Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful shady paths and well tended lawn and plantings. It’s a memorial garden but in the most happy way! People of all ages were walking there, enjoying the peace and quiet.

Salthill is a bustling holiday resort with all you would expect. Amusement arcades, lots of eateries and pubs, noisy funfares and all that goes with a typical holiday destination. But just up from the funfare is this peaceful enclave of restful contemplation. A park celebrating organ donation. Take a few minutes to ramble around and read the quotes on all the rocks. A beautiful park to while away a few minutes in another wise busy day

A hidden gem that could be easily missed with the hussle & bussle of Salthill. The garden is beautifully landscaped with meaningful messages dotted about. It's definitely worth a visit whether traveling alone or with family
