Despite some restoration between 2004 and 2007, this historic garden which includes numerous structures clad in brightly coloured ceramic tiles, still has an air of dereliction. When we visited it was deserted and had the air of an abandoned project. The sad feeling is not helped by the garden being hemmed in by large appartment blocks. Worth a quick look... More

Afte getting off at the Garavan stop and seeing the back tower, we searched and searched and searched....to no avail. The entry simply could not be found. After an hour we gave up. Ridiculous!

This garden fell into disrepair some years ago. It still resembles a building site Much more needs to be done. I'm sure many visitors are not overly impressed
