Made famous by the Queen's visit

Even on a blustery February day the Garden of Remembrance looked well. Too cold to spend too much time there but hope to return someday.

The Garden of Remembrance is one of the most peaceful places in Dublin. Celtic symbols, patches of grass and a beautiful fountain all mingle there. It is also a memorial for those who died for the cause of Irish freedom. Overall, I do recommend a visit there.

It might be in the middle of the city, but this tiny park and memorial site fel quiet and intimate. Its not much to see, unless you re a history geek. But i hope you will see it, as you will sure walk by it in your trip to Dublin.

Quiet and peaceful park near the centre of Dublin city. In memory of those who died to free Ireland from tyranny. The outside could be kept cleaner...

When one goes through Ireland and Dublin's history because it does seem that they have fought many wars - some of them foreign wars and some of them in their own homeland. It is also sad to hear stories about the lives of the people who have given their lives for these causes. Therefore the city is littered with monuments... More

During the centenary year a new entrance has been added from the fine north side of the square. This has had the effect of opening up the park and making it more accessible again. Finally opened in 1966 on the 50th anniversary of the Easter Rising the garden is a memorial to all those who made the ultimate sacrifice of... More

I found this park by talking to some of the locals. This is where the Queen spoke to bring healing between England and Ireland years after Ireland's Revolution. If you are a history buff, this is worth the walk. Not far from the GPO Museum.

Not far from the hustle and bustle of O'Connell Street, this Garden is beautifully designed and maintained. As a National monument, it fulfils its purpose of remembrance. Do visit.

Despite the construction work going on around the garden, it was still well worth the visit, and a very good place to sit and reflect. The main area is sunken down and that makes strolling along the water feature towards the western sculpture even more impressive. When we were there it was a dark grey day so that made it... More
