This is a lovely contrast to the hustle and bustle of O'Connell St. The water features are brilliant with their colourful tiles being reflected through the water. There are a number of areas in which one can sit and admire the garden and have time...More

This is a bit off the tourist list of 'must see' places, but given its connection to Dublin's history, it's well worth a stop. It's dedicated to those who gave their lives for Irish freedom. On the day we stopped, the pool of water needed...More

This garden is located at the top of O'Connell St. a bit north of the Parnell monument. I found it very moving. I really liked the sculpture of the Children of Lir. If you happen to be in that area, it is worth a visit.

Always pay my respects! Very close the the Castle hotel, excellent place to sit and relax, take in the scenery. Very close to most all Dublin attractions or a block from bus services to all attractions!
