Centrally situated with lots of space to sit and relax and take in Dublin's splendor. This evergreen park took away the hustle and bustle of the city.

Free entrance in a magnificent garden where you can take a walk. If you're lucky enough you might also see the squirrels. They are so curious and used to see people around that they come to your hand hoping for something to eat.

I grew up in this area and rarely visit now but I have fond memories of the wonderful gardens. It is a little bleak in winter but still has massive appeal for an afternoon stroll. The orchids are out at the moment but to see these gardens in their splendour, visit in June or later in the summer.

Amazing glass house filled with exotic flowers and plants, these gardens are a must see. Although it takes a bit of a bus journey to get there (you can cycle either), the gardens are amazing to stroll around. The historical glass houses must be visited! Perfect for whiling away a Sunday afternoon.
