Beautifully kept. You can walk around it anytime but would love to see a tour guide there. The river beside it adds to its charm.

These gardens are not only a fabulous oasis in the madness of the city, they commemorate the oft-forgotten Irish men and women who gave their lives during WW1 and WW2.

Very beautiful, perfectly-sized park with open areas, sports fields, wooded areas, and nice areas near the river. A great place for a walk or to just bring a blanket and hang out. Only downside is that there are no toilets!

We were walking around Dublin and wanted to see something green. The flowers were all beautiful and the trees and grass all well kept. A nice find in the center of a large metropolitan area.
