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.

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

Such a wonderful, quiet and calm space in the heart of Dublin. The landscaping is excellent and wonderfully maintained. Walk around and take it in, it's quiet lovely.

It's a lovely park like any other lovely park, but doesn't seem to be as well known, so it's much more peaceful! The little hedge maze is fun, too :)

I found this place many years ago after attending the old Harcourt St Children's hospital. The entrance is tucked away at the end of a cul-de-sac at the Stephen's green end of Harcourt Street. It is bordered by the National concert hall and the buildings of Harcourt st and Stephen's green including the Department of foreign affairs and the University... More

Saw Paloma Faith here, didn't know what to expect of the venue, but have so say what a fantastic place tucked away in the middle of Dublin. Didn't get to explore the rest of the gardens, but a thoroughly enjoyable summers evening spent here..

This is a small park but if you're in Dublin you should definitely seek it out and have a look around. It has a real secret garden feel to it and there is so much to see! We loved the maze which is a lot trickier than it looks! So peaceful and relaxing.
