“Wonderful sense of history in the gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

This beautifully kept park is scattered with statues and memorials. Literary figures and historical events preserved in stone make this an extremely interesting garden to wander around. Its atmosphere is charged with history, and gives you a sense of the greatness that has come out of Dublin, and the struggles the city has seen: all within a relaxing park where you can sit ofr hours and soak up the feel of Dublin. This to me is Dublin's heart.

“Nice park to walk or jog around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Close to the hotels, downtown shopping and the pubs. I would stay in a hotel nearby this park like the Conrad if going to Dublin on business.

A big park with lots of space. Looks like a great play park for kids too. a lovely quiet spot in a busy city. Would be great for picnics in summer

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Despite the cold, I loved it, and got a couple of great shots too :) Not recommended for those who are afraid of birds, as there are A LOT. But I loved the atmosphere, and it's very ideal for a simple ramble, a hot take-away cuppa in hand and a good friend by your side :)

“Lovely park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Bit of an oasis in the middle of the city. Right across the street from our hotel, The Shelbourne, and great for a stroll and people watching!
