That this place is a bid of a hidden gem (with stress on hidden) was made clear by the taxi driver who took us there: first he tried to drive us to a different part of Dublin, then he left us off at St Stephens Green which is probably the worst place to start from if you want to go... More

Iveagh Gardens is a very nice park which is a bit hidden out of Hartccourt, it is very nice and as it is both a bit out of the way and hidden it is way more quieter than St Stephen's Green or Merrion Square. It is a very nice (one of my favorites) spot to relax and enjoy a quiet... More

Beautiful cute little park, we stopped in after stroking around St. Stephen's. Unfortunately for us the fountains were turned off, but it was still quite enjoyable!

This park is a nice, little, secluded spot just of Harcourt St. It's much quieter than nearby St. Stephens Green which make it that much more rewarding as there are fewer tourists. Beautiful tress and water features, this place really is a hidden gem.

Within the always busy life going on in Dublincity, I discovered the beauty and tranquility of the hidden Iveagh Gardens today. 🍀🍁🐿🌿🌰🍂Very nice garden/park where squirrels were busy hunting for their winter meals burying acorns under the trees. Small wall surrounded park in the middle of a busy city and hidden away from most tourists who will move on directly... More

Great garden area that is slightly hidden, meaning the nearby Stephens green tends to draw all the tourists allowing others to relax in the Iveagh gardens without too much hustle and bustle. Also has concerts here during the summer which I've been to the Grizzly Bear concert and this was a fantastic spot for it.

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.

Thank Janhen14
