Dublin’s Best Kept Secret….


…no longer….

IVEAGH GARDENS has always been my favorite park/garden to go to. St. Stephen’s Green is always so full of people, pigeons (yuck), and there is never a nice patch of grass where you can lie down without hitting someone else’s elbow or jabbing someone else in the waist.

Merrion Square is nice, but the sun doesn’t get to all parts of the park through-out the day.

Iveagh Gardens is perfect; with the fountain, the waterfall, and the complete silence.

Tucked away behind a red brick gate, it’s truly the “Secret Garden” of Dublin.

June 14th to June 17th, different cafes and restaurants are joining together for some outdoor fun in the Iveagh Gardens for the TASTE OF DUBLIN festival.

In a warm summer day like this, the only thing you can do in the country is walk around and enjoy the sun in a park…Ice cream in one hand, book in the other!!

    umm..is it just me or does Taste of Dublin seem like a bit of a rip off? Why are they are charging a 25 Euro entrance fee? I have been to ‘Taste of …’ events in other cities around the world and never had to pay an entrance fee. What is it for anyways? Just to look at food stalls and the park while some one plays music…you can do that on Grafton street followed by going for a walk in Stephens Green on any weekend without paying 25 Euro :)

    Entrance fee should be free while people should just be expected to pay for food tickets inside.

    (kinda) agree, should be no entrance fee!
