“Peaceful and Serene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

This is a little memorial established to remember all those Irish who have died in the various battles fought around the world. It is fasinating to see the names, and remember those who fought for the peace and security of our lands. The park is somewhat small, so it won't take you long to view the memorial, but it is peaceful and serene.

“War dead memorial”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Peaceful little garden memorial (surprising as it's beside a main road!). It's just at the front of the cemetery across the road from the Harlequin Hotel. It names all the war dead from Mayo who died in many of the world's major conflicts.
As a memorial it is nice and effective but it would have been nice to have had more detail of some of the people. There is a plaque mentioning one nurse's story briefly and that helps being the place to life but more information would help. It's well worth spending 15 minutes here if you are in Castlebar.

This a small little park in the centre of Castlebar remembering the poor souls who died in the past wars. Its beautifully done and is well worth a visit.

“lovely memorial”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

This is right opposite the Harlequin Hotel and is lovely to see if you are in the area. It is a very small pary but very very well kept. A really good memorial.

“Respect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

This is one of the few memorials outside of Dublin that celebrates the sacrifices made by men and women in the conflicts that have taken place in the world. The design is similar to the Vietnam Memorial wall in Washington D.C.
The names of those who have died are constantly being updated, the most recent being from the conflict in Afghanistan.
