The Secret Garden
Replacing horseshoe at St Stephen’s Green
St Anne’s Church, Dawson Street
Later we went to the Secret Garden, commonly known as – but not commonly known – Iveagh Gardens. It was Designed in 1865 by Ninian Niven and owned by Edward Guinness, Earl of Iveagh and Great-Grandson to Arthur Guinness. Edward gave the it to the newly opened University College Dublin in 1908.
I had never heard of it until shortly before, and although there isn’t much to see, it is a beautiful patch of grass, a waterfall, as well as a couple of water features. I’ll definitely be going back to lie on the grass with a cold iced coffee.
That was a good day. A great 24hrs in all.
