Close to St Stephens Green, but much quieter. A definite oasis. Beautiful Victorian roses, waterfall, fountains.

On our recent 2 plus week visit around the UK we had occasion to visit Iveagh Gardens to take in The National concert. The grounds offered not only a terrific place to walk around and escape the hustle of the city, but offered an exceptional venue for the concert. The grounds are well maintained and it was a very pleasant... More

I think at the moment they are doing renovations or something of the sort. I walked out there last week, and I wished I hadn't. The waterfall was closed off, there were portable metal gates blocking half the park, and none of the grounds looked like they were being maintained at the moment. I have no doubt it could be...

One of the best kept secrets in Dublin. For years I didn't know this place existed until a couple of years ago. A well kept secret, worth finding. Just off Harcourt Street up from Stephen Green it's much more peaceful and tranquil than the Green. For total escapism within the city - come hear to chill out in the sun... More

Just south of its better known neighbour St Stephen's Green, this beautiful garden is well worth a visit. There are a number of lovely fountains and a man made waterfall.

Iveagh Gardens is a lovely place to take a walk. It's only 4k to walk the following tour I created for myself: Trinity College (Book of Kells), Merrion Square, St.Stephen's Green, Iveagh Gardens, St. Patrick's, Christ Church. Iveagh Gardens was my favorite of the three green spaces I listed above. It had a love rose garden as well as some... More

Lovely park and quite central location, so worth of visit. Statues, fountains, little waterfall and especially in mornings there are many people with their dogs. Nice little breather after all the bustle in Temple Bar and Grafton Street.

Beautiful park within 2 blocks south of St Stephen Green. This park is quiet and well maintained with several paths for walking/jogging or plenty of places to take in the sun (when available). Nice rose garden (wasn't in bloom yet in early May) and a small maze of yews.

The better garden in Dublin might not be as famous as St. Stephens Green, but this turns out to be an advantage. Basically, you have some nice fountains, some statues, good lawn and plenty of park benches to hang out and relax. Furthermore, it is not as crowded as St. Stephens Green, especially on sunny days.
