The Iveagh Gardens are among the finest and least known of Dublin's parks and gardens

They were designed by Ninian Niven, in 1865, as an intermediate design between the 'French Formal' and the 'English Landscape' styles.

They demonstrated the artistic skills of the landscape Architect of the mid 19th century and display a unique collection of landscape features which include Rustic Grotto's and Cascade, sunken formal panels of lawn with Fountain Centre Pieces, Wilderness, Woodlands, Maze, Rosarium, American Garden, Archery Grounds, Rockeries and Rooteries.

The conservation and restoration of the Gardens commenced in 1995 and to date, most of the features have been restored, for example, the Maze in Box hedging with a Sundial as a center piece

The recently restored Cascade and exotic tree ferns all help to create a sense of wonder in the 'Secret Garden'.  The pre-1860s rose varieties add an extra dimension to the Victorian Rosarium.
