Iveagh Gardens, Dublin: 4 reviews and 4 photos

<font color='blue'><font size='2'><b> Iveagh Gardens</font></b>
<font color='green'> Developed as part of the Iveagh Estate in the 18th century, these gardens are still one of Dublin's best kept secrets. They lie behind the National Concert Hall and can be accessed via Harcourt Street, but are so well-tucked away that they remain quiet and tranquil even in the height of summer. The grounds were laid out at a time when all things Gothic were the height of fashion, so prepare to be slightly spooked by the park's dark, ivy-clad corners, eerie statues and winsome grotto. The gardens are currently under restoration and a Victorian rosarium has been recently rebuilt. A treasure.
