Recently attended the Elvis Costello gig in the Iveagh Gardens in Dublin. Couldn't recommend this venue enough. Luckily it was perfect weather conditions, so that couldn't even take away from it. Lovely layout, easily accessible, close to Luas, walking distance to Stephens Green, Grafton St. etc. If there is an event or gig you want to go to taking place... More

We eventually found these after firstly walking past the entrance. These should not be called gardens. Just a few trees and grass with no other features of note.

For a nice respite from nearby Grafton Street and Temple Bar area, stroll through this garden. There is a small waterfall, fountains, a formal rose garden, a maze, a dog park and lots of benches to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Stroll through these gardens, escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Plenty of benches in this clean, well maintained park. His is also a great venue for the Taste of Dublin and the Vodafone comedy festival. So different and much smaller than the better known St. Stephens Green.

Iveagh Gardens is an unexpected little treat in the middle of the city, lovely to go and have a stroll or bring a picnic blanket & a lunch. It's small but worth a visit.

There wasn't much to see here. The waterfall was nice but other than that it seemed like it was more for the locals to hang out at rather than a tourist attraction. If you are looking for a place to just relax, this place would be nicer than the packed larger parks.

Give this one a miss. Most of the gardens are in a state of disrepair or are being renovated. The rose garden was a complete disappointment, an unkempt dirt patch with no roses. Not worth stopping for and certainly now worth going out of your way for.

Hidden in the city this is a beautiful small park that holds music and food events each year , if your tired of Stephens green walk the extra 200m up Hartcourt st to this spot , it wont be packed

This is a favorite of mine - I love this park. Unfortunately the water wasn't running today, but when it is, the fountains are spectacular. I also like that not a lot of people go to it, but everyone certainly should see it at least once!

Beautiful serene park, just off Harcourt st. An oasis. Not many know of it, even Dubliners.. saw a Shakespeare production here in August 2015, 'The taming of the shrew' by Fortune's fool productions. Gorgeous to see this in an outdoor setting on a sunny day, and for free. These Shakespeare productions run for a few days each summer. I recommend... More
