Pollen hotspots in Dublin
As you might expect, grassy or tree lined parks are hay fever hotspots, and in Dublin you're never too far from a green space. Phoenix Park is famously the largest enclosed park in any European capital, but there are still 299 parks to choose from within Dublin’s city limits.
Around 17% of Dublin is dedicated to outdoor green space, an impressive number, but the bulk of this can be found in the city’s biggest parks, primarily Phoenix, Bull Island, and St. Anne’s. If you suffer from hay fever, it may be best to avoid these areas when pollen levels are at their peak.
Dublin’s climate can also be good or bad for pollen depending, quite literally, on how the wind blows. Temperate climates can result in high tree pollen, with trees thriving between 13-15 °C. Any rises in temperature can be a double-edged sword, with grass pollen at its highest between 18-25 °C.
