War Memorial GardensDublin City Dublin - Ireland East
The War Memorial Gardens in Dublin City are one of the most famous memorial gardens in Europe. They are dedicated to the memory of 49,400 Irish soldiers who died in the 1914-1918 war. The names of all the soldiers are contained in the beautifully illustrated Harry Clarke manuscripts in the granite book rooms in the gardens. The War Memorial Gardens are not only a place of remembrance but are also of great architectural interest and beauty. They are one of four gardens in this country designed by the famous architect Sir Edwin Lutyens (1869-1944). Sunken rose gardens, herbaceous borders and extensive tree planting make for an enjoyable visit in any season. Admission is free.
