Iveagh GardensDublin City Dublin - Ireland East
The Iveagh Gardens are among the finest yet least known of Dublin City's parks and gardens. They were designed by Ninian Niven in 1865 as an intermediate design between the French formal and the English landscape styles. The gardens display a unique collection of landscape features, which include rustic grottos, sunken formal panels of lawn with fountain centre pieces, wilderness, woodlands, maze, rosarium, American garden, archery grounds, rockeries and rooteries. The conservation and restoration of the Iveagh Gardens commenced in 1995 and to date most of the features have been restored, for example the Maze in Box hedging with a sundial as a centrepiece. The recently restored Cascade and exotic tree ferns all help to create a sense of wonder in the 'Secret Garden'. The pre-1860s rose varieties add an extra dimension to the Victorian rosarium. Admission is free.
