The Iveagh Gardens are one of Dublin City's least known parks and gardens. The gardens display a diverse collection of landscape features which include rustic grottos, sunken formal panels of lawn with fountain centre pieces, wilderness, woodlands, a yew maze, a rosarium, an American garden, archery grounds, rockeries and rooteries. I has a history going back 300 years.
The conservation and restoration of the Iveagh Gardens commenced in 1995 and to date, most of the features have been restored and includes pre-1860s rose varieties.
The water feature has rock samples from each of the 32 counties of Ireland. Iveagh Gardens have been awarded a Green flag for 2019-2020 which is an international bench marking standard for parks and green spaces.
