All roads may lead to Rome, but in Dublin a large number make a detour via (or due to) the Phoenix Park. You will be able to reach the park by Dublin Bus, head for Castleknock, the Cabra and Navan Road or Chapelizod (get off at Parkgate Street or Chapelizod Road near Islandbridge Gate). Many tour buses are routed through the park as well.
The LUAS will go as far as Heuston Station, between five and ten minutes walk from the park. You can also take a local train to Ashtown Station, again a few minutes walk away. If you are using your car you will have no problem getting to the park, though finding a convenient parking space may prove challenging on weekends.
