Phoenix Park Dublin Cycle Loop Directions
0 to 9km
After entering the park from the east side, go uphill to the first roundabout, past the obelisk, and turn left. After a short descent, keep straight through a crossroads, taking the road going uphill to the left.
An alternative way is right up the Khyber Road, which has a fantastic even gradient and is very enjoyable. Going left at the top, near the Papal Cross, brings you back to this loop.
The original route goes uphill and then around several bends on the descent. It joins another road (from the Papal Cross). Keep downhill (left) and take a right by the gate at the bottom.
This long easy climb brings [5km marker] you to a roundabout at the main road. Go straight through and stay on that road. After 3.6km it momentarily becomes single-lane and nears an exit.
Turn right here to return to the roundabout by the obeslisk. Turn left to go back down the hill to the start point.
