Great location for an outdoor concert. Toilets and bars well placed and just the right amount of people. Usual idiots on their mobiles all night but thats par for the course now sadly

A hidden park in the centre of the city, mixture of formal and informal plantings, fountains and lawns perfect to enjoy a cup of coffee from a nearby cafe or a picnic lunch.

Beautiful garden, only busy on summer lunchtimes with office workers having picnics. Much quieter than Stephens Green.

This garden which is hidden off Harcourt St but also accessible from the back of the National Concert Hall is a beautiful quiet garden with statuary, fountains, a small maze and waterfall. It is calmer that the slightly larger St Stephen so has a special appeal.

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
