Marlay Park is 121 hectares (300 acres) suburban park located in Rathfarnham in County Dublin, at the foothills of the Dublin Mountains. The parkland is comprised of woodlands, ponds, and walks. Enjoy a visit to the Marly Demesne which includes a Victorian cottage, lake boathouse and viewing platform. Another must-see is the walled garden which features colourful period plants, an orangery, arbour and water fountain. The park marks the start point for Wicklow Way walk, the full walk can take 8 to 10 days to finish, although you can choose to just walk part of the trail.
