Developed as part of the Iveagh Estate in the 18th century, these gardens are still one of Dublin's best kept secrets, 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 well secluded from the main streets and give you the peace and the quiet for a relaxing stroll. Please check the website for the opening hours.
