email them at and give them your details, and the tour you wish to take. You will need to collect your bike by 6.15pm at the latest.
