I found out about this place only after spending a couple of weeks in Dublin. Even though it is minutes away from St. Stephen's Green, it is much quieter. I was lucky enough to watch a free Shakespeare play with a twist by Fortune's Fool Productions. Couldn't resist coming again with my friends. The monuments and trees in the park... More

When I first visited it in April, I was dissapointed by the fact that all of the water features were off line due to maintenance. When I came back to Dublin in November, I gave it another shot, and I'm glad I did. The main waterfall was spectacular, as were the other fountains. Although the park itself is not as... More

Our family of three had a nice stroll through Iveagh Gardens on our last day of our holiday in Ireland, munching on our breakfast of bagels and tea as we strolled through the quiet grounds.

I love parks and gardens. This one is suppose to be a secret gem but it is actually rather isolated and has a creepy feel. It is well maintained enough though there are certain spots that need attention, especially where rain collects. Overall, it is a peaceful place and is probably lovely in warmer months.

Iveagh Gardens is very peaceful, and not at all crowded. It's not far from St. Stephen's Green, but not as well known. The waterfall is very pretty.

I seen this in a tour guide as a best kept secret. It should be kept a secret!! Unkept and scruffy looking. Definitely not what it's described to be.

The walled garden is a great escape from the busy city. A great place for a solitary walk ! I often go here alone for some head space. It's also a nice place for a first date 😘

A-maze yourself at lunch by trailing through the Maze- a favourite of Victorian gardens. The hedge is of the height that long legged friends can leap over it and get to the centre without solving the puzzle.

Absolutely love this place, always quiet because it's a little of the beaten track but totally worth finding. Beautiful gardens peaceful surroundings, like St Stephens green without the people.

I was in Dublin with my family. My son 10 years picked Iveagh Gardens in advance. He and his sister 7 years absolutely loved the labyrinth (and the fountains).
