Fodor's Review

Opened 50 years after the Easter Rising of 1916, the garden in Parnell Square commemorates those who died fighting for Ireland's freedom. At the garden's entrance is a large plaza; steps lead down to the fountain area, graced with a sculpture by contemporary Irish artist Oisín Kelly, based on the mythological Children of Lír, who were turned into swans. The garden serves as an oasis of tranquility in the middle of the busy city.

Attractive small park-like area

Very nicely done tiny park-like area, has evocative statue at the back with flagpole, cross-shape pool, and benches to sit. Attractive spot to relax or have a picnic lunch during the day north of the Liffey.
