Excellent quiet garden in central Dublin in the district of the Georgian Houses - even has a little waterfall. We had to ask directions to find it !

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.

The gardens were quite of a surprise for me. I first went there for the Vodafone Comedy Festival, which meant I didn't get a chance to enjoy the park itself. The second visit was amazing. Not far from the centre but you will surely find a quiet place there even when part of it is crowded with people on a... More

Was at the comedy festival here and having been to the Dub many times I'd never even knew about this location because of the more than obvious St Stephens Green ! Lovely spot and very secluded as others have said.

If you want a park to laze in that's not as packed as the Green then Iveagh Gardens is perfect. Just slightly off the central location of the Green so it doesn't really get as many tourists and you are more inclined to see students or office workers on their breaks. Lovely spot.
