Lovely place for a little walk, so much less crowded than St Stephens green and only 3 mins walk away. Make sure to pack a lunch!

We expected more of this garden. to find a parking lot was a hassle. Therefore when we saw that the garden was perimetered to leave a space you can walk in 3 minutes we were disappointed. there was a small maze with a solar clock in the middle. the whole garden was shabby and looked not well attended.

I often go to the Iveagh Gardens for different events and am always struck by how beautiful they are. Lots of unique features like a stunning waterfall and a couple of fountains. It is the perfect place to bring a book and a rug and hang out on a sunny day. Super tranquil, relaxing spot to escape the hub bub... More

went here for a concert, it's a small outside venue holds only around 5,000 people. Close to town and cheap food and drink at venue albeit limited.

If you're looking for a quiet Dublin park to spend some time in then this is the one for you. It's only a short distance from St Stephen's Green and while it does not have the features of Stephen's Green. It is very pleasant

Iveagh Gardens are probably not as known as St Stephen's Green and that's quite nice. There are not as many people there - but still enough. The fountains weren't working when I was there but it still is a beautiful place to be!

Hidden treasure. Some of the fountains weren't in use, but nevertheless this certainly is a place to visit in Dublin.

We knew it was there but it was not as easy to find as it could have been, but that is a benefit for those in the know. The gardens are near the much larger and more extensive St Stevens Green city park. However, they are a more discrete and much less busy haven to those who visit. The park... More
