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

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

Most of the park was closed off the day we went. We stopped in on our first day in Dublin while waiting for our laundry to dry and on the way back from our test-walk to the hotel where I would be doing my conference. We didn't get to see the waterfall in the picture, though, because most of the... More

The sun shone yesterday but then a cold damp front descended and sitting in a tent watching a cooking demo was nearly unbearable. The chef wasn't prepared but then there was no milk in a certain coffee outlet. No one was prepared and you would wonder they must have been thinking about it for a year. Today's punter won't wash...

This place is so peaceful and relaxing. We literally sat for an hour just watching the world go by. The waterfall is so beautiful and the whole park is so green and pretty. A little bit out of the way and it is pretty hidden, but well worth going to find! You can get some beautiful pictures of the waterfall.... More

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.
