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.

    Free entrance. Wide place to walk around. Wonderful huge garden. Glasshouses that full of plant were beautiful. Worth a visit

    Went to Farmleigh today for a walk in the grounds, plenty of parking and choice of nice walks in the grounds. I often go here for a walk on my lunch hour as I work in a dealership on the Navan Road. This is magical at Christmas and lovely all year long. We had a snack in the Boathouse after our walk. It a gem in the Phoenix Park. There are tours of the house too, you can book online.
    I look the Sunken Garden, Walled Garden and the Clock Tower. Loads to do and see here.

    This garden is quite stunning, built in the victorian times, it has something for everyone, from a waterfall to a maze, definitely worth a visit.

    Nice park to walking around, not very big in scale but nice and peaceful.

    Lots of locals walking dogs and exercising which adds to it, a little out from the main city so would give it a miss if you are short on time or not in the area

    The beautiful Garden of Remembrance is "Dedicated to those who gave their lives in the cause of Irish Freedom ". The cross like colorful pool, and the benches along the walls - invite you to relax calmly for a few minutes. Do not miss the "Children of Lir" statue, symbolizing the rebirth of the Irish Nation. Interesting.

    Lovely park with lots of space. It was pretty popular when we were there- mostly as a hangout spot (understandable since it was a beautiful day).

    The new 'world of soil' is amazing. Lots of animals. Estate good value for money as you could spend a whole day here. Easy access to luas and plenty of parking. Plenty of picnic spaces so bring your picnic. Cafes are very expensive €13 for a tea, coffee, croissant and biscuit. No ice cream as advertised.

    A lovely place for a pause- right in the midst of it all. I enjoyed looking at all the different sculptures too.

    A beautifully maintained park and garden. It maintained its original eco- design. It is even better place to walk having learned so much from Robert whose extensive knowledge on the park and garden is impressive. Thank you so much.

    Bought a most beautiful DAHLIA there and got a real bargain as the season is drawing to a close. Staff were most helpful and I got really good information about storing the plant over the winter.Very convenient place for city dwellers. We will be back again.

    This is a wonderful yet little known local amenity. The Santry Community Garden consists of three large interconnected walled gardens that were originally used to grow produce for Santry Court, the historic house that once dominated the park. The community gardens are now managed by a group of local volunteers. The front walled garden is set out in lawns surrounded by nearly 300 metres of herbaceous borders. There is also a formal pond in this garden.

    The middle garden contains an orchard with a large collection of Irish heritage apple and pear trees. Here you will also find a lot of soft fruit including raspberries, blackberries, vines, gooseberries and an apiary with approx 6 beehives.

    The rear walled garden is a market garden where the volunteers grow several varieties of potatoes, root vegetables, brassicas (cabbage, broccolli, kale, cauliflowers etc), peas and beans, onions, garlic, salad greens, tomatoes, sweet corn and rhubarb. There are two poly tunnels, a herb garden, and a wildlife pond area in this garden. Around the walls, more fruit trees are grown, taking advantage of the heat that the walls absorb during the day and slowly releases through the night.
    The gardens are open to the public on Wednesday and Friday fro approx 1pm to 4pm and on Saturday and Sunday from approx 11am to 2pm. (In summer the gardens are often open longer).
