"Tranquil Reminder" Garden of Remembrance Tip by Jase1177
Garden of Remembrance, Dublin: 11 reviews and 25 photos
The Garden of Remembrance is lovely memorial of those who died in various rebellions or uprisings through Irish history, most recently the 1916 Easter Rising and the War for Independence. The garden features a long pool in the shape of a cross, surrounded by benches, walkway, a lawn, plants, and flowers. At the head of the cross, the garden has a large sculpture of children and swans (the tale of Children of Lir, I have since read), and a reflecting pool. Behind the sculpture is a wall with a poem inscribed. The garden is a peaceful area (despite being near a busy stree) to rest for a few minutes, while admiring the dedication to the lives lost through history.
