While we were near the Gaol and the Guinness Factory we walked through this majestic park. Hardly anyone was there and was a scenic war memorial park. Take a few minutes and watch the rowing teams in the lake.

These gardens were designed by Edward Lutyens to commemorate the dead of the Irish Regiments in the Great War 1914-1919. Sadly they went into decline and were virtually abandoned up to the 1980's. Happily with the Peace Process and the realignment of Anlo Irish relations they can now assume their righful place in Irish history. The recent visit by H.M.The Queen has highligted their importance. A delightful place to stroll and enjoy the tranquility amidst the surrounding frenetic traffic. Close to the nearby historic Kilmainham Gaol and King's Hospital Museum of Modern Art. If you are not familiar with the Island Bridge area it would be advisable to get precise instructions on location before you set out to visit.

a very beautiful gardens especially in summer and spring when the roses are red and lots of green. All family will enjoy the day out and you can bring the dog out.

These gardens are a memorial dedicated to the memory of 49,400 Irish soldiers who died in the 1914 – 1918 war. The names of all the soldiers are inscribed in Harry Clarke manuscripts in the granite bookrooms in the gardens. The gardens were designed by the famous architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. There are sunken rose gardens that provide a blaze of colour in summer and are a lovely place to visit, sweeping down to the River Liffey.
