The Iveagh Gardens are one of Dublin city’s hidden treasures. It is a green oasis in the heart of the capital. The gardens were designed in 1865 by Ninian Niven and were restored in 1995 the majority of its features such as the fountains, archery grounds and it’s beautiful rosarium.
The gardens are located minutes away from St. Stephen’s green and are parallel to Harcourt street. They are easily accessible by public transport and are located only a 2-minute walk from the Harcourt Street stop on the Luas green line. The 145, 46A, and 15 Dublin bus routes will also drop you close to the iconic attraction.
