Mountjoy SquareDublin City Dublin - Ireland East
Located in the centre of Mountjoy Square, once Dublin's premier Georgian area and comprising 1.8 hectares, this park was originally created by the developer of the square, Luke Gardiner, Lord Mountjoy, around 1800 as part of his grand concept which envisaged the great sweep of Gardiner Street down to the Custom House. Michael Stapleton and Charles Thorp were among the designers and some of the houses have very fine plasterwork. While the square was upgraded in the late 1980's, its full potential as a Georgian Park must await the completion of the restoration programme.
