The Iveagh Gardens are located in Dublin City centre and considered a hidden gem. They were designed in 1865 and combine French formal and the English landscape styles.

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.

Gardens close according to daylight hours. Dogs are only permitted on the lawn on a lead. Dogs are not allowed in the Cascade & Fountain, Rose Garden or Maze.
