Incredibly, I'd never been here before and it's only a stone's throw from the city centre. Well recommended to spend an hour strolling by the Liffey, or for a picnic, but also to pay respect to those who lost their lives in the great war.

It must be 30+ years since I last visited. Thankfully it has been fully restored and now serves as a fitting tribute to the almost 50,000 Irish who died in World War 1.

Dedicated to the 50,000 Irishmen who gave their lives in WW1. This beautiful garden is a somber reminder of our past. It is a quiet place to stroll around the monuments and reflect. On both of the Big B Buss routes.
