This is quite a hidden gem that is located just behind Dublin Castle and in front of The Chester Beatty Library. It is a peaceful oasis in a big bustling city. The gardens are beautifully designed and are very well maintained. There is a lot...More

This is a nice area to walk or sit and avoid the crowds. Not big and not a destination but nice to stop by on your way around Dublin.

There was no one there for the longest time while we were. It seems that this might be an overlooked garden. It was nice and quiet but beautiful more being able to experience alone.

This enormous garden is the perfect place to walk, relax, meditate. However, from an artist point of view, the garden is a museum and art gallery with sculptures from local artists. The memorial of the victims of the civil war or independence uprising will leave...More

This site was on our way to something else, so if you find yourself in our situation (or you are visiting Chester Beatty Library), I think it is worth it to stroll through the gardens. They are not large and don't take very long to...More

The Dubhlinn Gardens are right next to Dublni Castle in the heart of the city. It's a great place to take a break. I had a scone while resting and taking photos of the beautiful flowers.

This is a nice little park with the castle and library as backdrops. It has a cool brick design and there are lots of places to sit and relax. It's a great place to get away from the craziness of the city without being too...More

This park is in the heart of the City - being situated right behind the Dublin Castle. You'd never know it was here as it is in the middle of the old city walls. Uniquely, the round grassy area has lines in the form of...More
