This small park is a hidden gem, close to Grafton St. It has a beautiful waterfall and plenty of peace and quiet to get away from it all. Occasionally comedy and food festivals take place.

Hard to find if you don't know where it is. Nice place but a bit small. Perfect to find a moment for yourself or maybe a book ? Because of a fairly small amount of visitors, it may be a reasonable alternative for st stephens green.

Iveagh Gardens was near our hotel so we decided to check it out after dropping off our laundry at the launderette. It's no St. Stephen's Green for sure, but still a lovely spot.

Yet another garden treasure in Dublin! Easy to miss as it's totally hidden from the street but don't miss it! Beautiful strolling pathways, rose garden, rock garden with specimens from each of Ireland's counties and open fields with amazing flowers.

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.
