This park is a great way to get away from the noise of the city for awhile. It has lovely fountains and greenery. We enjoyed sitting on the park bench and relaxing in the sun after a morning of tours. I highly recommend this as a quick stop while exploring the city.

This is such a gem in the middle of the city , it was such a lovely day so we picked up some noodles and cycled to this park for a picnic. I will definitely visit here again & spend a little more time there. It was great to see families, friends & couples enjoying the rare good weather in... More

Early on a Saturday morning, the gardens were empty and tranquil. It made for a lovely wander and some beautiful photos. The greenery, paths and rocks were gorgeous. Definitely a must see when in Dublin.

I found this hard to find but it was definately worth all my searching. Went to see a Shakespeare performance here during the summer. Beautiful place, I could have forgotten i was in the city!

These gardens, which are still pretty unknown, are actually an amazing place to take a stroll, to have lunch or relax while lying on the grass, especially during the summer. I think it's well worth a visit!

This small park is a hidden gem, close to Grafton St. It has a beautiful waterfall and plenty of peace and quiet to get away from it all. Occasionally comedy and food festivals take place.

Hard to find if you don't know where it is. Nice place but a bit small. Perfect to find a moment for yourself or maybe a book ? Because of a fairly small amount of visitors, it may be a reasonable alternative for st stephens green.

Iveagh Gardens was near our hotel so we decided to check it out after dropping off our laundry at the launderette. It's no St. Stephen's Green for sure, but still a lovely spot. There were several people with dogs there letting them play in the grassy expanse and I was missing my own dogs so it was a nice treat... More

Yet another garden treasure in Dublin! Easy to miss as it's totally hidden from the street but don't miss it! Beautiful strolling pathways, rose garden, rock garden with specimens from each of Ireland's counties and open fields with amazing flowers.
