About Phoenix Park - Ashtown Visitor Centre

Phoenix Park - Ashtown Visitor Centre is located at Nunciature Road, Phoenix Park in Dublin 8.

The Visitor Centre offers a lively and exntertaining exhibition and audio-visual presentation on the history and the wildlife of the Phoenix Park from 3500 B.C. to the present day.

Adjoining the Centre is the fully restored Ashtown Castle. It was found hidden within the walls of a much larger and more recent building that was being used by the Papal Nuncio until 1978. At that time, the more recent and larger building was deemed structurally irreparable due to dry rot and as it was being demolished, Ashtown Castle was discovered. It is thought to originally date from the 1430s.
